I haven't done much of anything, that anyone could track down. It took me pretty much the first thirty years of my life to figure out I'm drawn to character/world/story creation, so I'm currently writing my first novel (Tempax is based on the novel's world, actually), which hopefully will be published at least a little somewhere.   I tend to get easily distracted, writing about whatever aspect of a given plot or setting most recently incited my passion, but I promise there are larger plans still there for all of it!

Interests & Hobbies

Obviously, world-building. Anything involving a story with characters I can relate to, especially if there is the possibility of seeing them emote deep sorrow or pain... gets me right in the feels.

Favorite Movies

Anything super-powered, mutated, cast down from heaven, or otherwise fantastical... with a special place for creature features. I don't try to defend them, I just enjoy them.

Favorite TV Series

As with movies. Particular callouts include: The Irregular at Magic High, Fullmetal Alchemist(both series), Bleach(although the filler arcs bother me, even though they're very well done), The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (recent addition)... this list could get rather long as well.

Favorite Books

The Dresden Files (although I picked them up out of order, I'm addicted) by Jim Butcher, and Simon R. Green's tales from The Darkside series (also read out of order). Holding a special place in my heart, however, are the Wheel of Time series, followed closely by the novels following Drizzt Do'urden.

Favorite Writers

Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, R. A. Salvatore, Braham Stoker... I feel like there'll be a character limit if I continue.

Favorite Games

World of Warcraft (love/hate relationship), Kingdoms of Amalur, Dark Souls (because I love to torture myself, I suppose), some Final Fantasy installments (but definitely not all)... This will be a long list if I have to try to pick some ahead of others.
