About the Writer
Scott Wauchope can’t stop making sh** up. Every day something he sees or experiences makes some collection of neurons in his brain go aflutter with electricity and he begins obsessing over a random character, story, or bit of dialogue that won’t go away until he writes it down. Now, he must share these things with you, whether you like it or not.
