United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

I'm a fiction writer with a focus on Horror, Fantasy, Apocolyptic and Science Fiction. I can write Romance if needed but it is not my favorite subject. I have many short stories already typed up. I have written a pro-life story for a journal called Life Matters Journal and a Christmas story for a book called Christmas Lites. I have recently finished a YA Fantasy novella and am working on a NA Fantasy novel. I would love to be able to sell the novella while I'm working on the novel. I want to have out by the end of the year four books of short stories and possibly the novella.The novel may not be complete until 2016. When I'm not writing I'm studying foreign languages or plants and I use my knowledge from those subjects and add them to my stories. Other writing I have done is for blogs. I sometimes write for a blog named Fluent Language.
