This is a list of stories I've written in the past. When I studied with Writer's Digest School and the Institute of Children's Literature during the first half of the 1990s, I wrote several stories for assignments. I also wrote one adult story for a writer's workshop I participated in during that time. On this page, I am posting those stories, as well as links to fanfiction stories that I have since written. Enjoy! (I also have most of my fanfiction stories posted on, and I have since also posted all of them on Archive of Our Own.)

For Someone Besides Himself

What happened to the creatures in Chapter 11: “Aslan is Nearer,” that the White Witch turned into stone statues when she discovered that Father Christmas had given them the means to celebrate? C.S. Lewis never explained in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I’d like to think that Aslan found about it and did something. This little one-shot, which is set in Chapter 17: “The Hunting of the White Stag,” explains how that could have happened.
