Steven Hammond is a Sci-fi/fantasy author from California. His first book RISE OF THE PENGUINS has been an Amazon Top-Seller in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. He believes that RISE OF THE PENGUINS will likely win the Pulitzer prize for best penguin fiction. He fully expects this and all future works to garner the highest praise in the literary world. By the time of his death in the year 2033 or 2047 (depending on whether or not he has that next slice of pizza), he will have amassed wealth greater than that all of the nations of this world and worlds not yet discovered.
His new title: THE WARLORD, THE WARRIOR, THE WAR (a novella from the RISE OF THE PENGUINS SAGA), is now available.
A lifelong fan of Scifi and fantasy, his earliest memories were that of reading Danny and the Dinosaur and Curious George. From there he took the next logical step and delved deeply into the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Watching television shows such as Lost in Space and Star Trek as a young child fueled his love for the genre. The art of Frank Frazetta adorned his walls as a youth and movies such as "The Giant Spider Invasion", "Planet of the Apes", "Sssssss", just about any movie that involved Ray Harryhausen, a slew of Godzilla films and , of course Star Wars, left indelible impressions upon his psyche and can be seen in his work.
He is currently working on book 3 in the RISE OF THE PENGUINS SAGA titled ROYAL CREED,and book 4, tentatively titled THE WHISPERS OF SHADOWS.He is developing artwork for his first children's book and, on the opposite end of the spectrum, an mature humor fantasy adventure web series.
Life has taught him to never take himself too seriously because that just takes all of the fun out it.
