Our Member of the Month for July, 2024 is Mark Trinkwalder of New Baltimore, Michigan.

Mark says: “First off, I want to say thank you for honor of being able to show my ugly mug and for having the ability to share about me.

I was about 19 when I had my first run in with The Call of Cthulhu RPG. Our GM had us make characters and then took our sheets. We never saw them again. He kept them private and we all died in pretty gruesome ways.

My first HPL story was "The Call of Cthulhu", had I stopped there, I would never have picked it up again. My favorite story is "The Thing On The Doorstep".

I currently live in Michigan, just outside of Detroit but plan on moving north.

I am a forever cook and an aspiring author who hopes to publish by the end of the year.

While there probably isn't much more to say, this community and everyone have been all sorts of amazing and I am proud of the friends and family it has brought to me."
