Author has written 8 stories for X-Men.

I'm updating this slightly, but I'm still terrible at this sort of thing.

I'm currently living in northern Germany, though I'm originally from the US.

I just started writing in January of 2012. I've been a fan of Nightcrawler, as well as the X-Men in general, since 1981 -- yes, I know that seriously dates me. I'm an old comic geek and proud of it. :-) It keeps my inner-child alive and well, you know.

I guess I've had story ideas floating around in my head awhile, I just never did anything about them before. The introduction of Kurt Darkholme prompted me to try my hand at writing, as I was trying to understand the differences -- more specifically the reasons for them -- in the original character, and his darker AoA counterpart. It really just went on from there. Several of the things I've written have been at someone else's suggestion -- an idea they wanted to see implemented (like Normal Happenstance was prompted by a discussion on the CBR forum's Nightcrawler appreciation thread), or something someone mentioned they'd like to see explored or expanded on. I write for the fun of it. I like being able to "visit" with characters in such a way. ;-)

I haven't attempted to write with a strong focus on another character, as yet. I guess none have captured my imagination the way Nightcrawler has over the years, though I do include some others in the stories and find them enjoyable to write.

The cover art for Normal Happenstance is a drawing done for me by the multi-talented and wonderfully sweet Marg Hammerman.

Hit the Nail on the Head by CampionSayn reviews
People get to know each other in different ways. Sometimes by talking, sometimes by listening, sometimes by keeping Colossus from going crazy, or by using the Bamfs as drinking buddies. It all really just depends. Bad summary, but I'm not good at that. Mild Kurtty D.

Vignettes in blue by kaktusic reviews
Happy and not-so happy moments of Kurt and his friends we didn't get to see in the comics. So far, Logan, Kitty and Ororo. A bit of a mild spoiler for X-23#1 in second chapter. A lot of blood in the third one, so the squeamish ones...watch out!

Dark Home reviews
This is a story about Mystique (Raven Darkhölme) and her oldest son, Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner). Circumstances as well as very different natures have collectively prevented Raven and Kurt from ever having anything but the most ambiguous of bonds between mother and son, but what happens if it turns out they actually need one another on some level?

Lost reviews
This is a kind of "what if" story about Kurt Wagner and what the bamfs at the JGS might be. It's a partial glimpse into the afterlife and what influence he might still exert over his friends.

Normal Happenstance reviews
This is a "what if" story about Nightcrawler. Because of the way he looked as well as his personality, Kurt Wagner was an X-Man through and through. He didn't have the luxury that other team members did as far as having a life outside of that. What if he had tried to create a secret life apart from the X-Men?
