Because my writing reflects what I was into and what was going through my head during a particular phase in my childhood/pre-teen-hood.

I've worked on about a zillion writing projects in the past five years, but most of them didn't make it past a few pages long before I got bored and moved onto something else, so I'm only going to include projects that I worked on for a couple of months or more, …
