A terrifying storm lashed Sydney’s North Shore on June 21st, 1975. Boats were swamped and
jetties smashed in what some claim was the worst storm to hit the coast for four decades.
In the midst of the chaos, Luke Romyn’s parents battled to get to a hospital to birth their baby boy.
Normally their idyllic island cottage was a near-paradise; on this night the journey to the mainland
in their tiny boat seemed like a passage through Hell. Their son was born near midnight, but part of
the storm never left him.
When Luke reached fifteen years of age his father was killed while working in Fiji, leaving Luke and
his mother alone. At times, the only things to get Luke through his grief were the stories playing out
in his head, endless fantastical tales of lands both distant and near, with characters who would
protect him from any tragedy.
At eighteen, Luke began working in nightclubs as a bouncer. Unbeknownst to him, this was simply
the first step on a trek which would dictate much of his life from that point on. For over two
decades since, Luke has worked in the security industry; from bouncing in some of Australia's
roughest pubs and nightclubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the
overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers. He's been bodyguard for celebrities internationally and
chased feral pigs and snakes from jungle sets on Steven Spielberg productions. Luke has traveled
the globe and spent time in some of the most amazing locations the world has to offer.
This experience fuels the Australian writer’s ever-expansive imagination, and he pours it into his
novels, combining fact with fiction, history with fantasy, delivering engrossing action-thrillers which
leave fans gasping for more. Luke’s quick wit has seen his social media following explode, and he is
currently one of the most prolific social media celebrities in Australia, with several hundred
thousand followers across the internet.
Publishing his first book, The Dark Path, in 2009 saw it voted in the top 10 horror novels of that
year, even though Luke denies ever intending the novel to be classed as horror. Luke Romyn has
gone on to become a USA Today best selling author and is now one of the most popular indie
authors in the ever-growing ebook market. He personally completes everything from cover art to
final formatting, working tirelessly with editors to refine the best stories possible for his readers.
The results are international bestsellers you're certain to love diving into. Over 550,000 readers
can't be wrong.
