Generally, my works are being written as I listen to music from many different groups. I'm always happy to discover new ones as music is a good inspiration to me. My favorite genres are Urban Fantasy, classic sword & sorcery fantasy, cyberpunk, science-fiction, fantasy/sci-fi blend. For those interested my main works (ongoing and continuous) are right bellow. They do actually share the same world although point of view and understanding can be very different. My mother recent died in the beginning of December. While I'm not too depressed, motivation has been low. Sorry... Stories in the Nera-Verse - Urban fantasy setting. Axis Mundi: The book of Worlds - A tale about self discovery in the spirit world.

A few things about me I'm a pure-breed French Canadian or Québéçois as we prefer being called around here. My english is entirely self-thought and has tremendously improved in the time since I've joined Protag. I am infact Bisexual. Which means that Homosexuality and other Alternate lifestyle (Polyamory for example) themes may appear in my work. But if you feel uncomfortable with such elements don't read it. Or just grow up, that'll do too. I tend to rant a lot; especially when speaking about spiritual or religious topics. Regardless, I'm one of the more open minded person you'll ever find and will be happy to discuss anything. Religion wise; I'm walking a very fine line between atheism and pantheism. I generally describe myself as a sorcerer and am happy to discuss magic and everything that goes with it with anyone who's interested. I'm Actually Transgender, Male to Female and just beginning my transition. Which is why I've changed my name from Cédric or Kali. (White is the english version of my father's last name.) Random facts Some of my interest include fantasy, science fiction, spirituality, religion, mythology and history. I am also deeply interested in real world magical practice, Tarot, hermeticism, Wicca, Gnosticism. I'm also interested in politic and social issues. Transhumanism is currently one of my big intererest as well as just any type of science behind biology or space ship stories.

Currently Watching/Reading City of Bones Anything transhuman or cyberpunk related Stargate SG-1 Pathfinder Books Iron Druid Chronicles book three Quotes from me "The best sign to show if you've succeded as a writter is when someone write a very dirty fanfic of your stuff." "Even if you write something horrible, it's still good. Because you actually wrote and created something and there's nothing greater or holier than that." "Writting for me is more than just writting words to make an entertaining story. To me, it's putting my essence and soul onto paper."
