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.
