Introduce Yourself : This is me. Really. by Kelly Cheek

This is me. Really.

My name is Kelly Cheek. I'm an author who formerly went by the pseudonym Haydn Grey. I've given up the alias, though. Decided to come clean and go straight.

I've self-published six novels so far, starting with the Facebook trilogy (Profile, Poked, and Private Messages), a set of modern stories (for adults) set against the backdrop of Facebook. I followed that up with All We Hold Dear, a historical novel alternating between modern day Manitou Springs, Colorado and the 1800s, up to, during and after the Trail of Tears. The sequel to that is Trial by Fire, also alternating between modern day and a historical narrative spanning the entire twentieth century. Finally, The Lost Colony finally reveals what ACTUALLY happened to the settlement of Roanoke.

All of those were released under the name Haydn Grey. Novel number seven, JackSimile and the Phantom Fury, is about to be released under my real name. It's part sci-fi and part historical fiction, alternating between modern day and the post World War II years. (In case you hadn't noticed, I'm particularly partial to historical fiction.)

I have another completed novel that I'm not sure what I want to do with yet.

I'm currently working on a novel that is entirely historical fiction, following real-life characters John Chivington and Silas Soule, and fictional character Emerson Granger, leading up to the Sand Creek Massacre.

On a typical day, you might find me chain-smoking and drinking myself into a stupor while I pound out my latest literary masterpiece which will be summarily ignored until after my death in a secluded cabin in Montana, where I'll dash off one last note in which I'll excoriate all my critics before blowing my brains out with a shotgun, after which I'll be hailed as an underappreciated literary genius.

Okay, I don't smoke, I don't get drunk, I don't own a gun, and I'm a generally nice (non-suicidal) guy.

And I write good stories.
