"My doctor says that I have a malformed public-duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fibre," Ford muttered to himself, "and that I am therefore excused from saving Universes." I fancy myself a mildly passable writer. I love books of all sorts, with a heavy emphasis on the horror and fantasy sort of novels. Some of my favorite authors are Bentley Little, Brian Lumley, Stephen King, Brian Jacques, Heath Pfaff, Terry Pratchett, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Howard, Richard A. Knaak, Isaac Asimov, Phillip K. Dick, Roger Zelazny, and Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman. I am married to a wonder man with an immense talent for writing, and I have two dogs and a cat.
