Wayne Gerard Lionel Trotman is a British writer, blogger, filmmaker, artist, photographer, composer and producer of electronic music.
Born in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Trotman studied at Presentation College, San Fernando, under the late former principal, Brother Michael Samuel, whom he described as one of the greatest human beings he had ever known. He won the Presentation College Art Prize twice - 1979 and 1982. During the early 1980's, Trotman won several national art prizes in Trinidad and Tobago. His artwork during this period consisted largely of comic book illustrations and acrylic or oil paintings.
In August 1984, Trotman moved to England to study art and design at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea, London. In 1985, his work was chosen for the London Youth Festival Exhibition. Between the late 1980's and mid 1990's, Trotman produced compositions for British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB); as well as low budget independent film productions. He completed his second feature film script entitled ‘Ashes to Ashes’ in 1994; and, in 1995, his short film – ‘London: Metropolis of the Future’ premiered at the British Short Film Festival. Trotman, who is trained in several martial arts disciplines, directed, co-produced, scored and edited the British independent film, Ashes to Ashes, in 1998 - arguably the world’s first digital feature film and Britain’s first martial arts movie. He also played the film’s lead role of Gabriel Darbeaux and used real martial arts weapons, including the nunchaku or two-piece rod.
In 2006, Trotman co-produced a training DVD, which tackles the cause of anxiety and panic attacks: The Fight or Flight Response. Between 2006 and 2009, he wrote his epic Psychic Wars sci-fi novel: Veterans of the Psychic Wars; and in 2012 he released the eBook, Ashes to Ashes: Screenplay. Also in 2012, Trotman became Kingston upon Thames adult intellectual chess champion in what was his first and only British chess tournament. January 2014 saw Trotman at number 1 on the Reverbnation Electronica chart for the UK and 6th globally, and he has maintained a Top 40 presence throughout 2014. In December 2014, he released Kaya Abaniah and the Father of the Forest, another thrilling instalment from the Psychic Wars universe.

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.
