Description

Johnny Depp--Hollywood bad boy? Rebel? Or simply misunderstood. His name and photo have been on the covers of the major entertainment 'zines and the tabloids for both his powerful portrayals and his eccentric exploits.

After making his film debut in A Nightmare on Elm Street, he shot into the hearts of the teen population in 1987 as Detective Tommy Hanson in the hit TV series 21 Jump Street. Never feeling comfortable with the teen idol mantle, he's since been very choosy about the roles he has accepted. From Cry-Baby to Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp puts an indelible stamp on the characters he portrays, and his performances have often been singled out.

Stone Wallace shows us a singularly sensitive man, who is passionate about his work, is selective about the films he puts his name to and fiercely guards his family and his private life. Johnny came from nothing to become one of the most sought-after names in Tinseltown, as well as a loving husband and father who is completely over the moon about his wife and children.

About the author

A Communications and Broadcasting graduate, Stone Wallace's career ambitions have taken him along many paths: actor, announcer, boxer, celebrity interviewer, advertising copywriter, and creative writing and media instructor. He is also the author of 12 books. While Stone has published stories in other genres, ranging from horror to history, he finds writing Westerns to be the most satisfying. It is a field he has appreciated and embraced since reading the classic stories of Louis L'Amour, whose works provide an escape back to a time when the lands were clean, heroes and villains were clearly defined and values were more straightforward and simple. It is a tradition of storytelling that Stone decided to follow. Denim Ryder is Stone s first Western for AVALON. He has completed his second book Montana Dawn, and is currently at work on future titles for AVALON. Stone currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada with his loving and supportive wife Cindy, who is also an author, as well as storyteller and children's entertainer.
