I'm a twenty-two year old writer who hails from south-eastern Canada. Action, adventure, and historical fantasy are my primary genres of interest, although you might say I'm also a bit of a romantic too.

I write primarily for Young Blades, a short-lived, historical-fantasy series that originally aired on PaxTV in 2005. It follows the exploits of a new generation of musketeers, loosely based on Alexandre Dumas' 'd'Artagnan romances' (of which The Three Musketeers is the most famous).

I love anything and everything to do with the musketeers, and as such, it is quite safe to say that YB is my obsession, and nothing delights me more than to meet a fellow fan, or another person at least intrigued by the series because of my stories.

Although I generally write for only one fandom ( Neverwinter Nights/Forgotten Realms being the exception) I am familiar with a variety of different series and am open to reading stories even from even those I'm not familiar with. Thanks to a handful of fellow FanNation denizens, my reading list for other fandoms has been growing, regardless of whether I've even watched or read canon series!

Here are some fandoms I've read for and enjoyed:
Friday Night Lights, Hellboy, Blues Brothers, Magnificent Seven, Battle of the Planets, Gilmore Girls, Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Stargate: Atlantis, Murder Girl, Early Edition, Doctor Who, Chronicles of Narnia, Thunderbirds, Numb3rs, Bones, Criminal Minds, Battlestar Galactica, Flash Gordon, Blade Runner, X-Men: Evolution, Knight Rider, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Emergency!, M*A*S*H, The Greatest American Hero, Inuyasha, Naruto, Alias, Red Dwarf, Fringe, Birds of Prey and really, the list goes on...

If you have a chance to read any of my stories (and I hope you do, they're almost always written with someone unfamiliar with canon in mind) please let me know what you think!

I am also one of the admins for the site, and I promise, I'm quite friendly. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a line via pm in the forums (although I can also be caught by email).

Obscurum by thedaringhattrick (Reviews - 5) starstarstarstarstar
A plot-bunny that bounded into my head after looking at Anna Wa's 100 Fic Prompt List and selecting "break away" as my muse. Original characters for a Forgotten Realms setting.

Red by thedaringhattrick (Reviews - 2) starstarstarstarstar
What happens when your video-game character respawns? Neverwinter Nights: The Hordes of the Underdark had an interesting way of weaving the concept of re-spawning into the storyline. This is an exploration of that concept from the point-of-view of my PC, Dante.

Beginnings and Ends by thedaringhattrick (Reviews - 2) starstarstarstarstar
What exactly happened after the curtain closed on the episode, "Secrets"? This story was written as an introduction to "Young Blades" for those of you unfamiliar with the series, although fans just may find a few surprises too!
