Writer of Heavy Metal Fairy Tales. These stories are based on some former band mates of mine who I used to play with. Book one was originally written as a Heavy Metal musical (something like Rocky Horror)but they deemed it to be unworkable without financial backing, so brought it out as a book instead!
"Possibly the finest use of ITC Garamond Condensed ever seen!" (print version of book 1)- Joe Graham www.type.co.uk
"An uplifting comic fantasy in which a furtive self-pleasure is thwarted by the awesome power of True Metal buffoonery!"- Robin Askew Venue Magazine
*** This book was made from 100% biodegradable, recycled words - Not suitable for followers of False Metal.

Bruno Sentinel is one of my writing personas and quite different from the other - he is the philosopher and poet.
My other writing personas are A Grant (the author of some dark novels and shortstories) and Blake Strong (the dirty minded one)
I do not believe in being one dimensional, so I do not see me burying any of these personas - some of them may be dormant now and again, but never dead.
The hard copies of Vigilante and Armageddon are available on Createspace.

Growing up on the small island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, there was little to hold the attention of a child. Amusement was rarely bought, but made. Writing and reading made her world as big as her imagination allowed it to be.
After a move to Virginia and adjusting to college life, Nickie seldom had time to do what she loved most. It would be years before she started writing again.
Now living in New York, Nickie tries to juggle her job, her love of writing and need of reading...often unsuccessfully. She is now the proud author of a young adult serial novel, Hybrid Angel.

Margaret has always gone after creative, thought-provoking books with deep characters. When she didn't find too many with that exact blend, she decided to try and write some of her own. She explored her creative side with a major in engineering and a minor in studio art, and traveled half-way across the globe, from Bulgaria to the tropics, and finally the California desert. Maybe that's why her characters never sit still.
She loves to read, illustrate, watch historical movies, ice skate, and dream, and has a high regard for culture, martial arts, and the French and Japanese languages.
At the end of the day, there's nothing she enjoys more than a good story.

I live in Great Britain and I'm an avid reader. Sometimes I'm fascinated with sensational style journalism and the 24 hour news cycles on cable TV. I'm left amazed by how tabloid reporters and cable Networks choose to chronicle the times of our lives. I own a typewriter but it might as well be for decoration. I prefer using computers as they are a lot more user friendly. Among my other possessions are a shelf full of books, an e-reader and a fruit blender.

Jag som skrev Granne med lyckan och Mordet i Risveden är uppväxt bland landshövdingehus i Majorna i Göteborg där jag präglades av vad som då var en arbetarstadsdel men idag är något helt annat.
Trots att jag var van vid gator mellan täta rader av hus lärde jag mig tidigt i livet att älska naturen och trivas i skog och mark.
Min skolgång bestod i huvusak i att gå enstaka kurser i livets skola. Dessvärre fick jag inte godkänd i många ämnen.
Mitt första romanmanus skrev jag som elvaåring.
Att välja nya vägar före gamla är för mig en självklarhet. Även att undvika att gå i andras fotspår.

I'm a middle aged teen who is a hyperactive typer and writer. I began writing in the form of written roleplay in online forums at first and when I attained the patience to generally write long texts, I thought of writing a book. Initially I did not have a single clue what I was going to write about, but as I started, it all slowly came to me.
Besides writing, I'm a normal boy too. Albeit not a gregarious one, I tend to make easy friends online - internationally.
Extreme sports and ninjas are my other worldly interests.
