- Pond and CompanyRecurring Maintenance Analyst, 2012 - presentI do stuff that involves a computer. I mostly set at a desk. Occasionally, I get to go on road trips. It's super and that's all you need to know. (Also, I see you there NSA. Stop peeking.)
Hmm, well, I was born in the year of our Lord 1979. According to legend I started out as a tumor. This prognosis made my mother very sad as she thought she was dying of cancer. The doctor's decided it would be in my mother's best interest to irradiate her via chemotherapy treatment. Unfortunately, some genius doctor thought to give her a pregnancy test on the next doctor's visit because her tumor had tripled in size much more quickly than is ordinary. Thus, I was not irradiated and did not gain the superpowers I so richly deserved.
Moving forward in time, I remember my mother reading me issues of Spiderman and Captain America comics in the mid-80's as bedtime stories. I couldn't be bothered with the rather inane stories of the Brothers Grimm. I wanted action! I wanted heroic fisticuffs! I wanted KA-BOOM's and KER-POW's! Dear old mom wouldn't make the sound effect noises though so I had to do them myself once I learned to read. I also fell in love with doodling little dinosaur comics around this time. My drawing ability hasn't improved much since.
Flashing forward, mom and dad got divorced so I pretty much drowned myself in ficticious world's of wonder. Dad encouraged it due to the fact that he had to work constantly to take care of the both of us. He bought me Dark Knight Returns at a comic shop in Atlanta when we visited my sister once. It was the greatest gift I ever received. I remember when the lights went out in the south eastern states due to a horrendous winter storm. I discovered Stephen King and his Gunslinger, Roland Dechain, on those dark nights. King begat Herbert who begat Assimov and so on and so forth.
A few years later in high school I discovered the joy of cerebral comics. Neil Gaiman introduced me to a world that took place only in dreams. Now I still read X-Men but this was something new to me. Comics that were smart.
And time went on in a haze of drugs and alcohol until I got married and then I joined the United States Air Force. The USAF kept me busy so I didn't really have time to write but I've experienced a great many cultures and been around the world. I made notes on top of notes for the past decade and stories have been percolating in my mind. During this time I've had some children as well and they keep me on my toes.

- Waverly CHSscrewing around, 1994 - 1997I have a foggy recollection of these days. It involved drugs, women, promiscuity, alcohol, and I somehow walked away with a diploma. No one else in my row did. HAHAHA! Suckers!
