Author has written 7 stories for Mass Effect.

β€œIt's a funny thing about stories. It doesn't feel like you make them up, more like you find them. You type and type and you know you haven't got it yet, because somewhere out there, there's that perfect thing -- the unexpected ending that was always going to happen. That place you've always been heading for, but never expected to go.”
― Steven Moffat

-About Me-

I've been writing since I was twelve, I love it. It's like a lifeblood to me. My Dad opened up the world to me by saying I could be whoever I wanted to be, and that's why I write. To be able to be anyone, do anything.

Playing Mass Effect gave me a whole new perspective on that and I embraced it whole heartedly. The world of Mass Effect is so in depth and so open to vast varieties of interpretation that it seems almost purposely designed for FanFiction writers. So that's what I do, write my world of Mass Effect and live vicariously through the eyes of Commander Kelly Shepard.

I hope you guys enjoy my work.

Currently Working on:

Forged from Ice-From Death to rebirth and on through a new exploration of self through new friends and old. Follows the story of Mass Effect 2
