About Me
Writing is my greatest passion, and spend almost all of my free time engaging in it. I just finished my first novel and am in the process of querying. Besides that, I am a Black Belt and way into martial arts and weapons training, listening to music constantly, loving quality anime and film, reading, practicing traditional longbow archery, reading, weapons collecting and gaming as much as possible - includes a vast array of video games, and Dungeons&Dragons *gasp!* Yes, I play D&D. And reading.
Type of Writer
A novelist, mostly. An OCD one. Although I do love to write short stories as well. Occasionally poetry, though I'm no artist.
Writing Style
I have been told that it is darkly intellectual and conversational, with a lot of shameless intensity and raw wit smeared on.
