Bard Constantine


Bard Constantine was nearly 30 years old when he decided to quit procrastinating and pursue a career in novel writing. The next few years were spent obsessing over his first novel, a fantasy epic that nearly finished him.

After surviving that ordeal, he applied himself to learning the craft of writing. In time his work turned into novels, short stories, poetry, and screenplays. His work often dwells in fantasy, science fiction, and the surreal aspects of the human mind. He defies convention, spinning archetypes and creating new perspectives on storytelling and world building.

Currently residing in Birmingham, Alabama, he adds his ever-growing compilations of literary manuscripts while trying keep a somewhat suspect hold on something called 'reality'. With his widening audience and steadily growing body of work, he is certainly a writer to look out for. His latest updates can be found at Twitter: @BardConstantine; Facebook:; and his web site:

The name's Mick Trubble. The faded letters on my office window say ‘Troubleshooter’. Sure it's a nice bit of wordplay, but it's also what I do for a living. I guess when times were civilized my occupation would have been a private investigator. Times change. When people got nowhere else to turn, they give me a call. I do pretty much what the name implies. I shoot trouble.
