SHANE S. ALMOND
Meet the author of the young adult series The Last Child of Asgard, and the creator of the beloved character Nox the Fox, Shane S. Almond.
Shane S. Almond started his writing journey at the tender age of thirteen, where he would sit in his dormitory at school, writing fantastical short stories in his jot pad.
Shane always loved fantasy stories and dove head-first into mythology. He grew up watching old VHS tapes of Clash of The Titans, Hercules, and Jason and The Argonauts, to name a few, but instead of just enjoying them as forms of entertainment, Shane instead wanted to create his own myths, own legends, and thus Maximus Turner was born.
He released his first novel: The Last Child of Asgard: Delta in 2012, but immediately recalled it for extensive edits. The book was then re-released in 2015.
Shane released another book in the series: The Last Child of Asgard: Alpha the following year, and is now penning graphic novel scripts for both stories.
Inspired by his young autistic son, Shane has decided to try his hand at writing children’s books alongside his newest passion of comic book writing.
Shane lives in Essex, in the United Kingdom, with his fiancée Jaynie, son Jake, and their young dog Benji.
