Garon Whited - Heroes are Never More Dangerous Than When They're Dead
FEATURED AUTHOR - Garon Whited is a Perfectly Normal Person with an overactive imagination. This means he has conversations with people who aren't there and may, in fact, be imaginary. Garon tries to focus this into socially-acceptable venues, but he tends to associate with people who also have overly active imaginations, so he isn't sure he is succeeding.  As our Author of the Day, he tells us all about his latest book, Dragonhunters.
