Go to the new site, folks!

This site is no longer being updated, and is irregularly maintained.┬áThere’s nothing here that isn’t elsewhere except some of the shorts, and even those are going to be moved elsewhere. So I strongly recommend that you head on over to my official writing site at:

Prysmcat Books

for all current and future news about what I’m writing and what’s available where.

Thanks for being interested!

Eventually this site will be taken down and I’ll repurpose the domain for something different, so get the new link now, okay? :-)

Welcome and About

As most people who know me for any length of time quickly discover, I write. Most don’t know how intensely I get absorbed in it, how real it becomes to me while I’m in the middle of it… or the wrenching feeling when I have to walk away from it and go back to the everyday world.

I write novel-length fiction. I occasionally write short fiction, and the presentable examples are available here as well. I write first and foremost for my own amusement, just to see what will happen if I put characters in a given situation, and then switch the roles around and see how that influences the outcome, which is usually quite a lot. I have worlds of my own I visit to explore, learn, practice, and escape.

As of 2014, I’ve begun to move into indie publishing, which has involved revisiting several works I had considered complete and doing greater or lesser levels of revision. My official writing site is at prysmcat.com, where you can find my published novels. I have deliberately chosen to keep prices minimal, because I’m more interested in finding an audience to share my worlds with than I am in making money from it. I strongly suspect that an attempt at turning what I love into a career would lead to a career doing something I used to love but now resented.

Under Novels, you can find a list of my longer works, both published and undergoing revision. Misc. Shorts has a detailed list of the various short works I’ve done, though be aware, a number of them are outright erotica. Moonblood is an experiment in serialized fiction. Gaia is my personal playground world, and I’ve done a little polishing on the first part of it to make it available here. My Writing blog is updated rather sporadically, as I tend to get distracted by actual writing or by real-life events. My Official Author Site has info on my indie-published work, among other things, and is maintained more regularly than this one.

When I’m not writing, I’m making cat toys, volunteering with a local TNVR organization, maintaining a lolanimals site for my friends, serving my three feline overlords, and now and then, eating and sleeping.
