Damian Maximus is an experimental author, exploring the use of style and genre in storytelling. He writes because it makes sense. After all, what better way is there to gain understanding than through the art of storytelling?
Based out of the UK, Damian started his writing career in 2016 with the publication of his first novel, Crownless Kings. An exploration in how life would differ if our socioeconomic structure were reversed, Crownless Kings follows the life of Nick as he seeks to climb down the corporate ladder. It is a true riches-to-rags story.
The following year, Damian worked with Culture Honey magazine to produce the serialised novel, The Romance of Unconnected Lives. The Romance
(for short) is a love letter to the big city and follows the lives of two individuals who go about their lives, almost meeting.
The next year was a little quiet for Damian, writing-wise, with most of his time taken up by his Masters program at the University of Oxford.
Then in 2019 he published his third novel, Barry the Rogue Baguettiere.
A comedy of serious frivolity, Barry the Rogue Baguettiere
is for anybody who thinks novels have a tendency of taking themselves too seriously.
