Adrian Bott is a lifelong gamer and storyteller. He's helped dozens of people tell their stories over the years - having written and collaborated on over fifty titles under ten different pseudonyms - but Axel & BEAST is the first series he's published under his own name. As a teenager, he worked for video-gaming magazines as a professional adventure-solver. His dream of writing for a living was side-tracked for ten years while he ran a bookshop specialising in folklore, the paranormal and magic. He eventually tired of the peculiar customers though, and sensibly chose to return to fantasy, as a full-time writer of roleplaying games and computer games.
