Author has written 1 story for Mass Effect.
I am a classical musician based in the United States and Switzerland. To help pay some of the more outrageous bills, I also write professionally for an arts journal. Even though I am restricted to writing non-fiction for the purposes of my work, fiction - particularly sci-fi - has always held a special place in my heart. I have played computer games for a few years now as a means of decompressing, and have found a rich source of writing material in almost every title I've tried.
1/24/13 - Now with beta-reading powers! What has science done?? I'll be accepting a few commissions at a time (PM me if you are interested); just be advised that RL has me in its unmerciful grip at the moment.
For those who may be curious...
