J.M. Pedri began writing short and creepy stories when a razor-fanged alien monkey shoved an antique typewriter on the family's writing desk and demanded a story in exchange for sparing the earth a horrible fate. Of course, the story was written and earth was saved. The Pedri home is now guarded by four attack turtles and a wrinkled pony-dog, all of which can be bribed with carrots. Please keep that a secret, lest the razor-fanged monkeys return. Oh, and did we mention that J.M. tells weird tales?
