I am the author of "To Hell in a Hamper", "Goldilocks is a FOX!", "Escape from the Crazy Place", "Renegade Brainwave" and "Yak Shaving for Kicks and Giggles!"

I first discovered IF in the Eighties, playing and writing games on the Acorn Electron and BBC Micro. After 12 years in the wilderness, I rediscovered it in 2002.
