Since he was a young boy, Bryon Smith has had a fascination with the paranormal. After the death of a neighbor, his father bought the house next door and Bryon soon learned the house was haunted by the spirit of the deceased. In 1970 he had a very close encounter with a UFO and so began a life long quest to find the answers relating to these things.
It was this fascination and his warm memories of his childhood on his grandfather's farm that inspired him to apply some of his knowledge of these subjects into The Adventures of Megan Martin and the Ember Reign novel series.
Over the years, Bryon has held many unusual occupations, including farming, construction work, musician, scuba diving salvage, boat dock design and construction, welder, airport lineman, and professional videographer. He and his family began a new series of television shows called Spooky Places. He adapted one of his novels to screenplay format.
Today, Bryon lives with his wife and editor, Dawn. Their oldest daughter Laura, was the inspiration and "technical consultant" for the Megan Martin character; and his youngest daughter, Kristy (model, actress, musician). He used their images for the characters Megan Martin / Ember Reign and Brianna the nosey neighbor girl on the covers of the novels.
The Megan Martin novels were intended for young readers from 8 to 13. These novels contain more things of intrest to people of this age though he has fans and readers in their 80s.
The Ember Reign novels are loosly based on the Megan Martin novels having the same main characters a few years olders than they were in the Megan Martin novels. The intensity of the Ember Reign novels is greater and things happen much faster. These novels are PG-13 L.V. for readers 13 and older.
