Donn Cortez is the pseudonym of Don DeBrandt, a resident of Vancouver, BC, Canada for the last twenty years. He is addicted to science fiction, dogs, comic books, Kate, cats, Burning Man, hot tubs, Pop culture, nude beaches and putting words down on paper. He does not approve of bullies, blue cheese, or Bridge (well, any card game based on "taking tricks" actually; writers are already accused of prostitution way too often, and besides, it starts with a B). He occasionally wages war with small, brightly-colored pieces of plastic while pretending they have super-powers.
