Write nodes now! Ask me how!
I'm pretty handy with giving massages and writing about mythology. And I think I'm a pretty good conversationalist.

Welcome to my HOMENODE
Greetings! This is the Everything2 Homenode for Kellum Johnson. My penname (Enormous John Junkill) is an anagram for my real name, and it is pronounced "JUNK-ill," just like it is spelled (although, if you want to go around pronouncing it as though it were French, zhun-KEEL, I won't mind!). If you are new to Everything2, looking for help and advice, feel free to contact me. If you are wanting to read my work, please see above under "View Junkills Writeups" click on the link and it will take you to a list (in reverse chronological order) of my writings here (there's also an index at the bottom of this page, if you scroll down, sorted by subject).

If you would like to contact me about any of my writings on E2, please see the contact information below. If you think you might be interested in signing up for an E2 account, I can help there too!

JUNKILL IS (Like You Asked)
A 60-year old lifetime resident of the Dallas, Texas area. Lucky enough to be born on a very luck-luck-lucky day indeed (same as two other noders of high regard), he currently works as a massage therapist, although his career path has offered such interesting jobs as running a kid's clothing store, washing dishes in a hospital kitchen, proofreading, advertising design, and tax package layout.

He lives in a house with 2 cats, one guinea pig, and Suzi, his beloved Platonic Life Partner. Apart from E2, Mr. Johnson's hobbies include reading, writing, singing karaoke, travel, and music. He is the author of a self-published dictionary of mythological and legendary characters, which is currently in its third edition.

Address is available through EMAR and phone number (should you need it for some reason) is on his website.
