    I'm an author who loves to talk to my characters. By that, I mean sit down, take out a piece of paper and have a conversation with them. Am I strange? Yup. But that's what makes me good.

    Don't take me for arrogant. I'm merely stating the facts. I'm a stickler for grammatical errors, particularly punctuation, unless it's done for a stylistic purpose. Spelling errors also get on my last nerve, and if it's the same one over and over again, then you'll be receiving a private message from me rather quickly.

    In the few face-to-face writing groups I've been apart of, my writing has been critiqued rather lightly. I take pride in my characters, and in my style. I do have a tendency to over use hyphens, commas, and ellipses, but you bet that I'm working on it.

    Usually I write multiple stories at once. I've been working on one story for around two years, and I'm rewriting it almost constantly. You might call me a perfectionist, but until I get this story perfect, I'm not even going to dare showing it to a publisher.

    I LOVE to edit stories, or beta them, whatever you youngersters call it these days. Send me one my way any day. While I do offer constructive criticism, I'm always careful not to be too harsh, unless something really bugs me. Otherwise, you can rest assured knowing your writing is in good hands.

    Although I'm not very good at editing horror or erotica. So it might be better to find someone else for those.

    Writing, gaming, band


    The easy, fast-paced road to publication: two hours of sleep a night, and lots and lots of coffee.
