Author has written 5 stories for Dragon Age.
YOU HAVE MY THANKS...for reading the I Shall Endure series. I always grin when I see hits on the completed stories. Thanks for reviews of those.
Hope you will join Lys and Ali in Book 3.
Thanks to maeves-child for her lovely portrait of Lys at 20 just before the events of the game which I use as my Avatar and as the cover image for Book 3. A younger, happier Lys appears as the cover image for I Shall Endure Book 2: In Plain Sight - Lys by Charlotte/Iheartapostates. Chenria created the lovely cover image for I Shall Endure Book 1: Brief Shining Moments. My kids at 10 on the tower in Redcliffe. Thanks to these three ridiculously awesome artists.

MY STORIES: Melysande is my f/HumanNoble OC. When I began writing a post-Blight story about her, I spent more time creating her backstory. I accumulated more and more headcanon and the pre-blight and Blight stories began to write themselves. Although I do include major canon events, the stories are canon divergent. I hope to continue Melysande’s story into the Thaw and beyond, but I’ll stick to
The divergent stories explore Melysande's character development and her relationships with friends (some from the game & some I make up), family and particularly Alistair and Loghain.
I am an unabashed Alistair fan, at least the Alistair of my imagination. Loghain, however, may be the most intriguing character in the DAO universe and I'm a fan of his as well. I actually - confession time - have his action figure staring at me as I write. Talk about muses. My stories explore both characters and their relationship with each other and my f/Cousland.

ABOUT ME: I'm a retired Project Manager, who now has the time to indulge old interests and try new ones. I've always thought of 'what ifs' and 'whys' as I read or gamed. This is my first foray into actually putting the thoughts into words on the page/screen and weaving the 'what if' & why threads into a story.
I'll read almost anything, even the OED, but I love fantasy (LOTR, Kate Elliot, GRR Martin, etc.), Sci/Fi (Dune, Bradbury, Hyperion, etc.) and the nexus where they overlap. I read lots of history - especially medieval Wales, England and Scotland and historical fiction (Dorothy Dunnett, S.K.Penman, Bernard Cornwell, Mary Stewart, Mary Renault, etc.) and the occasional mystery. I'm also a fiber fanatic - I weave, spin, and knit. I love getting outside to enjoy the four seasons we experience every year in northern New England
