    My stories are born from my deepest emotions, bubbling to the surface when they demand to be released. The subjects I pursue are as varied as my interests, and I love to explore different genres. Some of my work is dark, some of it is light-hearted, but I never write the same story twice.

  1. Musings of a Mongoose

    By Cynus, in Poetry. 01/02/2016 (Updated: 06/11/2020)

    This will be a collection for most of my poetry. Hope you'll find it appealing. Some of it will be Mature, so pay attention to the chapter notes.

  2. Breaking The Illusions - An Autobiography

    By Cynus, in Non-Fiction. 01/08/2020 (Updated: 01/11/2020)

    This story is autobiographical in nature, but I have made some modifications to protect the identities of those included in it. All the names have been changed, and in some cases things such as gender, locations, and sometimes familial compositions have been altered.

    All that being said, this is MY truth, and it's time I released it so that I'm free to create from a place other than brokenness and sadness.

    This will be dark, but there are spots of light in the great black. No void is truly empty when one gazes into it. The light from our eyes illuminates more than we realize.

    "Tragic Genius" is the fourth and penultimate book in "The Trial", a series beginning with "Shadow Honor". In this book, we follow the early days of the Demon War, and focus on the stories of Neredos and Veil predominantly, but with many other familiar faces as well.

This is the heart of what The Trial means.
