Author has written 17 stories for Myst/Riven, Baldur's Gate, White Wolf, Realmz, Silmarillion, Legacy of Kain, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Elder Scroll series.

I am, undoubtedly, a lost cause and a total thrall to anything BioWare.

Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn (and its subsequent expansion, Throne of Bhaal) remains my favorite game of all time. Eventually, I will finish/edit Anomen's post-game adventures in Maztica.

I am an avid supporter of the Qunari. If that's not clear enough by my DA2 post-game fanfic, Following Fate, my Tumblr feed (qunrapah) should supply any remaining proof. I regret nothing.

Outside of fandom, I'm a Pennsylvania Yankee recently moved to Florida with nothing but my passion for life and change and a borderline-useless Classical Civilization degree. Even having lived in Wales was never such a culture shock. Eventually, I'll finish that dissertation on the evolution of the hero...but I'm having way too much fun writing fiction to pay it much notice. Sorry, MA. Priorities.
