I live in England with my family. I have a Degree in Astrophysics in which I studied subjects like Chaos Theory and Quantum Mechanics from which I learnt to imagine the strange and abstract. I have always been described as a day dream, so I decided to put my imagination to good use by writing stories.
I have written a two series:-
Vampire Formula books 0 & 1
"I Want Vengeance #0" and "The Birth of Vengeance #1"
Book 3 "The Truth of Vengeance" is to be released in 2014.
The other set of books are a superhero series "Wrong Place, Wrong Time"
The books follow the story of a superhero "Subject Zero" with each story revealing more about him.
His introduction begins in the free book "Hero's Break"

Greg Redd has been fascinated by words and how they can be made to fit together in an effort to make sense of a mad world since an early age. When the art and drama of his high school years faded as a creative outlet, words took their place.
At first the words he put together were kept private.
Then he started working in hospitality management and later in adult education. He started putting the words together for technical manuals, corporate training tools and academic materials.
Later he became bored with writing for business and started random scribblings to feed his frequently obscure and rampantly imaginative creative side again.
Then, in the early hours of an insomnia driven morning in late 2012 h ... read more

Max Frick was born in Scotland where he spent more than half of his life thus far in a new town not dissimilar to the one depicted in his novel Debaser. At the age of twenty-five, seeking something a little more fulfilling than the drudgery and routine that his hometown had to offer, he upped sticks and moved to Prague in the Czech Republic, where he imagined artists and bohemians drank freely and deeply from the cup of life. There he would write! There he would shine! There he would make his name! There, alas, he lives to this day in a life of drudgery and routine not dissimilar to the one depicted at the beginning of this bio.
