About the Author

Skywriter is for all practical purposes Jeffrey Channing Wells, best known in Internet circles as the co-creator of the award-winning daily webcomic "Skin Horse," whose coincidentally equine name is just that.  He also writes non-pony fiction, which you should totally check out over at  He quite sensibly views winged ponies as having the best of both worlds, a point which is totally indisputable so don't even try.  To sum, up, Ms. Lovingcup Harshwhinny is best pony.  Thank you.

BABSCon! · 11:58pm

One week to go!  Unfortunately, I don't have any panels for you to check out, but iff'n you want to say hi, odds are I'll be locatable some way or another, though it sounds like the fic panel scene in general is pretty sparse.  (Spoiled by EFNW, perhaps?)  Anyhow, I'd love to exchange quick, awkward chats with any and all of you in the few minutes before the embarrassment and shame kick in and I go slinking off to a dark corner somewhere.

It's about a 10-11 story gig, total.  Very doable if I could just get off my butt, although the climax story (w/t "First Citizen of Cloudsale") is a doozy.  The rest are more manageable 1-3 chapter gigs.  Thanks for your interest!

Hey Skywriter, just a quick stop and wave, but I'm curious on just how big you see yourself going with your cadance of cloudsdale series? Just from the available material, and various other "Books" highlighted in the story group, it really feels like quite a large undertaking!

I just hope it doesnt become too big that you end up having to give it up. That series if one of my favs on the entire site's literature, and I'll hate for it be put on an indefinite pause or something.

Thanks, so glad to hear you're enjoying my stuff!

I'm almost scared by how many of your stories I've read... and not cause I've been going through your stuff, but because I just work my way through the Top Stories - All Time list and they all seem to hang out in there.  I can't help but think that you must have among the highest average story ranking (not counting one hit wonders of course). Loving Contraptionology atm. Also loving the range of your work.

Well, you're welcome!  It's a good story.  It looks like you're winding up toward a conclusion now, so I felt pretty confident in tossing a fave there (unless you really choke on the epilogue, which seems unlikely!)  It's a very nice take on Cadance's origin and I won't pretend that reading your story didn't conversely light a fire under my own butt and make me want to do my own stuff better.

Anyway, whatever part I played in helping you bring the story to successful completion, I'm glad of it.
