Gray Hunt, or Grayson, is a peculiar human who has spent the majority of their life writing, reading, and obsessing over fictional characters. After the life-changing event that was Lord of the Rings, they couldn’t stay away from the fantasy genre and wrote a book, which at this time is in editing. Lover of dogs, sweets, and manga, you can find them playing video games in their basement until 3 a.m.
