Author has written 28 stories for Merlin, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and Avengers.

I'm a huge fan of fantasy and historical fiction. At the moment, my main interests are The Musketeers, The Avengers/Marvel movies, BBC's Merlin, traditional Arthurian legend, Game of Thrones, the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and Harry Potter. Beyond writing, I also devote a lot of my time to graphics and web design, and run a Merlin community called The Heart of Camelot.

Life keeps me pretty busy, but I do my best to post new chapters of my stories as regularly as possible, ideally on a weekly or biweekly schedule for each. More importantly, I'll never leave any story unfinished. Reviews are amazing and I'm always indescribably happy to receive them, but even if you don't choose to leave feedback, thank you so much for taking the time to read my work. :)

Credits: Covers for Annwyl Gyfaill, Breaking the Spell, Evergreen, Lancelot of the Lake, The Deep Well of Desire, and The Lyrics and Melodies Collection created by Wil1969. Cover for Clandestine created by Abby. All others designed by me.

Obscura Nox Animae reviews
The entire Wizarding world believes Lily Potter was murdered by Voldemort on that fateful night in 1981, including the man who would've given his immortal soul to save her. But there's another side to the legend of Lily's sacrifice... ancient charms and secret truths that may very well have the power to change everything.

The Masquerade reviews
Deep in the heart of Camelot, a powerful deception is woven by a man who's just a little too good at keeping secrets. An alternative to Episode 2x03, in which Merlin decides to take matters into his own hands rather than sending Morgana off to the Druids to learn the truth about her magic.

The Deep Well of Desire reviews
Druid lore speaks of an ancient spring that lies deep within the recesses of the Darkling Wood, where any man or woman who drinks from its waters will be granted a vision of their heart's deepest desire.
