If John Giezentanner were a dinosaur, he’d be either an Allosaurus or a Deinonychus. He lives in Denver and works in Boulder, Colorado (two places dinosaurs once roamed) removing invasive plant species from protected Open Space land. Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to global biodiversity, so, you know, it’s pretty important. Human Bones is John’s first published story, and thanks goes to his friend Tyler Burd for providing the inspiration.
If his first preferences were not available for some reason (like, somebody already chose them) John could easily settle for being a Therizinosaurus because, like him, it was a meat eater that evolved into a plant eater over time, and also because the name means “scythe lizard” and they looked like giant, nightmare Pokemon. If you’d like to Google or Facebook stalk John, he probably won’t know or be able to stop you. But really, Google Therizinosaurus instead, because that was a real animal that lived on this earth.
