Michael Carr was an original Turtle. Before being hired as a Turtle by Richard Dennis he was a writer and game designer known for writing Fight in the Skies and Don’t Give Up the Ship! (I am not familiar with these, but clearly there is a following!). Carr later joined Dungeons & Dragons and wrote In Search of the Unknown. Today, Carr writes for American Snowmobiler Magazine while residing in Wisconsin. This reinforces the diversity of Turtles selected.
