Michael Cairns

Biography

Michael Cairns was born at a young age and could write even before he could play the drums, but that was long ago, in the glory days - when he actually had hair.

He loves chocolate, pineapple, playing gigs and outwitting his young daughter (the scores are about level but she's getting smarter every day).

Michael is currently working hard on writing, getting enough sleep and keeping his hair. The first is going well, the other two...not so much.

> Young adult, science fiction adventure series, 'A Game of War'
1. Childhood dreams
2. The end of innocence
3. Playing God
4. Breathing in space
5. Escape
6. Gateway to earth

> Urban fantasy super-hero series, 'The Planets'
1. The spirit room
2. The story of Erie
