Biography

I'm late twenties, and have wanted to be an author since I was 12 after reading the Death's Gate series by Weiss and Hickman. I'm currently working on a space opera series, but will branch out into other genres soon. My goal is to be "That lady who writes AWESOME STORIES" rather than "that sci-fi author with the purple haired guys" :3

My work is influenced greatly by anime and manga, and as such I like to give my characters fantastic hair.

The Natan Fleet Show series is generally YA, but has themes for older readers.
Other series I publish here may not be appropriate for younglings and will be marked as such.

So take a gander at my free content and buy some books! Happy reading!

  • Kept (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Blood Lust, novella 1) on May 29, 2011

    This book, and the other two books in the Blood Lust series, walked a careful line between full romance, and full novel. I almost wish Zoe Winters had added more to both the romance and the world's backstory. This series has lots of hints at wonderful and awesome stuff that happened before the novella begins, and her romances are lovely and could easily have had the tension continue for pages and pages. If another 100 pages were added to each book, this series could easily kick Twilight's and Anita Blake's *ss!
  • Haunting Miss Trentwood on May 29, 2011

    Overall, this is an awesome read! I thought the beginning was a little rough, but once I figured out that it was set in Victorian England, the beginning made much more sense to me. But then, this was the first historical romance I've ever read. :) I think my favorite character was the ghost, though Miss Mary was certainly a close second, for how inappropriately wild she was for a Victorian lady.
