carl duzett: award-winning author of scifi, fantasy, and humor

Carl Duzett was sent from the future to terminate the mother of an eventual resistance leader. He married her instead, and now writes speculative fiction with an unfair advantage. They live together in Utah with their five children, of which only some have exhibited predilection for the leading of resistances.
