* Sorry, no read requests.
* No translations of my works.

Hi there! I'm Stephen. I write novels, generally within the realms of fantasy. I strive to reflect the diverse beauty of our world within all my stories. This is a safe place, no matter who you are or where you're from. Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of Wattpad, and a huge thanks if you've taken time out of your busy life to read my books. Stop in and say hi, sometime.


A couple Q&A's to get started...

Q: Best way to reach me?
A: I respond best to PM or profile comment - I try to get to comments on my stories, but the sheer number has begun to make it difficult to keep up.

Q: When's THE GALLOWS SAINT updating next?
A: It updates every Tuesday and Friday.
