I have many handles. My creative writing name is Lucas Maroon. I like to write dark fantasy, sword & sorcery, magical realism, occult fiction, and horror. I have written several short stories, but they need to be edited--some more than others--before I submit them to publishers. Some day I would also like to write novels for various computer game companies such as Blizzard Entertainment and Bio Ware. I know I would have very much competition in that department. I will also first need to get published. I am pretty confident in my writing abilities, but I know that I can still use improvement. I am a firm believer that no one will ever reach perfection. I also believe that no work is ever finished. It can always be improved upon, especially as an author gains in skill. What is published is what I refer to as the most polished version. In May 2008, I graduated from the University of Maine with a BA in English, my concentration being creative writing. I think that going through college helped me because I met some really fantastic teachers that really pushed me to hone my abilities. They were also inspirations to me, and I regard some of them as heroes. I also write for a Goth Blog as Valerian Reign, the name I use in real life. The link to that can be found in my signature. I believe this website will be a great help and I hope to meet some pleasant people and interesting writers.
