Biography
I'm a small-bodied, long-legged, dark-skinned, self-lettered flamboyant wordsmith.
I am an industrious, unquenchable burning fire. The humble, good-hearted booksmith next door.
You see, I'm deadly when armed with a pen and paper. Fierce when entrusted with the quiet and peace of the early morning.

I'm no saint, but I'll hold on to that principle.
