M.D. Massey is an urban fantasy author who loves to describe himself as the prototypical INTJ. Before he got into writing, he worked a range of jobs including security professional, business consultant, web designer, combat medic, cook, emergency room technician, truck driver, fitness trainer and martial arts instructor. Massey’s novels have been acclaimed for how they make the fantastic seem so realistic. This is probably because of his eclectic background which offers a wide range of rich experiences that he can draw upon when writing his fiction. This is evident in the relatable characters and believable words that he crafts. His writing has also been influenced by his reading of disaster and survival preparedness books. He also has a huge collection of martial arts manuals and guides that he amassed over the years that he spent teaching martial arts. Massey currently lives with his family in Austin Texas. When he is not writing or reading at the local coffee shop, he loves knife fighting with friends or pummeling inanimate objects in the garage.

Like many authors, M.D. Massey is a voracious reader and has admitted to buying too many books. He was indulged by his mother, a teacher that would let him pick out books whenever she took him to the store during his preschool years. Before he could even stand tall enough to see over the counter at the library, he was already reading the likes of “The Silmarillion” and Homer’s “Odyssey.” These days it is impossible for him to go into the bookstore and come out without a bunch of books. Given that he was an avid reader, it was almost inevitable that he would become an author. When he was in his twenties, one of his best friends that was a journalist encouraged him to try authorship though he suggested publishing a nonfiction work. By the time he was in his late thirties, he had several moderately successful nonfiction books to his name and thought why not write some fiction? It turned out to be quite a difficult endeavor and he had to read through a lot of books and take several courses on how to write fiction. During this time, he also wrote several manuscripts that he ended up abandoning. It was not until he read “Plot & Structure” by James Scott Bell that everything finally clicked. By December of 2013, he had published “Colin McCool and the Vampire Dwarf” and has never looked back since.

Massey has always been preoccupied with fairies ever since he was a child and read the “Cottingley Fairies” story. While he could tell that the photos were not real, he loved the idea of fairy folk lurking in the woods or in the neighborhood where he spent a lot of time. It was reading such novels that sparked his imagination and eventually led him to write short stories on the genre. When he finally decided to write his first novel, he was very certain that fairy folk had to be prominent characters. In fact, one of the earliest manuscripts that he abandoned featured a human fae hunter. As is the case with many beginner books, it was a horrible script but over time the idea he had gradually developed into the Vampire Dwarf and Colin McCool who would become the core of the bestselling “Junkyard Druid” novels. He was drawn to the genre since it was what he knew and what he read. Massey had read a lot of urban fantasy and still did even when he was working in his many odd jobs and when he started writing full time.

M.D. Massey’s “Junkyard Druid” introduces Colin McCool who also goes by the name of Junkyard Druid which he hates. While his last name is cool, he is not your stereotypical cool hunter like all the others in town. He has never owned or ridden a Harley, never run an occult bookstore and does not have a family fortune left to him from previous hunter forebears. What he does have is a curse that ruined his life as it has been Hell since the day the spell was cast on him. He is mentored by a heroin addict named Finn and makes his home in the local junkyard. But things have gotten even more complicated with a secretive group known as the Cold Iron Circle on his neck and Queen Maeve the local Fae threatening him into doing her dirty work. He is doing his best but he is in over his head in the business of retrieving Maeve’s pilfered magic rock. Meanwhile, he also has to help Belladonna his friend who is trying to resolve a series of murders that they suspect could have been committed by werewolves. He is so much involved in the murders and trying to get back the magic rock that his ghost girlfriend is cross with him. But he cannot think about failing relationships as he might not survive long enough to finish his freshman year of college.

In “Graveyard Druid” things are looking up for Colin McCool. But he still has to deal with a sentient and powerful magical artifact is residing in his skull and the curse of Tuatha De Danann the ancient sorceress. He has always been the optimist and is trying to see the silver lining in all his troubles. Colin thinks that since he has been forced right back into the world of the fairies he may just as well make himself useful. As a druid, he can make use of his limited talents for good which is why he decided to accept the position of vampire coven offered by Austin. His work involves cleaning out a ghost infestation that has been wreaking havoc at the local cemetery. Austin and his crew do not like the work or the heat and know that with McCool they can get the job done well and fast. It was an easy job for Colin as whacking a few ghouls and hiding the bodies for a fat fee was something he could do the whole day.

M.D. Massey’s “Moonlight Druid” is the story of the emotional, sexual and physical abuse against children that are anathema to most people. But there is a soulless and sick population out there who find pleasure in the buying and selling of children just as if they are ordinary merchandise. Colin McCool is not going to stand by as crimes are committed against children. He teams up with a local werewolf pack and is finally learning how to deal with his deadly and gruesome alter ego. But he is his own worst enemy as even as he needs to not only learn how to control his alter but he needs to master and confront it which is doubly hard. Even as he is dealing with his internal struggles he has to work to find the kidnappers who have just taken the only child of one of the most prominent men in the city. Meanwhile, he also has to protect himself from some cunning enemies he believes are in the werewolf pack that he teamed up with to help him deal with his personality issues. He is getting sneakier and smarter over time but will he have the smarts and strength to overcome the looming crisis? Only time will tell.
