Fruits of Labor
Each of us has one talent we excel at above all others. it is my belief that it is an innate gift given to us by God to help get us through life. Perhaps we have always possessed it, even before mortality. This is not to say each of us is unable to develop our own abilities, but natural ability seems to play a large part in helping to define our character.
For me, the ability to write has long been considered by many my inate talent. Perhaps this is true. In any case, to me, writing is a means by which I may give life to the thoughts that swim deep in the recesses of this brain of mine. It is something I love, and something I would love to do for a career one day.
This portion of my site is dedicated to showcasing some of the fruits of my creative muse. Some is fiction, some most definately reality.
What are dreams? Some consider them the unrestrained release of our inner conscious desires. Others believe they are merely the mindless firing of nurons without conscious thought to guide them.

And what if one had the innate ability to dream with such lucidity that there becomes no differentiation between our waking world and the world of their dreams? Read more

In 2084, our world parished. Ninety percent of humanity died along with it. Five hundred years later, the remnant has been migrated to a celestial body known as Pantheus - a world as similar to earth as it is different. Nobody remembers the old world, nor the events which forced them to be taken beyond the known universe. Some speculate an invasion which drove humanity to abandon their world. others believe a great cataclysm wrot by their ancestors forced the old Gods to attempt to save the few humans who were left.
It has been five hundred years since then, and Humanity is at peace on Pantheus with the world's custodians, the Cyrom. But deep beneath an island set apart from the world, a molevolent entity stirrs restlessly, and one young man is about to see the end of everything he ever believed in.Read more

Love is a force greater than any other. Reason and logic are cast aside in its need to be brought into being. Hate, though potent, inevitably pales in comparison to this force so overwhelming, some would give their very lives to have it. It is a potent drug which has the power to render other aspects of life meaningless. But what happens when lovers part while one is still attached? What are the lengths we will go to keep the one we love. Some would kill to save the one they love. But what happens when one would kill to keep the one they love from leaving?Read more
