The Phantom's page:
here's an index of some of the pieces that I wrote for clevermag...

For those of you who are new to Clever, "the Phantom" is my pen name. When I first began working on Clever, I had very few contributors, so I invented The Phantom, as a staff member. She's still with us.

Cheers from Dianne Kochenburg,
the editor of Clever Magazine
