I am a writer, and this topic is my evidence. For over six years now, I have brought my work to these forums and slowly sharpened my skills. To anyone who has pushed me to become better, inspired me to write fantastic tales, or given me any kind of criticism, I want to express my thanks and appreciation. This library is dedicated to you.

Heroes and Shadows: The island of Pariva Nui has recently acquired new Toa protectors, but the island's security is quickly threatened by the arrival of a destructive gang. The Toa Pariva's battles with the forces of evil take them across the world and through time itself. (Heroes and Shadows does not occur in the same universe as any other saga.)
Creation's Requiem: A team of Toa, and the Psycron Islands they defend, must challenge an ancient ex-Great Being and his armies for possession of a Mask of Reality. [Co-Author: Zemouregal]
Creation's Absolution: Continuing the adventures of Requiem's Toa Psycra, they discover a realm sealed away from the universe where failure means the loss of millions of lives. (This saga lacked support from readers and myself, and was decidedly cut short.)
