Have you ever gotten an internet survey? It has strange questions like your favorite foods, and flavors, that sort of thing.
Ever wondered what would happen if you had a novel character answer one of those?
I decided to have a little fun this week, so I decided to fill one of them out last week as my character Sean A.P. Ryan, mercenary, security expert, and weapon of mass destruction.. You've seen him mentioned on the sight, you've probably even read some of the short stories, including his "origin".
This week, I'm working on Scott "Mossad" Murphy, who you've also seen around the site a few times.
