Rob Kaay is a contemporary sci-fi / fantasy writer who is coming into his own. As a professional touring musician on the road signed to a major American record label, Rob would read books by incredible writers such as Chuck Palahniuk, Hunter S. Thompson, Bret Easton Ellis and Anne Rice. Once his decade-long touring rock-star lifestyle ran its course, Rob began to write his own story that had been rattling around inside his head.

Rob has just released his first science fiction novel called Silverbirch; A Tear in the Fabric of the Night Sky. It’s a story about a young man named Nudge who, as a child, finds a mushroom with a red lightning bolt image naturally built in to its black-gilled underbelly. Little does Nudge know that finding the mushroom has been predetermined. It is Nudge’s destiny, as controlled by a higher power watching over him. You see, Nudge has been chosen as the savior of this world and the next and the mushroom with the red lightning bolt is the only way to open a gateway to connect both worlds. When Nudge reaches the ripe age of thirty – he’s asked to fulfill his destined role. The only problem is, once he realizes what is really going on, he’s not sure if he can give up the love of his life (his childhood stripper soul-mate) and take on the weight of two worlds’ problems all on his own.

Silverbirch; A Tear in the Fabric of the Night Sky was self-published at the end of 2009 and cracked the Amazon Top 1000 in its first week of release. It is available in Hardcover, Paperback and Kindle formats from You will also find free podcast versions of the novel from the iTunes music store and from Rob’s website. Rob narrates and composes most of the music for the Silverbirch podcasts himself.

Rob looks forward to meeting all his fans at the upcoming Supanova Melbourne Expo in 2010.
