*QUICK IMPORTANT NOTE*
If you have a fabulous idea for a story...by all means, write it! No one can write your story but you.
I try to avoid reading fanfic on the subject or genre I'm currently working on. I don't want to be accused of taking anyone's ideas, and I definitely don't want to unconsciously call upon something I read and incorporate it thinking its mine without conscious realization that it came from elsewhere. That's not fair to me nor to the people whose writing I unwittingly stole.
Also, I usually do not take suggestions unless A) you're a very good friend of mine and B) I've asked for a suggestion because I'm stuck. If you make a suggestion in a review or a PM and it appears in the story then it's because you just suggested to me what I was already going to do: you did, in fact, just guess where the story was going anyway. IF you make a fabulous suggestion and I DO decide to use it, I will not only tell you so before I do it, I will put you in the A/N as having made the suggestion. I strive to give credit where credit is due, and everyone deserves to know where a great idea came from. If I don't tell you and I don't include it in the A/N, then you pretty much just had a good guess on where I was going with the story regardless, and its coincidence that you happened to be right.
About me and my writing:
I am the very model of a hyperactive literist. I write very quickly. Contrary to popular belief...I am not a machine :) On that note, my posting on this site has unfortunately slowed a great deal. I am still posting, and I will still finish the stories I have going and even do new ones, but I'm in a new job and very soon about to get married, so my time is not as abundant as it used to be. Please be patient with me.
I have been writing stories since I was five years old. I am a writer, it’s what I am, what I do, and what I can’t live without.
My specialized genres tend to be horror, fantasy, sci-fi, adventure, and thorough blendings of all four. I rarely have more than a basic premise in mind when I write and I tend to let the characters and tale tell me where it wants to go. I’m a huge believer in the fact that stories already exist, it’s simply up to the writer to bring them to life. You will find that I write a lot of strong female characters.
None of the above is absolute, it’s just what I lean towards. I often write in partnership with the very talented Carissa Starr and have written in partnership with others.
I’m not out to make money at this (though it would be nice if I could make a living). I write because I must, and writing is never complete unless there is a reader to take the story in.
I am also a lucid and repetitive dreamer. A lot of the ideas from my original fic come from recurring dreams I've had since I was very small.
Some folk will be extremely excited to learn about some of the following. Note: Sequels do NOT necessarily mean anyone is safe. I am, as most have said...evil. :)
Terminator: On hold
DE5: Currently in progress
Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age 2
Dragon Age 3
Wing Commander, the Human Heart: Currently in progress
Portal: On hold
Kill Bill: On hold
ME: Citadel: Currently in progress
Original Fic published:
I have self-published a few things under Threadhopper's Press (threadhoppers dot com) . They are available in paper and eBook copies. Right now we are working through Lulu but our distributor might change in the near future. If you are interested in any of the below titles, just go to the threadhopper's page and click on the link on the upper right corner labeled 'Lulu Bookstore'.
Already published books are:
Dragon Saint (first book in the Dragon Saint Series) This is one of my oldest works that I still possess, and was originally written when I was a teenager so...be gentle.
Upline (first book of the Radisson Series)
Incarnations: Aslau (co-written with Carissa Starr and included in the Incarnations series)
Projects on the table:
However, taking any of my material and attempting to publish or claim it as your own WILL be met with force. I may be a bit forgiving but outright copywrite infringment against my intellectual material will not be tolerated.
/tangent. Anyway, As you can see, there are quite a lot of them (note...this does not generally include my collaborative work with other writers! One or two titles here are, however, collaborative...most notably the Oakfallow Series and Heart of the World):
11 Minutes (undergoing final proofing)
Unnamed sequel (in progress)
Two additional titles planned, currently unnamed
Dragon Saint Series:
A Tale of Bethany
The Immortal War
Pale Hand (possible) Series:
Willem (working title, fantasy novel)
Vhantalya (going through final edits)
Rose of Fire
Cauldron of the World
The Blood de Valint
The Fool King
Heart of the World
Downline (in progress)
The Legend of Oakfallow (undergoing extensive rewrite)
The Haunting of Dark Abbey Hall
Non-Series books planned:
Scarlett (may end up part of the Incarnations series)
Ferry Tails and Witches
I will of course add to these lists as new ideas come to me or as things are finished/reworked/I dig out some of my old projects and go 'oh yeah, forgot about this one'.
My goals are to work on my fanfic during the week and my original fic on the weekends...a feat that will now be possible thanks to my shiny new laptop.
Thank you for reading, and enjoy!
