A little bit about me the screenwriter:
"Sometimes fate... like the creation of the universe....powers it all." quote 1.9.16 by janis deglis.
I, Janis Waldis Deglis, was born by way of a simple twist of fate... a snipers bullet whos aim was slightly off from a deadly hit. The "dum- dum" bullet full of shrapnel delivered by this sniper left my father shattered with lifelong injuries but spared his life from a sure death in the cold winter front at the Russian border. So it was this sniper who delivered me to this world because had it not been for him, I would not have been born. My father would had died...frozen in the cold tundra like many of his comrades in arms and so the story goes on from here...
