Author has written 25 stories for Dungeons and Dragons, Angel, Firefly, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, and Megamind.

A cartoon fanatic from the U.S. who enjoys fanfiction of many types. When it comes to writing, my own fandom obsessions tend to center around the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon of the early 80's, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Megamind.

A sincere "Thank you!" to all who have reviewed my stories! (Either on my review boards, or by writing to me personally.) I truly appreciate the feedback and I'm always glad to hear from readers. (Suggestions, comments, and constructive criticism are welcome!) I hope that any future updates don't disappoint!

And now an apology: To anyone who might be reading my older stories, I am so very sorry. At the time they were uploaded, FF.N had no problem with my formatting. Alas, it seems to have been a fickle friendship because I've noticed recently that some of the section breaks and other random text symbols (which used to be okay) are now a little messed up. I have every intention of fixing it, but that means going through every single fic with a fine-tooth comb. Hopefully the stories are at least readable until I get to do that. Again, sorry if they look a little strange!

2014 UPDATES:
