Author bio

What can I say about myself, really? I've been writing off and on since I was a kid. My first work ever was a story written in elementary school titled "Ziggy the Alien Slayer". Let's be honest. It was TERRIBLE. The art especially. Which is why I long ago gave up trying to create illustrated stories. In high school, I wrote up a number of works about some people who happened to be gods from another universe ported into our own. They were also pretty bad, not gonna lie. But one of the stories was my work for my AP English class, and it got an A, so there's that. Of course, that's probably partially due to the fact that it was perhaps five times as long as the next person's story. I still remember the look of horror on my classmate's face when the story defied his expectations and the correct sword choice wasn't the humble blade, but the mid-grade weapon because they were all correct, and it was a scan of the person's heart that mattered. He didn't talk to me for a week because he felt I'd ruined it. XD Since then, my most prolific writing has been writing up campaign journals for our Pathfinder campaigns, though I'm currently working on my first real novel - which is tied into our campaign setting in an interesting way and is intended to be a trilogy if I'm happy with the first one. Came here because a buddy told me about the place, read one of the writing prompts he'd messaged me upon awaking and had already storyboarded an entry by the time I was out of the shower and on my way to work.
