"I'm a writer. It's what I do. So let's get to it."
From The Chronicler's Tales, Or, The PM Saga, Book XII



"In the more remote reaches of the world, somewhat east of Hollywood and north of Broadway, there is a land of Christmas Monsters. Into this land was born — of Maraschino and Spruce Monster — a female offspring, Purple Monster, nicknamed (unimaginatively but appropriately enough, I suppose) PM.
    "Since Christmas Monsterland was inhabited only by red and green Monsters, PM tended to clash with the rest of the community, causing great embarrassment to her family."
