Nicholas May (1973 - present) was born in Flint, Michigan but moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1986. He has worked a variety of jobs ranging from Bouncer to Formal Wear Store Manager to MMA Instructor and School Owner to Tanning Salon General Manager, all while wishing he was a writer. He has sold numerous short stories, which will be sold in a collection in late 2012, but this is his first novel. While his series "Trouble Meets The May Boys" deals with the fantastical adventures he and his brother Joey are met with, always by Joey's penchant for trouble, Nicholas maintains that they are almost 90% true, and all heroic scenes and signs of bravery from Nicholas himself were all based on true acts of his own amazing bravery. (Well, mostly true.)
He is the proud father of three wonderful children, who are his inspiration for everything he does, and who are his biggest supporters. Daddy loves you!
Praise for the Author:
"Loved the adventures of the May Boys, and think middle grade readers will love them, too. Hope this book finds the readership it deserves." - Ellen Hopkins, Author of several New York Times Best Sellers, including Crank, and Tilt

Roy Hudson has put out an excellent collection of stories that if it actually WERE Halloween, you'd probably be best off not reading it until the sun came up the next morning! My personal favorite, and even the title made me giddy with excitement as I got the reference immediately, was "The Blog of Eternal Stench"
Can't wait to read more from Roy Hudson!
