My primary interests are playing, writing and writing about text adventures or parser-based interactive fiction. In the past, I have ported many text adventures from various dialects of BASIC or translated foreign-language adventures to English, especially type-ins from books and computer magazines.
Nowadays, my adventure authoring language of choice is Inform 6, but I also like dabbling with Adventuron. My early adventures on itch.io were prototyped in Inform 6, then ported to Adventuron. The later ones are just written in Inform 6.
Warning: These are all old-school, puzzle-based text adventures. If you just want to sit down and read a story, these aren't for you. If you enjoy exploration and solving puzzles, you will enjoy these games. They're not necessarily easy, but they're lots of fun.

The Witch's Apprentice: You play the part of a young girl who is about to start her apprenticeship on Halloween and your first task is to find the ingredients for a magic potion.
Igor's Quest: You play the part of a somewhat dim-witted hunchback, who has to find body parts for Doctor Frankenstein's monster. The game is restricted to two-word input, descriptions and responses, and relies heavily on word play.
Charlie the Chimp: You play the part of a chimpanzee who is trying to return to his home in the chimpanzee enclosure.
