Author has written 30 stories for Dragon Age, StarTrek: The Next Generation, Final Fantasy X, and Mass Effect.

As with many, my love of Dragon Age: Origins made me start writing Fan Fiction again.

The majority of my current work is short stories, but I will add longer sagas as the mood strikes me.


ANNOUNCEMENT!

Rise of Arlathan, the sequel to Rise of the Wolf has now entered publication! It is the first volume of a planned multi-volume Dragon Age epic entitled Beyond Thedas.

Since it is co-written with Danijou, we are using the joint FanfFiction account of BeyondThedas to publish the story.

Rise of Arlathan starts when the arrival of two mysterious women attracts the attention of the now-retired Bard Ives Durante. His curiosity sparks a chain of events that will lead from the Grey Warden's Keep in Val Royeaux all the way to the Great Hall of Arlathan. Join Ives and his companions as they search to find a cure for the taint, and discover that no less than the future of Thedas is at stake.

Stretching from the Halls of Weisshaupt to the shores of Rivaini and beyond, this story is fully written and awaits only publication!

Rise of Arlathan will be updated weekly. Additional information complete with character bios and artwork is available at the BeyondThedas website.


Hope for Light, the Blight novel of Kalindra Tabris, is in progress! Publication has been put on hold due to Real Life Sucks.

Kalindra Tabris has already lost much in her life, but always she hoped for a bright future. When even that is taken away, she must embrace a life dedicated to a single purpose: stop the Blight. Though she fights demons and darkness both within and without as she travels across Ferelden, still she refuses to give in to the doubts which threaten to drag her back into the pain of her past. Yet deep down, she never gives up the last hope: the Hope for Light.

Rating for: Sexual content, violence, mature themes.


Portraits of Kalindra is a corollary to Hope for Light, and will feature little snippets of fluff and romance about Kalindra as her more serious Blight novel progresses. The links to the pictures for each chapter will be posted here.

Chapter 1: Inspiration
Chapter 2: Words


Rise of the Wolf is the tale of the fall of Arlathan, the ancient Elvhen city of Dragon Age lore. A sequel has been written and will be published starting in May.


Though We Had All of Time is my full-length Star Trek: The Next Generation book inspired by the following quote:

Nothing is there to come, and nothing past, But an eternal Now does always last.

- Abraham Cowley, Davideis

My story concerns the infinite as much as the finite, the irrational as much as the rational, and explores the nature of what and why we are.


I also have a series of short stories published under the title Once Upon a Time. These are Dragon Age: Origins stories that each highlight a character that attempts to tell an aspect of their story in a 'fairy tale' kind of way, but not really. They are meant to be humorous, and they are a kick to write, so I hope you enjoy reading them, too! (I know that there's a TV series with that name, but I came up with the name independently. *le sigh*) This series will be updated as the pieces are written.


Please welcome The Further Adventures of Dailana Cousland. Dailana Cousland made her first appearance in Chapter 8 of Once Upon a Time, "Sten, The Valley Girl Edition", and then wouldn't leave me alone until I gave her her own series. This series is a loving yet humorous parody of Dragon Age: Origins, and will contain mild language, some hot smexy lovin', and the occasional violence as Dailana teaches her enemies that she is 'dumb but deadly'. The stories will all concern the same character, but won't necessarily need to be read in chronological order to be enjoyed. Though not frequently updated, Dailana's story is not over yet!


Thank you to everyone who reads and enjoys my works!

Modest in Temper, Bold in Deed by Bethadots reviews
Rosalie Trevelyan was sent to spy on the conclave by her bardmaster, but now her hand glows green and half of Thedas is calling her the Herald of Andraste. All she wants is to mend the hole in the sky and disappear before anyone can discover she isn't really who she says she is. Of course, between Iron Bull and the Inquisition's spymaster, that might be easier said than done...

Then It Was Over reviews
The Archdemon is dead, but not without a great sacrifice. - Author's Note: This is my very first piece of Dragon Age fanfic ever written from 2011. It was originally for a prompt on the old Zevran thread over on the original BSN forums. The prompt was "You're so beautiful" and had to include a piece of poetry somewhere in the story, and somehow I ended up with the below fic. Emjoy!
