From the time he put on Superman pajamas and leapt off a flight of stairs, Wilmar Luna has been captivated by stories of heroes saving the day. As he grew older, his fascination with 90's pop culture, video games, and movies filled his overactive imagination with fantastical worlds and legendary heroes.

He found an outlet for his creativity by studying video editing and motion graphics design at Mercer County Community College. After graduating in 2008, he freelanced throughout New York City and has edited numerous indie films, freelanced for the NFL, and also worked with the cinematics team at Rockstar Games. He assisted with the launch of Grand Theft Auto V and was also involved in the creation of cutscenes for Red Dead Redemption 2.

“I thought you guys could detect witches." Jonathan muttered as soon as he got over his shock at seeing two people materialise in front of him. The wiccan sat on the floor, his shoulder being strapped with a makeshift bandage, by the ever-practical Ian.

"We detect magic, not witches." Hunter clarified. "We can't feel anything out of the ordinary, unless they start casting."

"Oh fantastic!" Jonathan groaned. "I'll remember that excuse later.”
K.S. Marsden, The Shadow Reigns

“Hunter could only groan. “What are you doing, Kristen?”

“Bringing breakfast.” She replied innocently. “Think of it as thanks for saving my life.”

“Ok, then think of it as punishment for putting my life at risk.” Kristen shrugged, and helped herself to a piece of toast. “It’s all a ruse, anyway.”
K.S. Marsden, The Shadow Falls

Pete Blaber, The Mission, The Men, and Me: Lessons from a Former Delta Force Commander

“The Small Group’s obsession with actionable intelligence had turned into an intellectual straitjacket. By narrowly defining the target opportunities to a specific point in time and location, they were in turn making the actionable intelligence requirement theoretically impossible to satisfy.15 They failed to realize that they had time. They had plenty of time to build better situational awareness and discover the numerous options and opportunities available to capture UBL prior to 9/11.”
Pete Blaber, The Mission, The Men, and Me: Lessons from a Former Delta Force Commander

“Sir, do not land those helicopters [there],” Jimmy pleaded while pointing at the valley floor. “The current plan is not going to work out for you.” The chief of staff replied apologetically, “I know, Jim, but it’s too late to do anything about it.”
