Author Biography

Stus Rollins was born in Yorkshire, England, where he spent his childhood with his older brother and younger sister. In his late teens he moved to London, where he built a life for himself as a session guitar player working with artists such as Generation X, Driving South, Seal, Hollywood Beyond and Larry Carlton (among others).

He also worked in stage management and later on in event management and production for clients such as Terence Trent Darby, Curiosity Killed the Cat, Trouble Funk, Stereo MCs, Earth Wind & Fire, Madonna, George Michael, BB King, Nina Simone and many more. Music has always been his passion and constant companion. Rollins refined his guitar playing technique arduously by emulating those who influenced him the most, players such as Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Frank Zappa. He studied Jazz and music theory at Lambeth College and advanced modern electric guitar at the Guitar Institute in Shepard’s Bush.
Expanding life.
Rollins started writing his debut novel in 1998, when inspiration came to him in the form of ZON. A philanthropist at heart, Rollins was always on a quest to find the right vehicle through which to express his concerns about humankind, why violence and religion continue to dominate human culture and where we as the human race are headed.

Zon: Reflections of an Alien by Stus Rollins is about Zon, an alien entity with his own spacecraft that was allowed to travel beyond the Metaverse. As an Intergalactic Garbage Collector he traveled through space and time searching for rubbish. Rarely did he find anything that truly interested him until he witnessed what he believed to be the birth of a new universe. After reporting his discovery he was told it was off limits. But his curiosity was insatiable and he returned to the forbidden universe and patiently watched as the universe expanded, cooled and matured. He witnessed life form on one special planet and decided to explore it further, but in order to do that Zon had to become one with it. He became a tiny microbe within a membrane and then he was born. He became man. He grew up and explored the planet gathering knowledge and wisdom. The people were violent and barbaric so he attempted to guide them and share his wisdom. He tried to teach them love, hope, and peace. His words became sacred but were a threat to the establishment, who captured him and nailed him to a cross where he died. So begins the tale of Zon: Recollections of an Alien.

Many have long thought God was an alien or space creature as there are many scriptures that can be interpreted in that manner. Scripture has references to a chariot of fire that rises in the air carrying off Elijah. Could the Messiah be a creature like Zon? Stus Rollins has created a fascinating tale that will cause readers to ponder and question their own theories. I was mesmerized by the actions and reactions of Zon and the Earthlings. Stus Rollins is a talented writer and has successfully created an interesting and plausible plot with a fascinating and likable protagonist.
