From Hex Games (I) website:
Ever since he was a boy growing up in southeastern Kentucky , Leighton Connor has been a fan of rules-light RPG systems. This could be because he sincerely believes role-playing should be a collaborative storytelling process, or it could just be because he’s terrible at math. Either way, Leighton co-created QAGS (the Quick Ass Game System) with Steve Johnson in 1997. Since then Leighton has worked as either a writer or an editor on every Hex Games product.As Hex's Creative Director, Leighton is responsible for reviewing submissions, scheduling releases, and overseeing writers, artists, and editors. Leighton lives in Ohio with his loving wife Alice. They are both Geminis, and both allergic to cats. In their spare time they like to watch TV shows on DVD.
