Author has written 4 stories for Dragon Age.

I am addicted to Dragon Age and DA fanfiction. I was lucky enough to find a group of very talented writers on the Cheeky Monkeys of Dragon Age forum, many of whom are on my favorite authors list. After watching them have so much fun, I decided I wanted to play too!

Update: The Tyranny of Freedom hasn't been abandoned… just set aside for now as I pursue other writing projects. I hope to return to it some time late in 2014.

And this is what it's been set aside for: A Crow, a Rat, and a Sparrow: Freedom's Shadow co-written with the ridiculously awesome Ventisquear as ShebaVentis.
