Hailing from the American Rocky Mountains, Daniel Dougherty is an introvert with much to say; consequently he has resorted to writing. Focusing mainly on the subjects of History, Folklore, and Literature, he seeks to learn from ages past (often exhausting all sources of research) in order to pass it on to his own halflings (and for his own amusement). He also attempts numerous illustrations (usually Tolkien related) in his non-existent free time.
When America was first discovered, St.Nicholas was remembered as a wonder worker to be implored for his spiritual intercession and a bringer of gifts and guardian of children. But Martin Luther wanted to eliminate any devotion to the saint.
