Author has written 51 stories for Witch Hunter Robin, Trigun, Phantom of the Opera, and Leverage.

I am now a college grad and writing novels hoping to be a published writer. I actually started writing fanfiction years ago which helped inspire me to continue my craft. I have written over six novels one in which I know will be a hit once it is published. I thank everyone who reads my fanfiction, but please don't judge my errors...those were my younger years as a writer. I hope to maybe write a little more once I get done writing my new pieces. I am currently writing an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast...yes I know it has been done, but I hope to change it up. My other piece is a mystery novel which has already been called an adaptation of Phantom of the Opera...love the book so it would only be right that I do an adaptation, but I'll let my readers be the judge of that. Ciao!
