About the Author
I self-identify as a billionaire playboy philanthropist writer, but really I'm just a straight white guy who struggles with a disability most don't understand because it's invisible. Ah well. I have big plans, like most villains. Like a certain dwarf, I drink and I know things. And I watch WAY too many movies. But, like, only good ones or ones that I *hope* are good ones. Cause who wants to waste money on a movie they don't enjoy? Not me, certainly. I hope you enjoy my writing.
