More About the Author

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 Book Series (which now includes Books I thru IV, 2 short stories, and a theatrical CD) 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. In 2012 the Renaissance Learning Center added the Gamadin Series to its Accelerated Reader Program for students across the country.

In 2013 Tom released the theatrical CD version of Book I. The 2-hour long adventure explodes with the Audio Comics Company of 16 professional actors and special effects. After hearing the first 30 seconds of the CD, you will understand why people are raving about this release. One librarian commented at a recent book event, "Why didn't they do this for Potter?" It's that good.

Tom continues his fast-paced adventure series with Book V: Gamadin: Core which he hopes to complete sometime late 2014. "That's my biggest complaint," Tom hears constantly from his fans. "Where's Book V?"

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. Today Tom lives in Cottage Grove, Oregon with his wife Nancy, 3 dogs, six cats and 4 horses.

Be sure and drop by Tom's website for the latest Gamadin Series Book Events!

Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed seeing how they became the team that they are now. They made it off Earth and landed on Mars with it being programed to go their first. They have no idea how they are going to survive and get back to Earth.
Before they left earth Harlow picked up General Gunn and took him to sick bay. They were so impressed by the ship and that they destroyed the other ships but they were only 3 High School kids, movie star that was spoiled and his bodyguard. All of a sudden General Gunn puts in appearance and takes over and starts treating them like dirt and ran them ragged everyday they got stronger and learned more and he pushed them more and more. Made them sleep in the same room, eat the same thing, if one got punished they all did. They hate General Gunn. They keep trying at night to find the bridge but no matter what they do they cant find it again. On Mars if they did not have their special suits they could not live on the planet. Why they were being trained to be soldiers thier families back on Earth were being hasselled by the goverment. IRS audits, houses seized lost jobs because the goverment wanted the ship so the President could stay in office forever and controll the whole planet. The Goverment told their families that they stole something from them and killed a lot of soldiers.
They did not know what happened to them and where they okay till one day they figured out how to get on the web and email them from Mars.
Than they had to protect their families from far away.
The book is long and defintly one you will want to read to find out what happens next.

Format: Hardcover
After reading the author's amusing first book "Gamadin: Word of Honor" I was compelled to read "Gamadin: Mons" which I honestly enjoyed even more than the first. Kirkbride's style proved to be a real page turner taking the reader from July 1947 to the present in an entertaining and fast paced way. The detailed descriptions of each passage combined with bringing the characters to life allowed me to relate to each event and connect with the appealing characters in this journey through space and time.

By having just enough Sci-fi, without getting overwhelmed with technical terminology, Mons gives mass appeal to a wide audience of readers. The fact that "the good guys" triumph over seemingly insurmountable odds, yet do not fall into the cliche of " happily ever after", brings originality to the text. I could see Kirkbride's work translate well to the big screen with his visually stimulating scenes.

The ending, which leaves loose ends and peaks the reader's curiosity, will definitely have me counting down the days until the release of third book.

Format: Hardcover
After reading Book I of the Gamadin series at the recommendation of a friend, I found myself anxious for the release of Book II. I'm not typically a Science Fiction reader, but Book I changed this for me with its interesting characters and an exciting plot. Book II continues the character development and explodes with action packed adventure as the author brings readers back and forth from our heroes in training on the surface of Mars to the chaotic activity caused by their discovery and disappearance back on Earth. If you're looking for a fun and easy to read book that will expand your imagination, this book- this series is for you. The author seems to take great care in the development of his characters and describing the futuristic tools that they use to survive. You'll find yourself with a detailed vision of everything and everyone described in the book. It isn't often that the second book in a series beats the standard set by the first, but this might be an exception. Great read. Can't wait for Book III!
