Background Information

PD Allen lives in a cabin in a remote section of the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's Upper Peninsula with a fey spirit that answers to the human name of Elizabeth. Their cabin is equipped with a hand pump to draw water. Electricity is provided by a bicycle hooked to a small generator.

He spends his days hunting, fishing and foraging. He travels around the UP a great deal, gathering folklore and exploring various mysteries. He also practices shamanism, and can sometimes be seen traveling through the wilderness, flying from treetop to treetop. Occasionally he assumes the form of a black panther, a large red fox or a hawk.

On clear nights when there is a full moon, locals say you can hear him playing his fiddle high up in the mountains. The Indians say he plays for the little Manitou, which come out to dance and caper.

At least once per week, he travels twenty-five miles on foot to the nearest cybercafe - Walt's Bait and Cybercafe. There he updates his blog - Of Our Own Design.
