Author Biography

Stephen Kunkler is a mentally disabled author who enjoys the adventures of writing and reading. His works attempt to stray far and away from all worn paths and are generally influenced by his Religious background, among other things. He has won awards such as The Official Sons of the American Revolution Award, even before he graduated from New Lexington in 2012.

Soul Release, his first book, is inspired by both Anime/Manga and Religion . Also in his catalog: Soul Prison (a prequel to Soul Release, delving into the lives of two brothers on separate paths and struggling to survive), The Ring of Lucifer (told from the perspective of a well-known entity in the Christian Religion), and The Ancients and the innocent (staring a dinosaur and a penguin, who team up for a rather confusing journey).

He is not done writing yet!

The Ring of Lucifer is a Christian fantasy short story written by Stephen Kunkler. Lucifer doubted that he was created by an Infinite Father; he had begun to doubt that such as being as God even existed. And while he was indeed God’s best work, Lucifer had come to see himself as his own crowning glory. When their rebellion was utterly dashed to pieces, Lucifer believed that would be the end of him, but he awoke on earth as Satan.

His new incarnation was unaware of his surroundings and cast about him to make sense of the place where he found himself. He discovered the humans God had placed there and decided to investigate them. He also learned of the rings he would need to complete his assault upon heaven. He could do this. First, he’d take care of the two humanoids the Creator had installed. That wouldn’t pose too much of a problem. He would set one off against the other -- and then destroy each of them utterly.

The Ring of Lucifer is a compelling and thought-provoking look into the character of Lucifer from a quest framework. I enjoyed following the ring quests and seeing how they were a part of Satan’s strategy for overthrowing the Infinite Father. Kunkler also presents an absorbing and chilling look into Satan’s reasons for being and his justifications for his ethical shortcomings. Kunkler’s plot is intricate and finely honed, and his writing style works quite well for this genre. The Ring of Lucifer is highly recommended.
