About Knotty Puppet

I'm the rather slight fellow you see dangling in the cave, center stage on the cover of THE GODDESS & THE DEVIL, a most unique and provocative multi~genre creation. It's a ton of real, thoroughly researched history called upon by our fictitious players arguing about good & evil (&c., &c., ...) who happened to find themselves in one Hell of a bind one night in Salem, 1692.

  1. so true..Education not only brings knowledge, but also the traits of sophistication and humanity; the ability to solve disputes and respect others

    • Absolutely agree! Education breeds understanding; and understanding breeds not only intellectual, but emotional maturity as well. While lack of understanding breeds fear; and fear breeds contempt & violence.
