Author has written 23 stories for Boardwalk Empire, Carnivàle, and Velvet Goldmine.

Only recently started writing fic again after over a decade. Boardwalk Empire's Richard Harrow and his as-yet-unseen sister, Emma, are hands-down two of the of the most intriguing characters I've ever encountered and are just begging to be explored further.

Always accepting story ideas, and feedback is appreciated!
