Rocky P Perry, rockyperry.com , was born in 1975 in Flintstone, Ga. Diagnosed with Dyslexia at the age of six, he spent the first years of his life learning in small a classroom away from his peers. He first learned to read on his own at the age of ten and was allowed to join his classmates in middle school. His struggles with reading left him without any ability to explore the world inside books like other readers. This gave him a drive to explore worlds in his mind. He loved to look at comic books and make up his own stories, which eventually led to him becoming a storyteller. Most of his life was spent as an artist, mostly a painter. For years he told his stories with a brush, unable to write his stories with the skill they required. As he got older, technology caught up with his disability. He was finally able to tell his stories and put them on paper with the help of speech to text software. This is when he wrote his first book, unpublished. After writing on several more projects, he published his first book, Luke Banderloft and the McFarven Pirates, book one of his current series. A story not unlike his own, but set in a world all his own. In 2013 he started production on a web series based on the Luke Banderloft series, lukebanderloft.com . Working with actors and crew local to Chattanooga and Trey Cook of Cook Box Productions, he hoped to create a film version of his book series that would show fantasy films can be done on a small budget. Episode one can be found at the #LukeBanderloft youtube channel starting Feb 1 of 2014.
