Marcus De Storm was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK. After
moving with his family to Seacroft (South) at the age of four, it was the
growing up around this once huge residential housing estate that gave way to
vast amounts of both inspirations and fears; inspiration in character building,
locations and new ideas of storytelling, while the fears were to be lived in
his real life upbringing and first hand experiences.
Writing his Story-Short at the age of 10, it was "Blue
Angel: Hero of the Future" that drove the young Poet Writer into creating
his own style of Crime, Gore, horror pieces. Linking the real experiences of
incidents and integrating them into stories, as well as pasting unique names of
his characters and locations, too, into future works of fiction.
At the age of 12, Marcus passed his English O'Level exam
while in the care of the Local Authorities. The publication of "Prisoner
of Love" poem in the local newspaper brought an enormous amount of
attention to the young writer in 1982, while at the same time his very own
problems in life had it taken away through the strict guidelines of
By the age of 17, having accumulated more than three hundred
pieces of poetry, the actual number of Story-Shorts had surpassed twenty five,
with "Rainbow Colours" being the most highlighted and yet private of
When released from a Full Care order in the summer of 1985,
Marcus' search for normality became speckled, tainted and eventually dashed by
the Rebel that had been bored into his nature. The whole lifestyle of fluctuating
acts against a strong system suddenly stopped at the age of 21, when, with the
reflection of his Writing and Submitting of Poetry earned him prestigious
awards, accolades and a power struggle in which would bring an exhaustion of
his Writing ability.
The past was loosely placed in the past and his gathering of
previously written works brought out of the dusty closet, and through several
years of editing he prepared less than half the stories for submission to
Publishing Houses in both the UK and America - unfortunately, refusals were
frequent and payments for those accepted very small.
Less than a year after meeting his wife, Carol, they moved
to Rhyl, North Wales, to start a fresh life and marry. On April 15th 2000, they
were married, but found that they had something missing - children - and so
left their coastal home to return back to Leeds.
In April 2012 The Brotherhood of the Realms was released on
Kindle, then very shortly afterwards the novel was released on Create Space in
Paperback. Being the key novel to a series of Story-Shorts titled "On A
Storyteller's Night", it was one month later that the first volume was
released on both eBook and Paperback. Further to this two other novels were
released on eBook which contain some of the most personal Poetry pieces.
Today, Marcus De Storm concentrates on writing more than
ever, with more than 50 Blog-sites, various websites, a high presence status on
well-known Niche Sites and a very aggressive submitter to local newspapers on
the issues that matter most to him and his family.
New releases by Marcus De Storm include "On A
Storyteller's Night Book 2: The Sanctum" due to be available on Kindle and
Paperback very soon, as well as "On A Storyteller's Night Book 3"
which is due its release on the 1st of August 2012. Further releases will be
announced on his personal site "Authorborn", an idea derived from his
addiction to playing the Xbox fantasy game "Skyrim" where the character
is of a "Dragonborn" by destiny. The website can be accessed by going
