Ian Hutson:

My name is Ian Hutson. I don't know why, it just always has been. I was abandoned by both of my parents immediately after conception and I was raised by wild sheep, although I am a man cub. Medically, I have one kidney on the left and also another one on the right. Because I am very old this means that I pee a lot and sometimes smell of man-wee. When I type I use seven of my nine hand-fingers and the English Human language. It's mostly blathering nonsense and stuff. I have never yet been convicted of murder, assault or even serious stalking. I have a congenitally small site at but so far I've only found it on the interwebbing. Some day I hope to work hard, cheat Death and become a bronzed Roman god.

Tegon Maus writes:

'Dearheart, my wife of forty three years and I live in Cherry Valley, a little town of 8,200 in Southern California. In that time, I've built a successful remodeling /contracting business. But that's just my day job... everyone that writes, everyone who tells you how to write, all say the same thing... Write about what you know and what I know is me.
Well, at least the me I see when I write... a protagonist frequently wedged between a rock and a hard place but manages to work things out at the last minute after all.
Like most of us when pushed into a corner it only brings out the best in us and we become the unstoppable force of a reluctant hero. If I have a signature style for creating a character then this is it.'
