Steph (no one actually calls him Genius) has always wanted to write a novel. An avid reader at an early age, he came to writing in his early 20s doing mostly freelance work for various RPG companies and writing short stories. As with any subject that holds fascination for him, he's always wanted to try his hand at it, and figuring that he wasn't any worse than people who had been published in the past, gave it a try. So far, things are interesting, if not a little confused. The ways he sees it, if you're gonna try something, might as well make sure it's really hard. Else, you have no reason to fail miserably.
Apart from writing, Steph likes to make/play games, beer, movies and a host of other things that cannot be talked about on a family website.

Nique Yager is a writer and illustrator who makes her living doing
random things that have no bearing on civilization as a whole. But
her true calling is mockery; to make fun of others and have them feel
bad about themselves. In this, she truly excels. However, while she
can dish it, she cannot take it as her sensitive artist's "soul"* is
brittle and weak like an eggshell and if broken reveals the
unfertilized embryo of a baby chick in the form of so much white and
Paradise Syndrome is a comic Nique started with a lazy, shiftless
friend who turned out to redefine lazy and shiftless. He dropped the
ball and she picked it up, only to lobby it out to Strawpixel, where
it now resides, cozy and secure in the hearth of Montreal based online
art and literature. While not autobiographical in nature, Paradise
Syndrome does echo a fundamental truth about the meaninglessness of
Nique's existence. (As well as your own). Enjoy.
*Nique does not believe in the existence of souls and is therefore way
ahead of her time and more avant-garde (pretentious) than you'll ever
