D. M. Almond



A letter from a stranger shattered my grasp on reality.

Abandoned by my family and trapped beneath a curse, I thought I was destined to a life of movie nights with my plants. When I inherited my grandmother's shop I discovered a world of mythical creatures, magical potions, and pleasure I didn’t know was possible. I’m not who I thought I was, and a new hope is blooming inside me.

But someone murdered my grandmother to steal her powers and now they’re after me. Now that I know who I am I’ll fight for my new life ‘til the bitter end.

Can I sort through the past to stop the murderer before they finish the job?”

D. M. Almond is a gnarly crusty dude with a mop on wait, that's Pauly Shore. David would love to tell you his life story, which you have undoubtedly come here to learn (hence the About Me click), but a recent parallel parking incident with his M-class Star Jumper has left him with a bad case of amnesia. He has spent the past year tracking down the truth of who he is and why he is here, much like most of us, using the only clues left behind after the accident; a black comb with the word Barbarino etched on it, a half full bottle of Lakewood Port, the scrumptious remains of a cinnamon roll, and an external hard drive labeled FML. All but the latter have proven useful in his quest, but he welcomes any insight you might be able to provide into the whereabouts of his mind.

                                                                   David lives in Buffalo, NY The best city this side of My Hammy and would love to hear from you!
