Author has written 4 stories for Labyrinth, Batman Begins/Dark Knight, and Inuyasha.

Oh hai! Thanks for stopping by to get to know me!

Interesting things about me:

1. I'm a journalist. Yes, I am a part of the giant machine known as the vaguely defined "MEDIA." I'm not privy to any agendas or conspiracies as far as I know. I just like finding and telling stories about the people in my community.

2. I knit. A lot. And I'm pretty damn good at it. My current projects tend to be 1920's style hats or lace. But I also had a binge for a while where I designed and knit sweaters based off my favorite fandoms. I have plans for a Harley Quinn inspired jacket.

3. I liked Sherlock Holmes so much that in college, I found a way to involve him in every paper I could. And now I'm a bit of an expert in Spiritualism. Go figure.

4. I was on the debate team in high school, but I never actually debated with anyone in tournaments. I preferred to be the only one talking, so I did stuff like impromptu, oratory, expository, and prose/poetry events. I still don't like getting in arguments, but when I want to make my point, I know how to make it.

5. Sometimes I cough and my copy editor comes out. (Sorry!)

6. I once stood in line for over an hour to personally apologize to Brandon Sanderson for telling him (to his face) that I wouldn't read his fantasy novels. I repented and I must say that Elantris is amazing.

7. When I get stuck writing a story, I like to write by hand. I have filled entire notebooks by hand. What's impressive about this is that I like to write two lines per ruled line. Originally this was so no one could read over my shoulder, but now I do it because I like to have more of the story in front of me on one page.

8. I own a tiny crock pot!


My Stories:

Merripit House: The Dark Daiyokai, an InuYasha novel. Updates Wednesday and Saturdays. 40 chapters planned.

After defeating and sealing his deadliest foe in the Underworld, Sesshomaru spends the next 400 years or so in a deep sleep. When he awakes, not only has the world drastically changed to a human-dominated and yokai-absent place, but some foreign human woman has desecrated his brother's grave and stolen his father's sword.

Jenny Harkness, owner and manager of the investigation agency Merripit House, deals with powerful people on a regular basis. Brilliant, ruthless and arrogant, she has brought many to their knees with naught but a few words. Dealing with a Demon Lord suffering from 'Captain America-itis' is a first for her, though. The solution: hire him.

Soon, Jenny is forcing Sesshomaru to learn English, routinely shooting the goddess of Death in the head, and honoring the UN's demands to please do something about a sudden, worldwide emergence of deadly legendary creatures. Despite burying his past, Sesshomaru is forced to deal with a pair of horrors that refuse to stay sealed and silent any longer. This time around, though, Merripit House is here to help him take them down.

Is this story a sequel of To Play the Fool? Yes and no. The events of TPtF did happen, but it's not necessary to read that before reading this one. I understand that you might not want to read a 200K word story that has no novel structure in it at all.

To Play the Fool, a Batman Begins/Dark Knight fanfic, is COMPLETE. 50 chapters with a prologue and an epilogue.

Some people are only pretending to be idiots. Secrets are a large part of Bruce Wayne's life. Tex, Gotham's newest vigilante, is quite a bit smarter than she lets on. And Bruce's new secretary, Jenny Harkness, may just be too bright to keep around — or is she exactly what the Dark Knight needs? A generous heaping of action, a smattering of humor, and a dash of unconventional romance.

The Alarm Clock, also a Batman Begins/Dark Knight story, is COMPLETE. Doesn't have anything to do with my other one. I participated in this Last Author Standing contest over at Livejournal, and I was particularly happy with this one. Harvey Dent contemplates how chance played a role in how he met Rachel Dawes just before he dies.

Christmas in the Labyrinth is COMPLETE. Basically, this is the Labyrinth if it took place during Christmas, and if the characters were in a rush to get things done. It's not like I wrote this whole thing in one Sunday evening and posted it as soon as the spell-check told me I was fine... I'm definitely leaving this as it is. It may be removed soon in an effort to remove digital clutter, but it was fun to write this bit of nonsense, so I'll probably leave it be. I don't exactly know yet.
