Lander M Kerbey was born in 1988, the result of a government breeding program which, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, was subsequently shut down. Left to his own devices, a young Lander Kerbey wandered the byways and highways of this great land, dodging semi trucks and whatever it is that travels on byways. In between being crowned Massasuga County cow-punching champion, and achieving near-folklore status in a chain of small towns near the Canadian border, Lander Kerbey discovered a love of the written word, and devoted his life to perfecting the art of writing. And the art of shaving with freshly-caught trout. Lander Kerbey has never been indicted for malfeasance and has the strength of three Boris Johnsons.
