T.J. Lantz


Though new to the world of professional writing, T.J. Lantz has been a world class storyteller (A.K.A. liar) for many years. Originally forging his craft by creating backstories for each of the lawn gnomes he managed to liberate from the prisons his neighbors called their front yards, lately he has answered to a much higher calling. Namely, making up stories to entertain the small children that people refer to as his "students". Encouraged by his ability to trick ten-year-olds into believing everything he says is true, Mr Lantz has now decided to offer his amazing manipulative abilities to the rest of the world. He plans on world domination within three months.
