Every story, tale or memoir
Every saga or romance
Whether true or fabricated
Whether planned or happenstance

Whether sweeping through the ages
Casting centuries aside
Or a hurried, brief recital
Just a thirty minute ride
Whether bright or melancholy
Rough and ready, finely spun
Whether with a thousand players
Or a lonely cast of one

Every story, new or ancient
Bagatelle or work of art
All are tales of human failing
All are tales of love at heart.


I'm a writer. I tell stories. This is the place where I ramble/rant about writing and the telling of stories. It doesn't get much simpler than that.


The sorts of stories I tell tend to veer towards contemporary fantasy with hints of dystopian or historical or urban fantasy thrown in- the key here is fantasy. I write fiction that doesn't really fall into specific categories as far as "Young Adult" and "Adult" fiction is concerned- I like blurring lines and I couldn't classify half my stuff if I tried.


Sit back, enjoy, and drop me a line if you like what you see. Most of the stuff here will be public and out there for you to enjoy, but if you want to be added, I have no problems adding you.
