Who is Ced Pharaoh?
Ced Pharaoh was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. A lifelong bookworm; his earliest favorites were comic books/graphic novels, mysteries (Encyclopedia Brown, Sherlock Holmes etc), thrillers, poetry, non-fiction biographies and sci-fi/fantasy! But it was a book called The Legend of Tarik by Walter Dean Myers that sparked him to write his own fantasy/sci-fi stories.
Throughout the years, he’s used his love of photography and writing in various positions and opportunities to create bios, media releases, advertising copy and voice-overscripts. His blog, 360BEYOND is where he highlights indie artists and other creative ideas.
Ced has written a few comic book scripts that haven’t seen the light of day, yet :). A verse from his Black Sci-Fi Fantasy poetry piece entitled, SANKOFA can be read in the comic book series, SANKOFA GUARD published by James “Mase” Mason.
In 2012, he published the collection of dark fantasy poetry, Watch The Shadows: darkfantasypoetry.
In, 2015, His cyberfunk short story, Edge Of Innocence was published in The City: A CyberFunk Anthology, published by MVMedia Publishing.
In 2021, under his company NKOSI MEDIA LL, he published the comic book project, The Great Force. This is the first project under NKOSI MEDIA LLC and was created by his son, Zion.
Ced is working on his series, GLYPHX | The Urban Mage to be released in 2022.
Married in front of thousands at The African Festival Of Arts, he resides in Chicago, Illinois with his Wife, Nicole and Son, Zion.
