Biography

I live in California and have read Jane Austen fan fiction regularly for the past five years. Like us all I’ve found many great stories, and enjoyed many hours of fun as part of the community. I read Pride and Prejudice when I was fifteen, and immediately devoured all of Jane Austen’s books. Also, I read Jane Eyre, and Charlotte Brontë’s other books at about the same time. Since then I’ve looked and looked for books that re-create the wonderful romantic tension in those great classics. Now, I want to create some.

I enjoy reading fan fiction (many types), literary books, and science fiction. I also like anime. In college I studied applied math and economic history. I hope to put a little of what I love about those subjects in my stories, but not so much it is annoying. I am trying to make a living as an author, so please support me if you can, but I do not remove my stories from fanfiction.net, or A Happy Assembly. So if you do not have much money, or do not believe in paying for books, you can find a slightly inferior version of them easily.

I want everything I write to make at least some readers go, ‘wow, that was an unusually good story’. Besides writing excellent fiction, my dream is to convince people to donate to Doctors Without Borders and invest their savings in low cost Vanguard mutual funds. A billion people live with medical care that is in many ways worse than what Jane Austen had access to. You can prevent women from dying young like she did. Future You will have a lot more money if Present You invests in index funds and doesn’t give a financial advisor lots of money. It is very easy to set up an account with Vanguard.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've played with story ideas in my head since I was a teenager - I'd spend hours walking around our yard working through a connected set of fantasy stories then. However, the first time I set out to seriously write a long story was recently, while was forced to spend most of my time sitting due to a nasty cut on the bottom of my foot (wear water shoes when playing at the beach) I decided it was finally time to write something.
