About the Author

Greg Walsh has walked upright down a path of resistance for most of his life. The discovery of BMX bike riding and hardcore music in early adolescence derailed the train of convention and sparked a love affair with the underground that continues to burn strong. Channeling the creativity that had been misguidedly relegated to youthful mischief and wrong-righting, Greg immersed himself in counter-culture. Through patience and perseverance, he began to make marks of his own within it, and has never looked back.

Writing intertwined itself with all his successes and setbacks, and has served as chronicle to the strange and often dangerous occurrences that were never far behind. Greg's non-fiction storytelling has been both catharsis and corruptor; if any resolution was found, it has never been without shining harsh light into dark corners, and being made to look.

In fiction, Greg creates characters that we either want to run towards and embrace or run screaming from, appeasing the notion that sometimes what appalls us on one hand, appeals to us in-kind; the strongest responses in his life have been evoked by things in equal part good and evil.

Theft of the Age, Volume 1 is Greg's first full-length work of fiction. He has also published 'War of Attrition'- a non-fiction anthology filled with stories, letters to real and imaginary people, and unnerving cultural observations.

Driven by discontent, Greg continues to scheme, write, subvert, struggle, and progress, and aims to provoke many others to do the same.

He currently lives and works on the east side of Rochester, New York.

Walsh's novel enthralls the reader with a story of two young people who refuse to capitulate to society's demands. Through a split person narrative (with precise, yet lush writing), Walsh is able to perfectly capture the mindset of his two characters. The escalation of their two lives interweaving leaves the reader tethered to the page. A fantastic start to what is sure to be a riveting series.

'Theft of the Age' pulled me in from the very first words. The chatacters are so well written you can feel their presance come off the pages. The plot resonates with you as you are both compelled and shocked by what unfolds. The author masterfully interweaves the lives of the two main characters and creates such anticipation of the unfolding story you cant help but palpably feel what the characters are going through. The pages go by so quickly, when I reached the end, I immediately wanted more! I can't wait for the second book!
