Christopher Mannino has spent a liftetime dreaming and reading. He studied mythology and literature both in America and at Oxford. Growing up with adventure and fantasy stories filled with magic and imagination fueled him to create stories of his own.
Mannino's first novel, School of Deaths, began with a semester abroad at Oxford. On one side-trip, he became stranded on the Cornish coast, by Tintagel, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Following a sleepless night above a noisy pub he climbed to a rocky peninsula to watch the dawn. Feeling completely alone, and attacked by winds from every direction as he clung to a cliff, Mannino imagined a character isolated in a strange world, attacked and bullied.
The Scythe Wielder's Secret is a series of Young Adult fantasy novels, which address issues of bullying, sexism, and social justice, all in a rich epic fantasy adventure world. For adults, he has released Pillars of Chaos, a science thriller perfect for fans of Dan Brown. He is currently working on several new fantasy novels.
