The road to hell is paved with adverbs.

- Stephen King


Born and raised in central Maine, Jeffery currently resides in Maryland, where he and his incredible, supportive, and uber-geek-tastic wife, Jennifer, have a lovely view of the mountains.  He enjoys reading and hiking, a good cold beer every now and again, and anything to do with anyplace that’s warm (and absolutely hates the cold).  His lifelong dream is to quit work and write full time, if he can ever get his kids to move out and start being adults.





About Trollbreath:  Trollbreath started as a creative endeavor wrapped around the design of DnD supplements, mostly character sheets and game modules.  At the time – the late 1980’s – I was heavily involved with an RPG group and wanted to replace some of the documents provided by the company for players to use.  Trollbreath became the fictional name of the character who was doing the design work, a depressed troll artist with severe halitosis.  Over the years it’s served as a place for my creative outlets, whether blogging, game design, or writing and I keep paying for the domain name even if it’s never going to be a going concern.


Writing Quotes & Links



The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn’t require any.

— Russell Baker
