Matthew "Ed the Editor" Summers
About me, eh? Well, let's see... my shoe size is... wait, you don't
care about that. I've been writing off and on since I was about
thirteen or fourteen, and have only within the past four years taken up
writing on any sort of serious note. Hopefully I'll one day have good
news to post on the main page about publication prospects for one of my
books. :D :D :D
I write in just about every genre you can think of, fantasy,
sci-fi,horror... I love writing short stories based on other people's
drawings, which is where this whole project itself came from. I wrote a
story for one of Michelle's pictures, she later asked me if I wanted to
think about doing a webcomic for it... and if you know me, getting
anything percolating in my little head is a VERY dangerous prospect.
I'm also involved in a few other projects besides this one. Patchwork
is another comic I write for, drawn by Anke. I'm the head Wyverns
Library Moderator for Elfwood. I'm a network administrator, married,and
have three children, only one of which isn't furry. Anything else about
me likely isn't very interesting, so I'll hush up now.
Also, Matt has a fairly unique forum avatar that he uses constantly
which has generated some fanart of its own. To see Ed(his muse and
avatar personality) in all his otherworldly glory, click HERE.

If I wasn't already a little crazy and a workaholic, I think the
decision to do a webcomic would have pushed me over the edge. As is,
I'm generally peachy keen with my lot in life. I like to be busy,
whether it's drawing, writing, playing my viola, or mindlessly
wandering the Internet for something entertaining. To support my
habits, I work for the mutual fund industry.
I met Matt through Elfwood when we were both moderators on that
site. He asked me some time in September 2004 if he could write a
short story based on one of my paintings, and after I read the
three-page story I found myself inspired to draw a few of the other
characters. Come December, I had 10 illustrations of all the major
players, a script many times longer than the original story, and a few
hundred new files devouring space on my hard disk - rough drafts for
pages, covers, web graphics, and everything else. The comic itself will
be a perpetual work-in-progress, and I look forward to sharing our new
world with readers.
