Basil E. Bacorn, author, artist, and entrepreneur, is a self-proclaimed Creativity Specialist with nearly a decade’s worth of creative endeavors under their belt. From baking to writing to business, Basil has a wide range of interests but by no means is a jack of all trades. Their abilities do not cover a number of physical activities such as gymnastics, swimming, and walking without bumping into things, and they are not yet certified to work on cars or represent you in the courtroom. They can, however, bake a tasty cake, write a lovely short story, and teach you a random useless fact you did not ask for.

Basil went to college in Maine where they learned the art of shoveling snow and earned an associate's degree in Business and Entrepreneurial Studies. They are now studying communications online through Drexel University in pursuit of their bachelor's degree. From there, Basil intends to continue on to obtain their master's degree in library and information science and possible PhD in information science.

When it comes to writing, Basil is often inspired by legends, fairy tales, classic works, and more. The author of over ten books, including Geek GodsThe Book of Random ThoughtsMothman Goes to School, and the Dark's Descent Series, they have a penchant for adding twists and turns into their writing and putting spins on the stories we all know and love. 

In art and design, Basil is knowledgeable in Adobe Creative Cloud and works as a freelance graphic designer who specializes in logo design and business graphic content. Basil also has history of creating realistic illustrations with colored pencils, one favorite piece being The Sandwichand is currently focusing their artistic endeavors on jewelry, wirework, beading, collage, assemblage, and fiber arts.
