"Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted. -- Randy Pausch" A little about me. As the judgmental eyes and mad scientist smile in my profile pic leer at you. You cannot escape them. I've been all over the board in my, albeit short, twenty four years on this rock we call earth. When it comes to schooling, nothing sticks. I've tried culinary arts, business, computer science, forensics, and English lit. I've worked as a cook, telecommunications analyst, security guard, clerk and am now a technical writer. Jack of all trades master of none and all that. Now that I have a job writing 8 hours a day, I find myself growing and loving the field even more. And so, I've pushed outside of my single minded approach to Blood Crumbs and am trying to expand myself into the protagonize community. Not well, but 'outgoing' is definitely not a trait used to describe me(self-deprecating, however, is) . Baby steps. You can find me: Blood Crumbs: This is Part I and Part II of the book. The final installment, Part III will begin and I plan on having it completed by the end of December. It's a detective novel about a serial killer in a small town in Utah leaving authorities blood from his next victim at each crime scene. Armageddon's Children: My fumbled foray into collaborative works. This is a story idea I've had bouncing around in my head for quite some time. My semi-aversion to sci-fi made me feel inadequate to its telling so I hoped that someone might like the idea and see if they could truly take it to the next level. (Could it be you? I dunno check it out!) Fall of the 2nd Sun: My most recent works. A fantasy novel about the death and rebirth of magic and the rise and fall of men (and women). The fickle hands of fate and the omnipotent rage of gods. You know, the usual stuff. An Epic Story of Mediocrity: <----That link is the first three chapters. They are part of the story, but I decided to expand this one for NaNoWriMo. Sooo HERE is the rest of it. Starting on November 1st. It's NaNo so no copy editing (sorry about the errors) and it comes from continuous writing, but I hope you enjoy it! I'm actually having some fun with it. (Suspension of disbelief required!) READ THIS BEFORE RATING ME! Okay, this might sound weird, but please avoid giving me 5's. If you look at the rating system, 5.0 means perfect. My writing is far from perfect, and while ratings of 5.0 might bring more people to read, I will live with it. I really want to feel that I've earned the score on my works whether that is a 1 or a 4.5...read it and rate it honestly. Like many of us, we're here to learn and grow. I write out of compulsion and will keep doing it whether my work is 0.2 or 4.5. Because that is how I will grow. But honest opinions are the only thing that will let me know how far I really have to go. Anyway, thank you for checking out my profile, and more thanks than can be conjured for those who read Blood Crumbs. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
