Bio:  A longtime reader, LD started writing stories about ten minutes after he learned to hold a crayon.  Of course, it took several years for him to transition from freeform hieroglyphics into his second language, English.  At the age of eighteen, after years and years of practice, LD decided it was time to go public and stun the world with his genius.  When the world refused to be stunned, or for that matter, print anything, he went back to the drawing board and spend several more years learning the craft of writing.  Now, eighteen years later, he is set to try again, having moved the bar down from ‘stun the world with his genius’ to ‘gain reticent acknowledgement of his basic understanding of story-telling and the English language.’
