Author has written 7 stories for Fable, Deadpool, and Diablo.

A man once said this about me:

"The heroine reminds me of Marina. She is badass and a demi-goddess and uses a bow to slay lots of bad guys."

Yes. Yes, that is just what I do. And in my spare time, I write stories...often about slaying lots of bad guys. I think it's good to be consistent.

Actually, my specialty is getting inside my favorite characters' heads and seeing what makes them who they are. Motivations, passions, fears, and insights into their psyches are the focus of my stories. (...and slaying lots of bad guys.)

I beta-read for my dear friend, angelacm. If you like my work, please read hers. It is fantastic work, and she is a lovely person! She generally tries to review the works of those who review hers, which I will also be doing.

I also write with her on our joint profile, Albion Girls, which is a whole lot of fun for us--and for you, we hope!

You can find story images and more at my DeviantArt account.

The cover art for A Perfect World is "The Chariot" by the incredibly talented Isriana. Please visit her deviantART page for more of her exceptional artwork!

Update (5.12.2015):

I'm back! I got a new job last year as a writer for an online humor magazine, so I've been swamped in the less-fun kind of writing for months. I finally got the hang of it, though, and I'm going to be updating ALL current stories as often as I can. Your reviews help me decide which stories to work on, so be sure to make yourselves heard! Thanks for sticking with me all this time. :)

UPDATE (6.12.2016)

Back again! The last year or so has been really crazy, and I still have lots to write for my job, but I really want to finish these stories, and eventually write more (Mushi-shi and Akatsuki no Yona will probably be the next ones I do). At the time of this writing, I'm working on Huntress Rising and Deadpool, but I'll work on the Fable titles, as well, if anyone is still reading them (leave a review; make yourself heard!). If this is your first time on this page, welcome! For those of you who've so kindly returned, welcome back. :) Thank you for your continued support.

P.S. I'm rewriting A Perfect World so that the perspective is changed from 1st to 3rd person, in order to better tell the story, so if you've read it, be sure to go back to the beginning when the next chapter is published! I'll put a reminder note with it, just in case. Thanks for your patience! I'd like to thank the people who have reviewed and messaged me since the latest profile update: you guys have really inspired me to make time for this. I couldn't do it without you, my heroes. :)
