About this author

Lets see,
I'm introverted, college educated; I like animals, but have no pets.
I study metaphysics, I practice Martial arts and run alot. I design accessories, giftware and other stuff to make a living.
I paint, draw and am currently trying to get used to my new Wacom create tablet.

My favorite food: Sashimi, my favorite desert: Dark Chocolate.

I'm Native American, have a significant other whom is my lifemate and without whom, well, let's just say I really really love him.
Okay, that's about it, oh yeah, I've got a thing for crows...

And I write yaoi, boy's love, m/m romance stories, helps me work out the stuff I struggle with as a result of my weird childhood.

Most of you know I am an artist/designer as well as a writer, and some may know that I am now self-employed because my previous employer 's studio closed, due to the owner's retiring.

After twenty-plus years of employment in design, I've decided to give myself a break and revisit the employment issue in spring of 2016. Meanwhile I've been accepting art commissions and honing my writing chops.

I was utterly charmed by this sparkling slice–of-Japanese-high-school-life story. It read like a Boys Love schoolboy manga crossed with a high school-oriented K-drama, like Dream High. Originally written as a web series, each chapter of this spirited

“Patience is a virtue. I steer clear of those.” Big Deal Prequel: A Kiss for Judas”

“Roots are nice, but a tree can’t run.”
Andrew Vachss, Flood

“There’s a coward and a fool, and both of them are you, My heart is cracked and broken, but yours is frozen through.”
Jay Bell, Something Like Summer

“Hey," Anaxantis protested. "Oh," he added, when the Muktar prince took his member in his mouth. "Oh... that's what you meant by servicing." He laughed softly.

"Aw, aw, teeth, teeth, no teeth," he hissed suddenly.

"Sowwy," Timishi, mumbled with his mouth full. "Towd you it wouldn't je jood.”
Andrew Ashling, The Invisible Chains - Part 3: Bonds of Blood

“My mom says, "Do you know what the AIDS memorial quilt is all about?"
Jump to how much I hate my brother at this moment.
I bought this fabric because I thought it would make a nice panel for Shane," Mom says. "We just ran into some problems with what to sew on it."
Give me amnesia.
Give me new parents.
Your mother didn't want to step on any toes," Dad says. He twists a drumstick off and starts scraping the meat onto a plate. "With gay stuff you have to be so careful since everything means something in secret code. I mean, we didn't want to give people the wrong idea."
My Mom leans over to scoop yams onto my plate, and says, "Your father wanted a black border, but black on a field of blue would mean Shane was excited by leather sex, you know, bondage and discipline, sado and masochism." She says, "Really, those panels are to help the people left behind."
Strangers are going to see us and see Shane's name," my dad says. "We didn't want them thinking things."
The dishes all start their slow clockwise march around the table. The stuffing. The olives. The cranberry sauce. "I wanted pink triangles but all the panels have pink triangles," my mom says. "It's the Nazi symbol for homosexuals." She says,"Your father suggested black triangles, but that would mean Shane was a lesbian. It looks like female pubic hair. The black triangle does."
My father says, "Then I wanted a green border, but it turns out that would mean Shane was a male prostitute."
My mom says, "We almost chose a red border, but that would mean fisting. Brown would mean either scat or rimming, we couldn't figure which."
Yellow," my father says, "means watersports."
A lighter shade of blue," Mom says, "would mean just regular oral sex."
Regular white," my father says, "would mean anal. White could also mean Shane was excited by men wearing underwear." He says, "I can't remember which."
My mother passes me the quilted chicken with the rolls still warm inside.
We're supposed to sit and eat with Shane dead all over the table in front of us.
Finally we just gave up," my mom says, "and I made a nice tablecloth out of the material."
Between the yams and the stuffing, Dad looks down at his plate and says, "Do you know about rimming?"
I know it isn't table talk.
And fisting?" my mom asks.
I say, I know. I don't mention Manus and his vocational porno magazines.
We sit there, all of us around a blue shroud with the turkey more like a big dead baked animal than ever, the stuffing chock full of organs you can still recognize, the heart and gizzard and liver, the gravy thick with cooked fat and blood. The flower centerpiece could be a casket spray.
Would you pass the butter, please?" my mother says. To my father she says, "Do you know what felching is?”
