I've always been thinking of stories for as long as I've been alive. I have way, way, way too many to tell and far too little time to tell them.

I joined UFOP: Starbase 118, a Star Trek roleplay-by-emails group, in 2010 and it was there where I learned my craft. But despite being one of the more active writers in the group and simming to my heart's content, I still couldn't tell all the stories I wanted to. It was only in 2011 that I actually started shaping and weaving those random, jumbling, chaotic masses of thoughts into coherent narratives and began self-publishing.

Writing's my full time job now. I write a little science fiction, a little fantasy, a little humour and comedy, and a few other things all over the place.

by David Adams
It's 2037. I'm Mike Williams, but you can call me 'Magnet'. Everyone else does. It's short for 'Chick Magnet', which is good old-fashioned military humour at its finest. At age fifteen, my face picked a fight with the propeller of my family's boat, on a shoal near Broome, off Western Australia. It was an accident, but, needless to say...

New Fleece on Life: A Silo Story & Lacuna Crossover
by David Adams
One day, on Kboards, I started a Lacuna / Wool crossover as a joke. It was literally a few lines thrown together from the top of my head and a poorly photoshopped cover. It was one of many joke threads and I had no idea where it was going. The readers--including Hugh himself--wanted more, so I posted more. And they kept wanting more....

Who Will Save Supergirl?

They are often created as a blank slate: possessing only superficial physical attributes so that we, the reader, can insert ourselves in their place. They are just as outlandish as...

Sacrifice (Kobolds)

Before the Godsdeath we had power. Dragons commanded the arcane and the divine equally. We could have raised our stillborn eggs to life.

We were, however, both dragons;...
