Tales List

This page has links to some of my favorite works. I greatly enjoyed writing these and I hope you will enjoy reading them.

Action Figure Diary (2004–present) Updated every Monday.
This is a mixed media project (action figure webcomic and fiction blog). It takes place in a world exactly like ours, except that a toy company has invented living action figures and sells them as pets. Action Figure Diary is the story of what it's like for two married humans and their four action figures to live together. (Based on the characters from Little Plastic Heroes, but it starts from scratch.)

Little Plastic Heroes (2002)
A description and excerpt of my 30-day NaNoWriMo novel. The world of Little Plastic Heroes is almost exactly like ours, except that action figures just happen to be alive. (This story was the basis for Action Figure Diary.)

NaNoWriMo 2002 Diary (2002)
In November 2002, I wrote a 50,000-word novel in 30 days as part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). It was insane and wonderful.

Lesson of the Stolen Web (2002)
Somebody copied and pasted an entire website that I wrote and designed for Seattle Great Date. At my client's request, I defended her copyright.

Too Many Boys (2001)
The fateful night when I met Joe, Tim, Dave, Rob, Jim, and Dean.

Under the Needle (2001)
My maiden voyage into the world of acupuncture.

My Dwarf Kicks Ass (2001)
Why I finally love playing Dungeons & Dragons.
