AUTHOR

Gary A. Ballard

At the age of eleven, Mr. Ballard began creating his own fictional worlds and inhabiting those worlds with eccentric characters. As an artist, graphic designer, web site designer, musician and author, he has spent decades enumerating a unique evolving vision of an absurd universe. His first four novels comprise a cyberpunk series called The Bridge Chronicles starring the amoral fixer of future Los Angeles, Artemis Bridge. The Bridge Chronicles in turn is one slice of cohesive universe that began as a pen-and-paper roleplaying game. Gary has also released a series of novellas based on the Cthulhu Mythos made famous by H.P. Lovecraft called The Stepping Stone Cycle. The final two books of the series have just been released. In addition, he has written two unsold screenplays based on the Bridge Chronicles series, and plans to adapt The Stepping Stone Cycle for television.

Mr. Ballard currently lives with his wife and dogs in the capitol of Mississippi, Jackson, where he continues to write, blog, compose music and play video games.
