Author has written 18 stories for Sailor Moon, and Once Upon a Time.
Welcome, welcome to my cute little nook. I have a few tricks up my sleeve, though life is progressing slowly away from Sailor Moon. I have a few new stories that will be headlining over the summer months, as well as some super fun drabbles to tack on the end of SoulBound (since seriously, I can't get enough!) I've decided to take the Drunken Mamoru Saga out on a solo trip, simply because I might have like...8 of them in mind. The guy seriously cracks me up!
Why it took me so freaking long to get anything done: So, as I've said in my notes, life just gets hard. I've moved 4 times since starting SoulBound, nearly died (for real, not being dramatic) twice, and literally ended myself up smack dab in the middle of nowheresville. I have to admit, writing has always been an outlet for some serious depression, along with other issues, and it's been a bit of a transition. I know most of the fans who started with the story have moved on, and rightly so. It shouldn't take anyone 10 years to finish a 300 page book, but there you have it.
I have to just say that due to the absolutely glowing reviews certain people have sent me, you literally pull me from the brink more times than I can count. I always feel so inadequate as a writer, especially these days, and reading and re-reading your words of encouragement has put me back on track. I'm so sorry that I lost myself all this time, when I should have been following my passion. I'm so unbelievably grateful for all that you do for me, for all that your reviews will continue to do for me in the future.
I really encourage everyone, and I do mean everyone, to write reviews for those stories that you love. Stories have power to change perception, to shift our understanding of life and the world. Remember that when you give that small act of kindness, the recipient will always be able to look back on that in times of need. Remember that when we all bombard our favorite authors with love and support, not only are we more likely to get more of their writing, we also lift and console another human being.
A little bit about me: I’ve been writing for 20 years now. I wrote my first full length novel at 16, and published my first poetry about then too. Since then, I’ve been nominated 5 years in a row for Poet of the Year by the International Society of Poets, and since then haven’t done much with the medium. Most of my time is spent in pros, and I really tend to push myself to progress as much as possible and develop my own style in each story. As you can see below, I try each genre a little to see if I can pull it off. I've been nominated several times in the fandom, but have never had the guts to stick around to see if I won. Those awards are listed in greater detail below.
On the writing desk: We're nearing the very end of SoulBound, but there's always a little goodies left in the bag. I have some pretty great drabbles that will be tacked on to the end of the book for those looking for fan extras after the epilogue. So far, I've got about 6 going (I know, just write a sequel already, right?) all in the hopes that more and more people will be reading it.
I have two new stories debuting this summer, both completely and totally different from each other in style and presentation. I'm a little crazy excited about how well they're turning out, but we'll have to go through several rounds of editing before they can be released.
Eight Days -the exact amount of time it takes to shatter a world: twice.
Sleeping Death - Diamond has a few tricks up his sleeve for the Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen, but they'll have to fight through his little fun house of horrors to get the prize.
Drunken Mamoru Saga is in full swing, with ideas already in to the global editor for commentary. Since I totally crack myself up, there's really no telling if it's just me until I get some feedback, so hopefully I'll be able to post about every week on that one.
On the Original front:
I have a few originals posted on destinysgateway.com, namely a poem titled ‘The Phoenix’ and also there is the imagery-based short, ‘Persephone’, which you’re welcome to check out if you have some spare time. Link provided here
I've made no secret of the fact that I'm in this to be a professional. Right now, I'm about 400 pages into a full length trilogy that I'm hoping to put out in the next few years.
So that’s what it’s all about right now. Thanks so much for checking out my profile, and please enjoy the works below. If you’re feeling particularly kind, feel free to send me a line. Just fyi, flattery WILL get you almost anywhere with me, and I do requests on which chapter should come out next. Let me know. Love you all, hopefully be hearing from you soon!
