Ahmad Ardalan was born in Baghdad in 1979. At the age of two, he moved with his parents to Vienna, Austria, where he spent most of his childhood and underwent his primary studies. After his father's diplomatic mission finished at the end of 1989, he returned to Iraq, where he continued his studies and graduated from the University of Dentistry. As a result of the unstable political, military, social, and economic conditions in his home country, Ahmad decided to leave Iraq and move to the UAE. After facing difficulties to pursue his career in dentistry, he opted to pursue employment in the business world. Since then, Ahmad Ardalan has held several senior roles within the pharmaceutical and FMCG industries, throughout much of the Middle East. His early childhood in a mixed cultural environment, as well as his world travels, increased his passion for learning about cultures of the world and inspired him to pen The Clout of Gen, his first novel. After eleven years of being away, Ahmad returned to Baghdad in January 2013 on a visit that was full of mixed emotions. Inspired by his trip to Iraq, he wrote his second novel, The Gardener of Baghdad.
Ahmad Ardalan did not stop there, as "Matt" his latest Short Story Thriller Series became available beginning 2015. The Gardener of Baghdad, opened readers' eyes to a different picture of the city they had heard of. With hope and love as his message, Ardalan released Baghdad: The Final Gathering.

But the Brian Lumley breakthrough came with the 1984 crafting of Necroscope®, a graphic horror featuring Harry Keogh as the man who speaks with the dead. Afterward came: Demogorgon, Dreamlands, and then a return to the man with dead speak, Harry Keogh. But there was yet another gap between Necroscope II and Necroscope III. But that's allright, for in the mean, we reaped: Wamphyri! Bestsellers in the USA, Lumley's books quickly accumulated one million sales with a lead toward two million. The success of previous Keogh-based works brough about the massive Lumley Vampire World Trilogy. It's a horror collection totaling over 3/4 million words. Thirteen countries and counting have now published, or are in the process of publishing these and other Lumley's novels and short story collections. In the US alone, Brian Lumley books have topped sales of over three million copies. When they're not travelling, the Lumleys keep house in Torquay, Devon, England...

Quote from about Vanessa Ravel home. "Writing my first novel wasn’t easy, but it was (mostly) fun. And as for the genre, I can attest that once you go underworld, you don’t come back. Much to the chagrin of my loved ones, I powered through terrible bouts of writer’s block. Sometimes it’s easy. And on days when I “just can’t”… I just stare at the ceiling."
