Today's puzzle was constructed by Patrick
as part of a Birthday Puzzlehunt! I think it's very cool that he was able to weave this website into the experience.
Patrick (he/him) is an actor and puzzlemaker living in St. Louis, where he can also be found playing tabletop games with his daughter, Magnolia. He published his first crossword in 2005, and has since written hundreds of puzzles, many crossword books, and seven suites of puzzles which can be found on his website
