About the Author

The pseudonym "Parish V. Damone" is an artistic expression of the author's real name (Victor Damone McClendon) and his stage name (M. C. Parish) of the 1990's hip-hop duo "Surrender" on Mobo Records in New Orleans. He also went by the name "M. C. V8" on his solo debut album entitled "Big Tyme" on Regal Records in Baton Rouge.

He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but later moved with his mother to Louisiana and graduated from Morgan City High School in 1984, which was the same year he entered college at Southern University in Baton Rouge. He studied at Southern from 1984 to 1987 and was a star performer in the marching band there known around the world as the "Human Jukebox."

Mr. McClendon is a U.S. veteran who received an honorable discharge in 1995 after serving eight years in the army. In the year 2000, he graduated ITI Technical College and began a lucrative career in designing and building control panels used in the control rooms of major oil plants throughout the Gulf region. Tragically, due to false testimony brought against him, he is now a first time offender at Angola serving life. He thanks you for all the encouragement and prayers he's received and wishes to convey a message of deep appreciation to his many loyal readers. More great adventures from The Galactic Island series are coming your way!
