About the author (2005)

Bill Willingham never fought a desperate and losing battle in a good cause, never contributed to society in a meaningful way, and hasn?t lived a life of adventure, but he's had a few moments of near adventure. At some point in his life Bill learned how to get paid for telling scurrilous lies to good people, and he's been doing it ever since. He lives in the wild and frosty woods of Minnesota with a dog and a cat he hasn?t met yet.
