Author has written 20 stories for Babylon 5, Harry Potter, Misc. Movies, and Crusade.

Uh, hello!

I'm a fan of many colors. I'm basically posting things here in order to get wider exposure. I tend to write in plain text, and ff.net's formatting is driving me batty, so don't expect me to try and post any more epics. More of my work can be found on my own website. I like reviews and emails. I like them a lot.

"Ode on Shadow and Form" is probably the longest thing I've written to date. The other Babylon 5 pieces here--the short things--were written for the Firing Line challenge, which was a challenge to write a story for each episode. We never got past Season 1, but it was a fantastic exercise. What I never mentioned was that all the pieces I was writing fit into the same continuity: specifically, into the continuity of "Ode on Shadow and Form." So while none of the pieces is a spoiler for any of the others, they all fit together to flesh out the tapestry. Er, in a very specific direction.

The other stories here are pieces I wrote for friends.
