Given that I haven't received much interest in my work on this site, I'm taking my stories elsewhere.  I'll leave the rest of the profile for old times sake, but I'll only pop in every once in a while from now on.  Best of luck, everyone.

I am 21 and from Indiana.  I live on a farm and grow corn, beans, and wheat.  I listen to country music, and some older rock bands like AC/DC and Bon Jovi, as well as some epic instrumental music like that from Two Steps From Hell.  Sabaton, Hammerfall, and Within Temptation are pretty good too.  I am a proud Boilermaker, studying Ag Systems Management and Agronomic Business and Marketing, academic speak for equipment management and crops.

I prefer to write science fiction and military stories.  Usually I make them go hand in hand.  I also read and write a large amount of fan fiction.  My usual fandom is Mass Effect, but I wouldn't mind getting into Warhammer 40k if I ever have time.

I enjoy a good book and my current favorite (series) is Honor Harrington by David Weber.

I am in the following Collabs:

None, but that's for the better.  I can't keep myself dedicated to them for some reason.

Complete:

Mass Effect: Shattered Alliance - Sanus Kryik

One Shot, One Kill - Staff Sergeant Jack Carrington
