Tom (WordWulf) Sterner began to sing to his fellow child prisoners in the West Denver Housing Projects in the '60s. He spent the '70s and '80s howling his lyrics in rock 'n roll whiskey bars. He found passion in friction, the guttural growl of his Harley Davidson Hawg and the monster men he rode with. Between prison and Big Brother Deals he watched them all disappear. This poor boy (Momma was a Catholic; Daddy was a drunk) has found his voice and lends it to a vision - a tomorrow when his Children won't be goose-stepped and prodded into Daddy/Boy money wars. Sterner has been extensively published in independent literary magazines and online including Howling Dog Press/Omega, Skyline Literary Review, and The Storyteller. In 2003 he edited the English translation of Hameed Al-Qaed’s ‘Noise of Whisper’. He is winner of the Marija Cerjak Award for Avant-Garde/Experimental Writing and was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2006 and 2008. He edited the Arabic to English translation of the poets of Bahrain, ‘Pearl, Dreams of Shell’ which was published in 2007. His first novel, ‘Madman Chronicles: The Warrior’ (ISBN# 1-59286-793-6), is available at his website: http://pages.prodigy.net/sterner-howe or www.PublishAmerica.com .

The poor boy understands; that awful thing he was doing, fighting and singing in that mortar brick compound at ten years old; 'it' is what he is bound to do until it follows him on down.
