About the Author
Dozens of books flowed from his bottomless well of inspiration, but it was not until college that he wrote his pivotal work. "Unicorn Fall" was a game changer in the genre portraying unicorns not only as horses with horns, but as thinking, feeling creatures of mystery. This riveting tale follows the trials and tribulations of Nectar the Barbarian and his trusty companion, Acidophilus as they seek to defeat the vile sorcerer, Lactose the Intolerant. It was this novel that first attracted the attention of famed literary agent, Tanya Denstein, who, after 37 drinks, signed McSterlingthong as a client. Under her careful tutelage, R.L.'s next book, "The League of Ultra-ordinary Personages" was published.
Decades later, with hundreds of genre bending novels, books to movie and screenplays under his belt, R.L. McSterlingthong became America's premier fantasy writer. A highly sought after convention and talk show guest, McSterlingthong appeared at thousands of conventions.
R.L. had an abiding love for his car. Working with his mechanic, Klaus, he rebuilt his 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass adding internal fry cookers and the finest Corinthian leather brake pads. This created his car's signature aroma plume of "burger and fries".
RL spent over forty-three years practicing Wun-beg-eh, an ancient Canadian martial art that relies on echo location and could often be seen sprinting through the streets of Seattle at 2 A.M. in his traditional ceremonial "invisibility ninja" garb shouting out his echo locating bleats.
An avid fencer, R.L. designed and built over 2000 fences in the Puget Sound. As with many fantasy novelists, he was a trained animal psychiatrist and worked tirelessly to assist horses coping with Feline Leukemia and gout.
R.L. had many homes but spent most of his time in his lair beneath a power sub-station in downtown Seattle.
