From the time I first began reading, mine has always been a mind brimming with ideas and images. As far back as books like "Arrow to the Sun" and "Greedy Zebra" I've been an avid reader. Living in the country and being limited to 6 local channels provided me with a narrow scope of animation, though, but I did not go entirely without.   The Golden Age of the 90's yielded much of the most memorable and iconic animated series ever created. Some of my early favorites included King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, Sailor Moon, Transformers, Pirates of Dark Water, Gargoyles, DCAU, Bots Master, Sky Surfer Strike Force, Conan the Adventurer, SWAT Kats, Voltron: DOTU, and my all time favorite: Ronin Warriors.   As a writer I attribute my style and inspiration heavily to two main authors: Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels for their vivid descriptions that insert you into the world, and J.R.R. Tolkien for the vast history and lore of his epic works. Other influences include Louis L'Amour for his immersive westerns and Larry Niven's epic Man/Kzin Wars universe.   As a person I am friendly to those who have earned it, and very emphatic, although I am primarily introverted. My vanguard character, Tanya Sanada, is loosely based on those traits. My main works include what I call the Age of Defiance universe. I write in the vein of 90's animated series of old that were primarily marketed to kids but could be appreciated and enjoyed by adults and convey weighty subjects with an equal measure of levity and epic scope to boot.   I've been writing for over twenty years since the tail end of the 90's. The bulk of my current writing can be found at   I plan on eventually hosting chapters here but that is on the back burner for the time being.   I avoid social media like the plague. I have Steam and Discord profiles but will only give those out to people I can trust.   I do not do collaborations anymore so do not ask.
