Hi, guys. I'm Cotillion, AKA Doug. I was referred to the site by a good friend who's been inactive for a while. I'm not certain of his username. I'm 19 years old, and I've been writing on and off for about six years. I have a book self-published, which has seen modest success, and a number of my short stories and poems have been published in magazines and online collections. When I'm not writing I like to live outside of my means as an extravagant dater and karaoke aficionado. I'm currently serving my second of six years in the US Navy, studying Mass Communications (photojournalism). I live in North Chicago right now, but my future commitments for the Navy include Maryland, and eventually Japan. At present I write mostly psychological thriller and fantasy shorts. I'll post some stuff around if anyone's interested.
