eddy styx lives in an eerie old house where the floors creak, ominously. His hobbies are poetry and the three M's: motorcycles, mayhem, and murder. He lives alone with his Cat, Phineas, a lovely Manx, and several ghosts from his past.

At least that is how C. M. Mattison imagines him, for he is her male alter ego and true companion. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Steven. They share their home with two cats: Mia and Shadow, both Russian Blues.

When she isn't writing poetry, she spends her time reading or playing PlayStation video games.
