Author has written 100 stories for Dragon Ball Z, Samurai 7, Legend of the Five Rings, Kiddy Grade, Vampire Hunter D, Spiral, Trinity Blood, Last Samurai, Princess Tutu, Babylon 5, Basilisk, Harry Potter, City of Heroes, and Fruits Basket.
The following is a public service announcement for people who read my stories.
If you start reading something of mine you DO NOT like, please STOP READING IT.
As in IMMEDIATELY.
As in CLOSE THE BROWSER WINDOW AND STOP READING.
In fact, kindly go so far as to NEVER OPEN ANYTHING OF MINE AGAIN IN YOUR LIFETIME. Trust me, in the end, you will thank me.
You are no under no legal, moral, ethical, or even sadistic obligation to finish reading something you don't like. Free will exists for a reason, so unless you're either a) fantastically stupid, b) horrendously weak-willed, c) a glutton for punishment, or d) all of the above, STOP READING. Life is too short to waste. So if you place ANY value whatsoever on your time, if you catch yourself hating my work as you read, I freely give you permission to stop reading that very instant. Don't leave a review, don't push on 'in the hopes that it will get better' - if you don't like what you've read so far, chances are, in your opinion, it won't get better. And if it's one of my larger works on which others are based (such as 'Sword of the Soul' for SAMURAI 7 or 'Unexpected Results' for TRINITY BLOOD), don't read the secondary works that relate to these stories, either. Just move on and find another author to read.
This has been a public service announcement.

A bit about myself for the curious and idly bored.
Born: April, 1974 (Aries/Wood Tiger). I'm 41 at the moment, but my parents describe me as "younger than I look, older than I act."
Published: Yes. Several articles in a few magazines, and poetry in anthologies.
Alma Mater: University of Arizona. Double bachelor's degrees in Creative Writing and Classics, Masters degree in Sign Language Studies/Deaf Literacy.
Random Weird Fact about Me: I'm on 131 Favorites and 80 Author Alerts, and my most popular story far and away appears to be The Sword of the Soul (which is now complete), followed VERY closely by Unexpected Results (which is also now complete)!
What I Am Listening To Right Now: "Locking Up the Sun", by Poets of the Fall.
Favorite authors: In no particular order... Jim Butcher, David Morrell, Katherine Neville, Kathryn Lynn Davis, Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, all the Doctor Who New Adventures novelists, Kerr Cuhulain, the Legend of the Five Rings writers, Laura Joh Rowland, Adrienne Rich, P.N. Elrod, among others. The list is long and varied.
Current story being worked on: After finishing my fourth fandom novel (CITY OF HEROES: THE COURSE OF SUPERHERO ROMANCE), I started work on its sequels.
