Episode 334 Interview With J.B. Lion

Today's Topic – Welcome J.B. to the forge

A stellar student in high school and college, Mr. Lion always had a knack for creative and professional writing. Those traits would come in handy as he spent most of his adult years a project manager, travelling the world implementing transit technology.

During this time, he never stopped writing short stories which he kept in several notebooks over a span of 15 years. The primary theme of these stories culminated from a simple game he would play with his two sons to pass the time. The game centered around three different societies, each one trying to outmaneuver one another for control of the universe.
