Ever since I was a little kid I used to fly around my backyard pretending I was a Jedi Warrior or Federation Captain. When I say fly I mean run around pretending I was in a space ship.
Me and my friends used to take wooden rulers and paint and draw elaborate controls on them and these were our joysticks. We had X-wing fighters and USS star ships and we would spend hours exploring alien worlds and getting into dog fights. The good guys always won.
When I got a bit older I started to absorb everything I could about vampires, going through my own goth and vampire stage. I loved how cool they were and how they were sort of like super beings or demi-gods.
Not even werewolves could outfox vampires. These mysterious blood suckers were lurking around every dark corner of night, just waiting to pounce on unsuspecting victims.
And so now I write both science fiction and vampire horror stories because I still can't control my active imagination. I hope you enjoy my humble offerings. You can reach me at sylyntstorme at gmail dot com.

Fast-paced, taut sci-fi story for fans of the genre
The short story, False Gods, is the fourth in the Star Sails sci-fi series, and finds the human crew of the SS Falcon limping home after a terrible beating at the hands of an alien species. They are at an incredibly low point, desperate to return home to re-assess their mission and lick their wounds. Their desperation makes them an irresistible and somewhat easy target for a malevolent being that preys on their deepest beliefs and darkest fears. What price are they willing to pay to get what they want? Because it just might be everything.
False Gods is great sci-fi storytelling with tension, action, and philosophical issues. I am also fascinated by their rather mysterious passenger and really want to know more about his journey and where this series will take him. There is great potential there. I truly hope there will be more stories in this series.
