Gareth S. Young was born and raised in Scotland, but has now lived for more than 15 years in the American Midwest. This has played havoc with his accent.

In 2010, he published his first full length story, a mystery/suspense novel called Monsters.

In April 2013, his short story "The Orange-headed Serpent" was published in the Orange Karen Anthology.

In 2016, he published his second full length novel, The Wolves of Dynamo, part one of an audacious YA urban fantasy series.

Other upcoming works include Persephone, the much anticipated follow up to Monsters, and part two of the Dynamo City saga.

I don't think many believe that argument completely, but there's a lot of self-satisfaction in the idea of being in
