Kell Inkston


Born in an extra-dimensional pocket of space that was probably filled with good books, Kell emerged one long Summer to begin its quest to become a writer of renown and a voice of reason in a world that needs more writers of renown and voices of reason- what a laudable goal.

Kell is certainly a something-or-other that believes that all those that can read should do so often, as education is the key to an efficient and peaceful society. So if you can read this, keep doing that- good job.
