While discussing his early career, Munly J Munly 32nd˚explains: “I love A. A. Milne, but I have found that is not my voice. What faltering voice I have found is drawn towards unsavory situations, malevolent characters, uncompromising settings.” – while also creating similar eclectic lyrical characters to Milne, Munly’s creativity does differentiate ]s his process however.
“I normally write in the first person” – further explains Munly: “But this does not mean I am the first person. I do love a few of my characters, however, I would not tolerate the majority of these abhorrence’s if they were real. And that is the crux. Many of these beings are not fiction in this world, for a portion of the human race they have been a dominating presence.”
