When an adolescent Kevin Berry handed in a 50,000 word murder mystery for his high school English assignment, his long-suffering teacher accepted the stack of papers with poorly masked horror. Today, Berry’s work is generally met with a stronger reception, including multiple independent writing awards and glowing critical reviews.
Berry’s fiction is known for its high stakes and dramatic action, but his stories are drawn from his own life experience. In 2010 and 2011, Berry lived through the devastating earthquakes that struck Christchurch in New Zealand, forever changing how residents saw their city. His personal struggle with Bipolar Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome inspired the characters in his novels Stim and Kaleidoscope, described as powerful and authentic representations.
When Berry isn’t raising his two sons, reading other indie authors or working as a copy editor, the writer can be found hunched over his laptop, face scrunched and fingers flying well into the early hours.

Leroux’s classic novel The Phantom of the Opera to present-day Paris…
While attending an auction of music memorabilia, young soprano Christine Delacroix
bids on some letters written by another young soprano, Christine Daaé, who lived
during the 19th century. Here she meets the handsome Compte Rezso Esterhazy, who
immediately sets out to court her. Despite his attentions, Christine becomes obsessed
with the Daaé letters and her namesake’s mysterious “Angel of Music”—a masked man
who lived beneath the Paris Opera House.
Seemingly immortal and frozen in time, the Phantom is condemned to life below the
opera house and in the shadows…until Christine Delacroix auditions for a minor role in
Faust. Convinced the Christine from his past has been returned to him, he sets out for
her to have the lead female role. He visits her in her dressing room to give her singing
lessons, all the while remaining hidden from view. Insanely jealous over Christine’s
budding romance with the Compte, the Phantom abducts her and takes her to his
underground lair, where the singing lessons continue. Only this time they are far more
depraved and sexual in nature.
