I started writing strangely off poetry at age 15-ish, but had never really gone anywhere with it. I didn't start writing fiction until about 1999. In the beginning, I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted it to be. It was just a couple chapters of a horror-ish story that just kinda started spinning up in my head, and I started writing it down as it showed up. I've kept the first draft for posterity, and every once in a while I go back to look at it to remind myself of how far I've come. And yes, it makes me cringe. Still, it's a good tool to chart growth. I highly recommend it.
I've had several pieces published before:
A serial story - The Model and the Mad Scientist, a story about a weird, punk rock mad scientist who reassembles a model torn apart in a fit of pique by a ravenous werewolf. It came out monthly in a free local DC Goth monthly 'zine The City Morgue, Unfortunately, The City Morgue is no more. I'm reworking it for a future release on its own.
One of my short erotic stories can be found in the anthology Coming Together: In Flux (Sales proceeds and related donations will benefit the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, whose mission is to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right)
Another erotic short story of mine can be found in Sexy Briefs: Tasty Little Tails.
