The Author

Everything on this website is written by me. Who am I, you ask? I’m just a normal everyday guy by the name of Scott Straughan. I also go by the moniker Clearmadness. Like a surprising number of authors, I’m Canadian.  These days I live in the province of Ontario, and contrary to the rumors I am not actually a goblin.

I started writing because I love world building and reading. I started reading at a young age and never ever stopped. My teachers had to confiscate my books. Eventually all those ideas and characters took root in my brain and I had to start writing myself. The world of the Iron Teeth is just one of many little pocket universes bouncing around in my head. I hope you enjoy it.
