Shawn Taylor is a lifelong science fiction, fantasy, and comic book fan. He is a founding author of, and a founding organizer of the Black Comix Arts Festival. His passion for stories of other worlds led him to an obsession with role-playing games, eventually becoming a paid Dungeon Master for many Dungeons and Dragons campaigns.
