Description Edit | History

Well, I guess I have to talk about myself, then, uh?

I'm a newbie game designer, who started by doing a mod of "Zombie in my Pocket" called "Airborne in my Pocket". Then I went on to design my first original game, "D-Day Dice", in 2009 (published in 2012 by Valley Games, along with a slew of expansions). "Airborne In Your Pocket" (new name) will be published by Valley Games in 2013.

My background is mostly in writing: I have been publishing novels since 1990 (I was 22), with the occasional article in magazines (mostly as a book reviewer), and I have worked in the publishing business (even had my own publishing house for a while, in 2000-2003). I've dabbled in illustrations and graphics, too. Since 2005, I've been paying my bills writing for TV, which is totally not as glamorous as it sounds. And I now have my own TV show, which started airing in January 2013 (a ghost sitcom called "L'Appart du 5e").
