I'm 36 years old, Christian and an avid lover of reading and writing. I've been doing both for as long back as I can remember.

My first book, Ice Warriors: Key of Midgard was self-published through Amazon and can be purchased through all the versions of said site.

The current novel I'm working on is Blood War, a young adult dystopian horror.

'Fear Street meets The Purge.'

It started with the blood sickness.

On the first day and the first hour of the New Year, nearly half of the population threw up blood. And others began crying blood.

And so began the first recorded bloodbath. Murderers and victims. Five hundred years of serial killers and those they prey on. And the third group, the bystanders, only able to stand by as violence rips through their society.

Murderers and victims. And the bystanders who let it happen. It's the way of life, here in Red View.

If only they knew why....

For anyone who might be interested in following my writing progress, you can do so on my Facebook Group, which can be found here.

Storygames

Final Quest
unpublished

A fantasy adventure wherein you play Esther, a warrior in the King's army.

When the King is poisoned, it falls to you to seek out a cure for him. But with no idea of who in the court or the army you can trust, every step you take could be the wrong one. And that's not counting the dangers you will face on your quest.


Krypton's Child
unpublished

(Written for my niece).

You play Ciara, the daughter of Astrid from DC's Supergirl series. When an AI wakes you from stasis, you find yourself stuck on Earth as the child of a major supervillain and a woman unsure of what side she's on....


Let Me Out
unpublished

You play Courtney Addams, a teenager with budding psychic abilities who's just moved to the town of Budding Shadows with your parents and siblings.

Uprooted from everything you knew before and tormented by strange dreams, you can't shake the feeling that something is very wrong.


Missing. Presumed Dead
unpublished

On your computer late at night, you suddenly receive a message notification from your friend Abigail.

But Abigail's been missing for months. Presumed dead. Is it a prank? Is someone playing games with you? Or maybe, just maybe, you'll finally get those answers you've been searching for.


New Year's Massacre
unpublished

The Carnell's New Year's Party is the event of the year. If you want to get anywhere in Red View, the Carnell family is your way in. And what better way to rub elbows with the most influential family than by attending their biggest social event?

As Thaya Mendez, the last thing you want is to go to yet another boring New Year's Party. But you've promised your brother you'll keep him from making a fool of himself in front of his crush, Kel Carnell. And so you attend.

But no one could have predicted the blood sickness. No one could have predicted that residents of Red View would turn on each other. No one predicted that some would be murderers; some would be victims; and some would just be the bystanders who stand by and let it happen.

And now you have to get out alive.


Out of Darkness
unpublished

Reaching Safe Haven
unpublished

You play Bailey, a teenager infected with the Flare virus and who became a Crank. Left with others of your kind to 'guard' the entrance to the city, you were the only one who was able to regain a fraction of humanity and leave when your peace was disturbed by a group of people trying to break into the city. But by the time you reach there, the virus is clawing at the edge of your sanity. Smoke and flames are everywhere. Nowhere is safe....

(Starts off as a zombie story. Turns into more of a dating sim).


Times of Survival
unpublished

You play Savannah, a college student in Central City. On what seems to be a normal day, someone tries to kill you....

Looking for help and encouragement on 5/31/2022 9:54:35 AM

It's really no secret that I'm incredibly bad at finishing things. Procrastinating is far too easy for me. And I get bored with things far too easily. So I figure that if I'm to have any hope of actually finishing something, I need a bit of 'nagging'.

The storygame I'm currently working on is going to be a prequel to an original novel I'm also working on, the details of which can be found on my profile. The storygame itself will be titled 'New Year's Massacre' and here is the (current) blurb for it. It may change.

The Carnell's New Year's Party is the event of the year. If you want to get anywhere in Red View, the Carnell family is your way in. And what better way to rub elbows with the most influential family than by attending their biggest social event?

As Thaya Mendez, the last thing you want is to go to yet another boring New Year's Party. But you've promised your brother you'll keep him from making a fool of himself in front of his crush, Kel Carnell. And so you attend.

But no one could have predicted the blood sickness. No one could have predicted that residents of Red View would turn on each other. No one predicted that some would be murderers; some would be victims; and some would just be the bystanders who stand by and let it happen.

And now you have to get out alive.

Like I said. Just the current blurb. I'll probably end up changing it. But thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. would be helpful.

Thanks!


Contest SHAME 7: The Greatest SHAME on Earth! on 6/1/2018 9:45:41 PM

Yeah, I found myself really reluctant to just churn out something when I knew I'd lost inspiration. I'll work on getting more site points by actually finishing and publishing my current works and the next contest I enter, I'll complete something and pull myself out of the pit of SHAME.

Just wondering, though, why are some of the names bolded in the first list? Does that mean anything, or...?


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 5/28/2018 4:28:57 PM

I could do with an extension, if that's at all possible. Managed to fall majorly behind with a lot of things I was trying to do.


Question about dialogue preferences on 4/9/2018 8:42:03 PM

When you're reading/playing a storygame, how much freedom do you prefer when it comes to dialogue? Would you rather pick everything the character you play says? Have more generic responses (i.e. 'witty response', 'sarcastic response', etc.)? Just picking one question or comment to 'trigger' an entire conversation? Something else I haven't mentioned here?


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 4/9/2018 8:28:21 PM

Oh, I've got mine saved on a site - but I'm copying it across to here page by page as I complete one. I read Mizal's comment as people writing it all off-site and then transferring it over once it's all done. Which I did think about doing, but with all of the potential storylines, I'd manage to make myself even more confused than I have already.


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 4/9/2018 7:11:48 PM

Do most people write off-site? I think I'd find that difficult to do, personally. I might write an individual page in Word and then copy and paste, but otherwise, I find it easier to write directly here. Then again, I only recently got back into writing these types of stories.

Is it possible for those who are writing off-site to privately share what they've written with Killa? I'm not sure how that would work, but it might be worth considering.


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 4/9/2018 5:46:23 PM

There may or may not be a bonus check-in at the one month mark

If there is, would it be a case of producing a finished story? Or showing something of a started story? And if it's the latter, how would I go about sharing that?

Thanks.


Ready Player One on 4/3/2018 11:46:12 AM

I personally found the movie quite entertaining to watch, but I did think the romantic elements were forced. And the danger in the OASIS didn't exactly feel real. Plus, I thought The Shining part could have been more subtle.

But the use of Chucky as a weapon made me laugh. 


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 3/23/2018 12:37:22 AM

Awesome, thank you!


Killa's Spring Thing Contest! on 3/22/2018 8:35:51 PM

I can enter, then? I'm fairly sure the idea I got last night is one I can finish in two months. Provided my brain doesn't try to over-complicate things....
