Steven Hammond is a author and artist from California's Central Valley. His first book RISE of the PENGUINS has been an Amazon Top-Seller in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. He believes that his first title, RISE OF THE PENGUINS should have won the Pulitzer prize for best penguin fiction, but apparently that's not a category. By the time of his death in the year 2033 or 2047 (depending on diet and exercise), he will have amassed wealth greater than that all of the nations of this world and worlds not yet discovered.
Books 2 & 3 of the Rise of the Penguins Saga, The Warlord, The Warrior, The War and Whispers of Shadows, are now available. Book 4, The Royal Creed, should arrive in March/April 2015. Book 5, The Order of Kings, is under way, and book 6 is also in process. Look for books 1 and 2 to be available here soon. They are currently available on Amazon.
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.
Life has taught him to never take himself too seriously because that just takes all of the fun out it.
