About Me

"Character is destiny. For the cronic do-gooder, the happy-go-lucky sociopath, the dysfunctional family, under the gun everyone diverts to who they are. We may hunger to map out a new course, but for most of us, the lines have been drawn since we were 5."




Oft times I find it difficult to find the words that I need in order to describe myself. I bare so many manifestations of my own being within the depths of my convoluted soul - harnessing one in order to encompass the whole would be lying to those who take the world at face value.

Perhaps it is difficult to describe myself because myself has yet to be fully formed.

I find myself ever evolving.

I have been writing since I don't remember when, inspired by the great minds of William Blake, Robert Frost, Shakespeare... though much of my story telling is genre, my poetry is free formed - sometimes rhyming, sometimes not. Each piece of writing a baring of the human soul and the inner sanctum of a deeply wounded heart.

I write because I believe that it is what the Powers that Be want me to do with my life. It is my greatest passion, and the written word is how I express those things that I cannot seem to release in any other way. Hurt, dispair, loss, being lost, and sometimes - a very rare sometimes - that inkling of hope. I use my eyes, my heart, my soul to put down into words the things I see... the mistakes I see people making... the mistakes I make. The hate, the hurt, the pain we cause one another, is what I try to capture in my work. And I try to advocate love and change.

I am currently working on a novel, 'Forsaken', which is about hate and hurt, love and redemption. It's scifi/horror, but all my true views beneath the surface. The prologue can be read here, with - perhaps - a few new sample chapters to come.

I'm currently taking a break from a program to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, my life being far too chaotic now to focus on such a demanding subject. I have no intention of abandoning the pursuit indefinitely, but a semester off isn't going to kill me - after all, I am only a year away from obtaining the full degree. I volunteer as a sexual assault victim's advocate, and have been accepted into the open arms of the Trevor Project to soon be working with the troubled youth of the LGBT community. I am certified in Suicide prevention. Volunteering to help others is another great passion.

I won’t ever lie about having it good, but I won't ever say that I've had it the worst... I am in no way that dumb. Or that naive. But the life that I have lived has, up to now, made me who I am. I think I've got a good heart, broken-jaded-scarred-a lil scared, but good. There are some things I want make an impact on... I want, more than anything, be that 'pebble in the pond'.

My inspirations are:
Eliza Dushku
Alyson Hannigan
Amber Benson
Sarah Michelle Gellar
J August Richards
Alyssa Milano
Maya Angelou
H.P. Lovecraft
William Blake
Sarah Waters
Elizabeth Haydon
Giovanni Boccaccio
(More to be named, I’m sure, once I remember them)

I want my work to make a difference.

'I' want make a difference.

And I know that I can.

So, if you're brave enough, and open-minded enough, than please, enter my world.

Read...

Think...

Maybe learn something while you're here.

The more minds I can open...
...the better.

Benvenuti alla bocca dell'inferno!

I believe I was suppose to reviewing a piece of work of yours, but I took a hiatus from here. I am sorry for not finishing, but I would like to finish, because I am back online here. If you still want me to, that is. :) Let me know.

Forgot to say also, your description and work in detail is brilliant. I think if it were to be put to film, it'd be overlooked..not enough screen time and unless the whole thing was voiced over so we know how the character felt, that we wouldn't get to see how each character feels, everything they experience and feel in the moment.

Well then she doesn't need to go back to the quad, right?

Do you think it'll be possible to have time "teleport" them to her apartment, kick her a*s then return her to the quad? Or maybe out of time and space??
