Author has written 6 stories for Final Fantasy VII.

About me: I've been writing for a long time, and each time I finish something, it's a new learning experience. I write a lot of original fiction, too, and am working various projects that I would love to have published someday. My typical writing genres are fantasy, urban fantasy, post-apocalyptic fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. Having been a professional editor, I also enjoy editing stories (being a beta reader) when I have time, and giving constructive criticism. Hopefully you'll find my work polished, easy to read, and entertaining. I'm very "laid back", friendly, and always looking to make new friends with similar interests. Feel free to check out my journal at Dreamwidth (check the web link above) or just drop me a line and say hello!

About reviews: I love reviews, especially when they are positive and/or constructive. I don't expect too much detail when it comes to reviews though -- just whatever you can spare. If you liked something, let me know! Knowing what elements, themes, or plot twists you like sometimes helps me choose what to write next. Reviews also keep my interest in writing alive and burning. In case you were wondering, flames or useless negativity (like, "You suck!" or "I hate stories about Cloud!") will be ignored.

My fanfic interests: My main fanfiction interest at this time is FF7, but I'm beginning to think about writing for One Piece or Bleach, too. I've also written fanfic for Vampire Hunter D, Everquest, and Star Wars, but most of that is behind me now. My longest fanfic story to date was a FF7 post-Advent Children Cloud/Reno fic called "Aftermath" that weighed in at 50,000+ words, but is too mature for ff.net. One of these days I might rewrite it so that I can lower the rating, but until then you can find it linked on my DW profile.

Other random bits: If a story is marked as complete, that's likely all there is to it. These can range from a 100-word drabble to 500 words to 1000 words or maybe even something ridiculously epic in size. Sometimes though, I just want to write out a short story that leaves a lot to the imagination. So if you're wondering if more installments will be added to a story, check the story status.
