About all this Professional Lying.

H.P. Lovecraft (that's him looking so dapper to the left) said every story should have the verisimilitude of a good hoax. I couldn’t agree more. For me a story isn’t good unless part of my brain thinks, “This could happen". People want to be swept away by stories, and it also gives me a clear goal: Tell a convincing lie. This is my mission and why I like to think of myself as a professional liar.
It's also fun to consider that people will actually pay you for just making stuff up.
I lie. You buy.
