Author has written 12 stories for Left 4 Dead, Fallout, Dragon Age, Witcher, EVE Online, Final Fantasy VII, BioShock, Misc. Games, Dishonored, and Batman.

What I Like to Write:

Introspective, illustrative stuff, short but dense with ideas. I rarely write brand new, full-length stories for existing worlds, preferring instead to pick a tiny corner of the world and flesh it out into something worth thinking about. I tend to think fan-made stories work best when they're written as companion pieces to the work in the spotlight, rather than something intended to share it.

Or perhaps I'm simply lazy.
