In the latter months of the year 2010, a writing competition was held in the Blount County, and surrounding areas, of Alabama. The winner of this competition was to have his or her book published through Fifth Estate Publishing, a small company that prints authors by invitation only. Stephen Dorning won that competition with his first book ‘Stars of the Kanri’, a story that was a strange mixture of faith and science fiction. Since then, Stephen has published a sequel to Stars with ‘Spheres of the Ryk-tar’ and is currently working on his third story set in the same world. He has also been recently featured in Imagicopter’s steampunk anthology, ‘Clockwork Spells & Magical Bells’ printed by Kerlak Publishing. Stephen was born and raised in the rural area of Blountsville, Alabama, where he lives with his wife, Vicki and their four children. He attends Mount Tabor Baptist Church and currently teaches the Young Adult class. You can find more info on his work at www.heavymetalcowboy.com, and at www.facebook.com/dorningbooks
