From Hex Games (I) website:
Steve Johnson grew up in a dry county in western Kentucky . After determining that standing around in the cold waiting to kill an animal wasn't much fun, he tried the other recreational activities available to him--driving around in circles, stealing road signs, and playing RPGs.After getting the hell out of western Kentucky, Steve continued to play games, but got tired of spending hours making characters and preparing for games. To solve this problem, he and Leighton Connor created QAGS, the Quick Ass Game System and founded Hex Games. Since then, Steve has been somehow involved with nearly every product Hex Games has released.
After driving a cab for ten years, Steve moved back to western Kentucky where he now works in the exciting, fast-paced world of PLASTICS! He also does freelance writing for a local alternative magazine and numerous web sites and watches a lot of movies.
