Jeff Suwak

Jeff has distinctly Hobbit-like feet covered in lush, luxurious coats of hair—a sure sign that his life was destined from the start to be intertwined with the fantasy genre. He couldn't have escaped it if he tried. He abhors children and pets of all kinds. He has a crass, unpleasant sense of humor and has been described as both "deplorable" and "maniacal," by others as well as by himself. Jeff is also a writer. Sometimes he gets lucky and his stuff turns out pretty good. It can be accessed at www.beyondthetempestgate.com. There are also some free publications floating around the net. He is also a regular contributor to Song Facts at http://www.songfacts.com/blog/author-Jeff_Suwak/.
