Writer Biography - Stephan Bellamy

Nothing brings me more joy than scribbling my pen across paper. Not the intricacies of an artist but the crafting of words to become a lyrical architect. I published my first book only a month after graduating high school. It's a science fiction book, Erasing Earth, with ideas that have bloomed in my mind since the eighth grade. I still relish the science fiction realm to this day, and I owe my dues to my father and his introducing me to Metroid and other good science fiction classics.
