According to the author himself: Deref is an Australian, which probably accounts for his weird spelling. He writes mainly in order to exorcise demons who, for the most part, would be better off just going to the gym. He lives in the past because it's cheaper and prefers the fantasy world to the real one since the fantasy world is so much more believable.
