I am a writer and designer who has been creating stories in one way or another since childhood.  A chance pickup at an elementary school book fair (Goblins in the Castle by Bruce Coville) began my fascination with goblins, and I’ve always believed that they could be more than just simple fodder for stalwart adventurers.
