About A.D. Hyde, in his own words…

Anthony is a second-generation Italian who grew up on the cobbled streets of Manchester…well…when he says on, he really means close by…in a house. He spent most of his childhood watching Sci-Fi/Fantasy movies and fishing for newts and sticklebacks in the local canal. He dreamt of going to university, meeting and marrying the girl of his dreams, settling down to have a family and living happily ever after…and of course becoming an astronaut with magical powers.
