Born: 3/22/66

Hometown: Akron, Ohio, cause it's cheap!

Notes: I am most proud of my adult fairy tale "Mara." I began the project twelve years ago as a comic book but have recently moved on to creating my Mara books as lavishly illustrated prose. Mara is difficult to describe, imagine if Disney had collaborated with De Sade! I am quite pleased that Mara's most hardcore fans are women! It shows that my heart is in the right place with the project. There are three Mara collections available now, and a fourth on the way. To see more, go to my website and check into the "Fascination" entry. I always felt cheated by the "erotica" and "exploitation" I read or watched, and decided it was high time somebody did it right... check it out. Warning: Mara is not for the squeamish or the easily offended.

I can only imagine that D. Cramer has embarassing pics of someone at WoTC stashed away in a safety deposit box somewhere. He consistently underwhelms, and I can only shake my head in puzzlement that his work is given so much exposure, while so many talented artists go unrecognized.

Dennis does wonderful artwork in my opinion. It's creative, and orgional, and you can't help but to enjoy it. As I've had a chance to meet him in person, and see his work close up, I'll continue by saying his work is detailed and worth having and him and his wife both are exceptional people.

I've had the honor of meeting 'Crabapple' (formerlly D. Cramer) and I can tell ya he is a nice guy. He's also said to me that if you really enjoyed his work to send a letter or email to WOTC and/or the art producers and let them know you like his work. That way we can keep him eating. :) (Bragging rights) My fiance' and I grabbed an autographed SELKIE from the fiend folio (Water colored by the artist) and a free-worked water color of a dragons profile..again auto'd heh. Send those letters-emails if you really enjoy his work.
