As I grew older, I put the action figures away and moved into the realm of role playing. Though I never outgrew role playing, I certainly don't have the time for it anymore.

While I might embellish in further drafts, usually everything I write early on makes it into the final draft one way or another.(less)

Maybe I shouldn't be admitting this publicly, but I don't really consider myself a zombie fanatic.
