I began writing about three years ago. To date, I have finished one novel (100,000 + words, the first in a trilogy), two novellas (20,000 + words) and more short stories and poems than I can count.

I have an unhealthy love for grammar and proper English.

You can also find me on fictionpress: www.fictionpress.com/~bitterirony. My profile there contains links other poems and short stories of mine scattered across cyberspace.

A revised version of my poem "Red on Gold" was recently accepted for Word Salad: http://www.wsmagazine.net/2007Poems/RedonGold.html

For everyone wondering where my short stories have gone: "A Choice of Treason" has been accepted for the winter issue of the Rose and Thorn e-zine. http://www.theroseandthornezine.com/Winter07/Treason.html "The Countess" is running in the July issue of "A Long Story Short": http://www.alongstoryshort.net/TheCountess.html

Good luck on your own work!
