About Wayne Gerard Trotman

Wayne Gerard Trotman is an award-winning British-Trinidadian author of action-packed thrillers, horror, fantasy and science fiction for adults and young adults, rhyming children's stories and inspiring cooking and travel non-fiction titles.

He has written screenplays for erotic horror, science fiction, and thrillers including Ashes to Ashes, Britain's first homegrown martial arts movie. His quotes can be found across social media, on websites and blogs, and in books and other publications internationally.

Trotman's novel, The Kairi Chronicles: Kaya Abaniah and the Father of the Forest, was the most recent work academically reviewed in Supernatural Literature, a 3-volume encyclopaedia published by St. James Press, which covers literature of the supernatural across the canon, including such notable works as Homer's Iliad, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Academic reviewer Sean Hutchison credits Trotman with rewriting the Soucouyant myth. During a Q&A session with the New Statesman, author and poet Dr Benjamin Zephaniah cited Trotman's Kairi Chronicles as the last book that changed his thinking.

A girls' school in Trinidad established a leadership think tank in Trotman's honour. His popular quotes such as: “People who repeatedly attack your confidence and self-esteem are quite aware of your potential, even if you are not,” have been posted internationally by academic institutions and various groups and individuals in their fight against bullying and bigotry.

Trotman is also a filmmaker, actor, artist, musician, photographer, blogger, cook, martial arts enthusiast and chess champion. In his well-received blog, Red Moon Chronicle, he has interviewed creative giants such as Syd Mead, John Howe, and Alan Dean Foster.

I loved this book; it is so engaging and mysterious. I was held by it from the start and hated to see it end. I was not sure what to expect, and at first the dialogue had me a little confused, but as I read on it became an absolute joy to read. I love books like this, with magic, myths and unexpected events that keep you turning pages. The characters are so well defined and each personality shows through. Kaya is awesome and I have to say he is my favorite one. His curiosity and passion to learn even from his imagination is outstanding. The details are perfect and so vivid; I could see, hear and even smell the land. I felt like I was there in the middle of it all. It is very well written and hard to put down. The glossary at the end was a nice touch and made the book easier to understand. My attention has been grabbed by this author, Wayne Gerald Trotman. I love his mind and imagination and I certainly will be looking for more of his work. I highly recommend this book to everyone; it is a powerful and amazing read. Let your mind go free and enjoy the journey.
