Timothy N. Stelly, Sr. is a poet, novelist, screenwriter and essayist from northern California. HUMAN TRIAL, the chilling tale of a thermal war initiated by extraterrestrials is his first novel, and is the beginning of a sci-fi trilogy that has elicited strong emotions and strong reviews. In 2010 the second part of the trilogy was published--HUMAN TRIAL II: ADAM'S WAR. The book picks up where HUMAN TRIAL left off, and centers on two battles for mankind's survival--one against alien invaders and another against a megalomaniac hell-bent on becoming the ruler of the new nation being built. The final part of the story is due in 2012.
Stelly has also written more than 400 essays for Useless-knowledge.com and e-zinearticles.com from social and political issues to film noir history. In 2006, he won first prize in the Pout-erotica poetry contest for his poem, "C'mon Condi." He has contributed several poetic pieces to Oysters & Chocolate and is currently working on rewrites of his first two novels, "Tempest In The Stone" and "The Malice Of Cain," which were "published" by Publishamerica and are being rewritten for future publication. He had just finished two more novels--a crime drama titled "Blanket of Authority," and an urban zombie tale, "The Undead."
He is a native of Northern, California, where he resides with his three youngest children, Dante, Kimberly and Lawrence.
