Book Series Description:

From their windows, balconies, and gardens, the residents of the land of Acre stare north at the ominous black clouds that crawl across their beloved skies, overshadowing their homes. Under the clouds, a darkness has befallen the majestic City of Lynn.

Within the city, a cornered Queen, once true and just, now plays a game of cat and mouse with the races of Acre. Each season, as the Queen fights for control, the ‘Unknowns’ from the North approach. With them comes the stench of evil, fear, and death.

But… there is hope. A lost legend now awakened.

A set of dormant orbs lay in the gnarled hands of an old man. One by one, the dull orbs spark and swirl to life. Somewhere within the City of Lynn, the scroll of equals remains hidden. It’s text, supplied by the gods, awaits the chosen who may one day save the land of Acre.

Or so the legend says.

Author Interview:

If you could put yourself as a character in your book, who would you be?

I would put myself as Dr Viktor. A bit grumpy, a bit moody, but a heart of gold. He also has a bit of mystery about him which keeps people guessing. If it wasn’t Dr Viktor, it would probably be Miles. I like to watch things around me from the sides rather than being in the centre of attention.

What advice would you give budding writers?

It is easy to get distracted by things like structure, grammar, show v tell, POV’s etc. Always remember that the story is king. Write the story and forget about everything else. Once you have the story down, then editing it becomes easier because you have a strong story to work with. The story is and always will be, what readers remember.

Do you have another profession besides writing?

I am a project manager by trade. I work in a field called ERP which stands for Enterprise Resource Management. I install software to help factories create products efficiently. I am lucky enough to work 4 days a week which gives me an extra day to concentrate on my writing.

Do you snack while writing? Favorite snack?

I snack all the time! Peanuts are my usual choice but lately I have got a little bit addicted to roasted corn. I do find that I snack differently depending on what phase of writing the book I am in. If I am drafting, I snack a lot. I drink a lot of tea and have lately had to go do decaf because I wouldn’t fall asleep until 3am in the morning.

Where do you write?

I have two major places. A sit/stand desk with a desktop computer where I do my editing. And the couch with a laptop for when I am drafting. I find that when I am drafting, I am very sporadic as ideas and imagination flow. When I move to editing, I need more structure, so the sit stand desk works for me.

If you were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 books would you want with you?

Phantoms by Dean Koontz
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
