Trevor R. Fairbanks was born 2/18/1975 in Southern California. An avid skateboarder in his youth, after breaking his arm too many times he took up writing as a "safer" hobby. At the age of thirteen he met Ray Bradbury who was kind enough to give him the advice "Write Every Day." He followed this advice for the next thirty years. After receiving rejection letters from every mainstream and independent publisher in America, he self-published his first novel "Scarwynd" under his own imprint, Raw Youth Press. Later, he began Telstar Literature to showcase mature works. When he isn't writing he enjoys playing surf guitar, watching giant monster movies and collecting comic books.
