In short

  • This isn't really "about me" per se, but it's just something I'd like to say. Everywhere I turn, there's stories about troubled people with dark pasts, blah, blah, blah. Don't get me wrong, they often make for good stories, but I've read enough of those type of books in my lifetime. If you have a story that doesn't have the whole "troubled past" archetype, but it has a little bit of mystery and/or romance, I can 95% guarantee I'll read it so long as you request it. Cheers and good writing!

    And, please, no poems.

    By the way, I have rewritten my story which is now titled "Christo." Another project has sprung up, and I am (in crude terms) abandoning the project. If anyone would like to add to or even finish, PLEASE let me know. Although I will not finish it, I would really like to see it completed.
