About Me

Hello, my name is Steph. I’ve been writing and publishing since 1988 and I’ve been in the games industry since 1996. I wrote a little bit more on the About Me page. This is my sometimes-updated website. Enjoy.

It’s a Secret

  • more scotch

    I wrote. So now I sleep. Continue reading

  • engage your mind

    Collab work. I know, it’s been a while, but this is the stuff I love. The secrets in the story. All stories gotta have secrets. Continue reading

  • thumbnails, weekends, and reading

    Did the thumbnail deed for page ten. Will scan tonight and send it along to the esteemed collaborator. My week is somewhat shot due to the impending seminar (Curtis sensei is in town) and other things. So Firebird‘s synopsis is still on hold until my hands become untied and my body decides to stop feeling… Continue reading

  • Thumbnails

    Two more pages of thumbnails with dialog. Finding my stride in this. It’d be nice if I could thumbnail and watch the Daily Show but I suspect that won’t be the case. I’m still stressing over the first three chapters of, well, everything. I think I’m going to be crazy and start the next book… Continue reading

  • pitch perfect

    I’m writing the brief synopsis of Poison as if it were a pitch. What a brilliant idea! Somebody kill me. I wrote a separate pitch for the as-yet-to-be-named comics project, and might I add that while I have no problem coming up with characters and story, NAMING and ENCAPSULATING all that in a concise, catchy… Continue reading

  • dialog

    Done blocking dialog and setting up the first five pages. On to the next five. The next story in the arc is already poking at my head. Grumble. This weekend whould be remarkably unproductive, but them’s the breaks. Continue reading

  • more dialog

    I’m such a damn slacker. One page of dialog. Pshaw. This weekend is going to be busy, I can feel it. Five more thumbnails and a synopsis, though! That’s what I’m after! Continue reading

  • projects and dialog

    On the drive home last night, the entire plot for the historical fantasy unfolded in my brain like a tea leaf doused with hot water. It was at once wonderful and rather frightening, and is causing me to question what my next project will be. On one hand, Poison would be quick to write because… Continue reading

  • shaaaaa

    Sound effects are fun. I prefer comics dialogue that’s short and sweet. Putting my keyboard where my mouth is is proving to be a challenge. I feel like I’m writing pulp poetry. Assassin’s Quest is good, but dear god, does it ever end? It’s not that I don’t enjoy it…it just…it just…keeps going. Continue reading

  • “basement” script

    My thumbnails are not hysterically bad! Dammit! I have to finalize a script now. This is all so weird. Testing tonight. Not my test, the test of others, but I get to dress up in a hakama, so really it’s a win-win situation. Still in a relative lull time. Working on websites. Enjoying the time… Continue reading
