Author has written 5 stories for Kim Possible, and X-Men: The Movie.
Mrs. Riley, my 4th grade teacher, sparked my interest in writing. She compared the words we write with proverbial paintbrushes authors employ to pain masterpieces in our readers' minds and hearts. Her advice was simple, "Write about what your know from your heart, and you'll relate more easily with your readers and hold their interests, making reading your work an enjoyable experience, and not a waste of time". I adopted this same philosophy when writing.
My writings started to receive rave reviews. Personal tragedy broke my spirit stealing my voice. I tried many times to write. the words simply wouldn't come, no matter how hard I tried to force them. Frustrated, I laid down my pen. I vowed I'd never write again. And I didn't for many, many years; nearly 20 years to be exact.
Many cultures repute the Phoenix, as an ancient fire spirit. The Phoenix lives around 500 years and dies. Its body burst into flames. The same Phoenix is reborn afresh from its own ashes, vibrant and full of life again. I drawn a parallel with my own life experience. That's why I initially chose this mystic bird as my avatar.
One tragedy shattered my dreams of becoming an author. Oddly enough, destiny intervened in my circumstances. Another tragedy--my mom's death--helped me regain my voice once again. I learnt, person tragedies need not steal my voice. Tap into that pain, while focusing on life's joyous moments, and let that mindset fuel that words we write on paper. I'll admit, my writing style may be a little rusty. I still hope you can enjoy my stories. I welcome reviews, both positive and criticisms. I believe, how else can my writing style evolve without listening unto my readers.
Even the most gifted authors receive positive and negative reviews. It's part of the business.
I prefer murder, sci-fi, action/thrillers, even fantasy fanfiction. Most writers seem to idolizer their characters. By this, I mean, they seem reluctant to expose these primary characters' flaws. I believe, such dehumanization makes it harder, if not impossible, for readers to relate unto them. Me? I enjoy removing these characters from their proverbial pedestals, balancing their good and bad sides, how he/she struggles to balance the good and evil residing inside us all.
This seems to anger some readers, as attested by one scathing review and several PMs regarding my Blood Runs Deeper Still series. This reader got upset over my 'breaking canon,' associated with my title character's backdrop story and characterization. He felt, Kim Possible could do wrong, as described in my story. What about when she kicked Shego into an already collapsing control tower? She didn't regret her actions, then, taking great pleasure in making her opponent suffer. Later, maybe she did regret what she'd done? Fact is, we're all capable of great compassion or violence, if backed far enough into a tight corner with high enough at stake. That's how I portray my characters, making them more human.
My stories thus far include:

Note: My readers have spoken. And I listened. This series is slated to be totally revamped. Will be doing this shortly after completing Raging Hearts.

Feel free to review my stories or PM me questions/comments. I'll respond no matter how scathing. That's the kind of person I am. LOL! Who knows? You could be right about my work. I'm honest enough to admit the truth.
