Author has written 24 stories for Ronin Warriors, Sherlock Holmes, and Stargate: Atlantis.
Well, I've been out of the scene for the better part of three years now? I don't know for certain. SH is still something I work on from time to time, but I've taken off an a fandom I never thought I'd actually touch because I didn't think I could do it justice. Well, certain things (NaNoWriMo 2016) have brought to my attention the fact that I can actually make this happen. More importantly, the main character of this new fic that will be posted soon is the ghost of the better half of myself that died 14 years ago.
So, if there's anyone out there still reading this stuff, I apologize for Septenary, Amelioration, and others that may be unfinished. I will come back to them some day, I promise. First, I have a few demons to battle and some other stuff to get out of my head.
If it makes you feel any better, I haven't had a good night's sleep since these new characters took up residence in my asylum. lol
For those who don't know, my muses live in an asylum and the characters come to join the slumber party. They breed plot bunnies in the back yard. So, if I talk crazy, that's because I am. lol
It's amazing how I can go on for hours about this or that, but can't say a thing about myself worth reading. In any case, I'm about as crazy as a person can get and still fit in with civilized society. Since I'm not very good at this, I'm going to let others do the talking for me.
If you are reading this and have any questions...well, that's what PM's are for, right?
Time for some honesty.
When it comes down to it, I am not the most active writer ever. My muses are sadists and my characters are masochists. I rarely get even a single night's sleep when they demand my attention.
I don't write nearly as much as I should. The desire and ability to write was buried with someone I love many years ago, now. My writing was how we met. She was more than a friend, sister, or daughter; she was the better part of me. There are mental and emotional blocks that will likely never be bested in my life. However, for her and all the others, I will spend the rest of my life trying.
Previously, fanfiction was not something I took at all seriously. I have now come to realize just how important fanfiction is, even just as practice, for a writer. For those who have complained that my constructive criticism is uncalled for and unfair in a review due to the fact that I don't have the "guts" to post anything of my own...
Go ahead, my stuff is here too.
I am absolutely terrified that someone will actually read my stuff. I always have been. I am horrified by the idea that I would actually have to face someone that's read my work and think it sucks. So I leave myself as wide-open to criticism as everyone else. As to anyone actually reading it, I plead for some patience and instruction where needed. I am always willing to learn.
Summing up my entire philosophy on life in a few, simple quotes.
"Don't take life too seriously. No one gets out alive." Unknown
"If you must hang...give a coin to the hangman, a jest to the crowd, and make the drop with a smile." B.S.
"When nothing makes sense, I'll fight...believing only in myself." H.Y.
"Bad memories make good angst." H.L.

My deepest apologies to anyone who is currently following this horrendously long fic. It has been put on hold a couple of times due to some RL issues. Then, of course, there's the creation of two trouble children OC's and a joint custody agreement that has all but derailed everything else of late. I promise to have the fic completed and posted well before the June 2013 deadline.
Amelioration Series (I-V)
Currently working on revisions and massive quantities of additions that did not make it into the first draft. And if you think that series is a monster now...
Interludes of Life
Yep, I'm at it again. Got a few short ones, and some longer ones. Don't worry, it's not all I have. They are just me getting my feet wet before I take the big dive into my larger projects; some new, some old. Enjoy!
