The author Jeff Mitchell appears seemingly normal when encountering his outer shell. However when putting pen to paper he has been described at times as a “sick puppy” and his work has been described as “dark” and even “disturbing”. Unable to deny these accusations he author would like it to be known he relishes those accolades.
