A determined digital artist, animator, adventurer and lover of science-fiction, Connor McKee sat down to write ‘Children of the Crater’ at the age of 16 purely because it was a story that needed to be told. Connor’s writing is often inspired by his nomadic travels across the known world, and his love of diving into new cultures. A devout reader, he is always delving into one fantastic story or another.
His family zigzagged across the British Isles for much of his childhood. He grew up in Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and in southern England, where he spent his time questing through the woods. From a young age he has trained in martial arts, practicing Kung Fu, Ju Jitsu and a little Tang Soo Do for good measure. Nowadays in his spare time he enjoys creating digital paintings, sculptures and animations to the tune of some delicious heavy metal. His first love, however, is that of adventure, discovery and experiencing the unknown in foreign parts. His travels have already taken him across five continents, but he has much further to go.
