It was at the tender age of 7 that an interconnection of cells and organs called Mike Robinson (then Mikey) penned, or pencilled, his first story. Called "Aliens In My Backyard!", it went on to become a runaway bestseller, topping international charts (or maybe that just happened in his imagination, too).
Although he has since worked as an independent videogame producer and cinematographer, writing has always been the focal point of his creative life, although to him the phrase "creative life" sounds a tad redundant. His first professional sale, a short story entitled "The Hand of Spudd", appeared in Storyteller Magazine when he was 19. Since then, his work has appeared in a dozen magazines, anthologies and podcasts. In 2006, he was one of five guys comprising GLAWS, the Greater L.A. Writers Society, which has since become the second largest writers' group in Southern California. He's the editor of "Literary Landscapes", the society's publication. See more at: www.glaws.org
"Skunk Ape Semester", his debut novel, was released early 2012 by Solstice Publishing and was a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. His follow-up, the supernatural mystery novel "The Green-Eyed Monster", debuted October 2012 from Curiosity Quills Press. His existential horror novel "The Prince of Earth" is also available.

Right within the first few pages of this story Martin has shot and killed John. The question is WHY!? It really worked to draw me in as a reader. I was intrigued to figure out the mystery!
This story was a true blend of a ton of different genres its not just one. Mystery, Horror, and some science fiction all play a part in this story what will surely knock your socks off and make your head spin. It was a very crazy out there ride that I just couldn't put down. I really loved how the story played out within the backstory of the two boys and the weaving of the characters and plot.
If you love this kind of book this is def. one that I would pick up it won't do you wrong!
