What I Usually Write In: I'll probably be mostly writing stories to do with the TV show Hey Arnold, the games Grand Theft Auto, Fallout, Max Payne, and Hitman, or the anime Cowboy Bebop.

Genres: I try to be pretty diverse, genre wise, so expect a lot of different stuff from me.

What I Read : This changes like the seasons. I have a sentimental weakness for romance, so most of the stuff I read will concern that. I also love crime stories, so those, too. If you have a story along those lines that you'd think I'd like, feel free to link it to me and I'll read it and drop a review.
