About the Author

I am a monster. No, not the metaphorical kind. I eat people and I write about it. Your skepticism is duly noted and discarded.

I keep an online record of my life. The reasons are manifold. 1) I am almost certain I am the only chronicler that exists for my race. 2) I am bored. 3) It is an experiment to elucidate a point: your reliance upon fiction has decimated your higher brain functions. I know this because you do not believe.

Do you?

This experiment is real and ongoing and I aim to refine my hypothesis that every myth featuring a monster is merely one instance of humanity distorting the truth of my species. I have multiple social media platforms on which I gather data from the participants, dubbed "gentle readers". I also have an active website and of course, these published materials. I discuss my life, my "crimes" - or as I call them , "dinner" - recipes that I have collected, and I give helpful hints as to how you can use them if you are not a humanitarian like me. Many of them are quite "offal".

I am a terrible writer. I often focus too much on what actually happens, so there is very little "art". I do apologize. I hope it is not too dry, and if you have a literary criticism that can help me make my life more entertaining, I will take it under advisement, though I make no promises. As I have said, it is the embellishment of reality that has gotten us into this situation.
