author

Jeff Hirsch

"A year or so after grad school I started reading books from writers like M.T. Anderson, KL Going, and David Almond and was blown away by the quality of writing that was going on for teen audiences"

"I wrote throughout High School but was also pretty wrapped up in the process of becoming a big ol’ theater nerd. I wrote stuff and directed plays and performed in shows like Indians, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Taming of the Shrew, The Man of La Mancha and various others."

Problem

Stephen is living in a sad world where there isn't much to do the world must be civilized but that's hard to do alone.

Soloution

To solve the lack of population Stephen goes to a city. And stops the city from being destroyed by a fort, simply by asking for a truce, at that point everybody really appreciates jenny and Stephen.
