IN-JOKES & BACKGROUND
|This page is devoted to my first published series, acting as a companion to the books: providing information about the characters, the world they inhabit, and future events relating to PIT. Although there are just three books out, so far, it is my goal to have about 10 - 15, total, to tell all the stories I have planned for the characters. It is my hope to have at least one new book out every year or two, possibly more frequently if time permits.|
