Meet the Author: Tom Kirkbride

Who: Tom Kirkbride

When: Tuesday, August 9, 2011 @4pm

Where: Tabby Theater, Central Library

What: Author Tom Kirkbride will be here to talk about his sci-fi surfing adventure series Gamadin, as well as what it takes to be an author and insights into the creative writing process.

About Gamadin:
Sixteen-year old Harlowe Pylott and Matt Riverstone are body surfing the gnarliest waves of the new century when their fun is interrupted by a yacht capsizing off the Newport coast. After rescuing the famous movie star Simon Bolt and the half-alien socialite Leucadia Mars from certain death, Fate sends them on the greatest ride of their lives.

Robobs and the undog are only the beginning! Dakadude killers have swooped down from the heavens looking for the galaxy's most powerful weapon: an ancient Gamadin spaceship named Millawanda. If the Daks cannot capture Millawanda, they will kill her while she is still weak and unprotected . . . along with the Earth and anyone else who gets in their way. If you think finding an ancient spaceship in the middle of the desert is cool, wait till you get a load of what Harlowe and his friends dig up . . . And it still works!!!

About Tom: Tom Kirkbride grew up on the beaches of Southern California where the location of Book I, Gamadin: Word of Honor of his GAMADIN saga, begins. Tom was a lifeguard in college at La Jolla, California, and is an avid bodysurfer, skier, world traveler, and artist. All the artwork on the book website is his own, including the front covers of this books. His GAMADIN series evolved from his love of sci-fi adventure and the desire to write a thrill-packed, character-driven saga for young adults he wanted his kids to read. Today, Tom lives in the San Diego area. His daughter, Lara, attends an east coast college.

His teenage, Southern California heroes have captured the hearts of young readers across the nation. When he is not at his computer writing his next GAMADIN installment, he is visiting classrooms across the country, engaging his young audiences in the fun of writing adventure novels.
