I’m a Scottish-born comedy writer living in Auckland, New Zealand. I’ve long been a proponent of the intelligently silly, taking great inspiration from the likes of Monty Python, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and the occasional fart joke. Smack-dab is my debut novel, featuring bandits, random limb explosions, and a healthy dose of tax. Think of it like “Terry Pratchett meets Fallout, but not as good as either”…

THE ABODE, a middle-grade fantasy, is my debut book. I launched on Amazon (Kindle, KU, and PB) in November 2017. So far, adults are enjoying this book as much as kids. Much to my surprise!
THE ABODE Fel is the only child who has ever escaped from the Abode, a workhouse for chidren, hidden from the world inside thick, swirling mists. Fel finds a home with a family of reformed pirates, but the discovery of a magical object from her former life sends her back to the Abode to rescue her friend Molly. Fel’s reappearance sets in motion an adventure that goes far beyond saving one girl. A coming-of-age story for anyone 8 or older, The Abode offers readers a complex fantasy complete with pirates, dragons, and the Abode’s children, who discover who and what they really are.
I’ve always been afraid of the dark. As a child, I was certain I knew where the monsters in my closet hid, so I didn’t go in there after sunset. Nothing much has changed over the years. I don’t have the same closet anymore, but there are always new closets, shower curtains hiding whatever’s lurking in the tub, dark hallways, noises in the night, and, well, darkness. Maybe that’s why I’ve always been drawn to fantasy. All of that braving of the darkness in spite of monsters, evil wizards, huge dark chasms … and the heroes almost always start out as regular folks (Harry and Hermione, Frodo, Katniss Everdeen, Buffy). Fantasy stories scare me, thrill me, teach me, and give me hope. Most importantly they entertain me. I hope The Abode will entertain you as well. Perhaps, if you’re like me, some of your fear of the dark will dissipate after reading this book. I hope so.

The titular Liberty, a half-human daughter of a Phantom, grows up with the wilderness as her guide and Whenua’s creatures as her friends.

Two headstrong women in their forties coming from different moral directions clash within the confines of a French-Canadian mill town in northern Rhode Island’s Blackstone Valley. Their narratives relate how an heirloom quiche recipe and baking rivalry redress misconceptions, misdeeds, and maliciousness which wreak havoc on those caught in the crossfire of a tragedy precipitated by reckless behavior.
Augusta Bergeron: Dysfunctional. Deceptive. Demure. More than meets the eye at face value and stuck in a holding pattern, the town siren engages in morally destructive behavior she attributes to maternal abandonment until she eggs-humes her mother’s quiche recipe.
Lindsay Metcalfe: Pedigreed. Privileged. Proper. Mourning the recent death of her mother, the historian-in-residence hailing from Boston sets out to preserve the legacy of an impoverished mill, but gets more than she bargains for all around.

I’m a DARK FANTASY author, and you can find me on my website (http://andypeloquin.com/)
I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist–words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I’m also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy novels.
Fantasy provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion, race, or lifestyle–it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand new way. Fiction at its very best!
Vicious, ruthless criminals are made, not born. Child of the Night Guild—an insight into the transformation from innocent child to thief and killer.
Child of the Night Guild (Queen of Thieves Book 1)
“They killed my parents. They took my name. They imprisoned me in darkness. I would not be broken.”
Viola, a child sold to pay her father’s debts, has lost everything: her mother, her home, and her identity. Thrown into a life among criminals, she has no time for grief as she endures the brutal training of an apprentice thief. The Night Guild molds an innocent waif into a cunning, agile outlaw skilled in the thieves’ trade. She has only one choice: steal enough to pay her debts.
The cutthroat streets of Praamis will test her mettle, and she must learn to dodge the City Guards or swing from a hangman’s rope. But a more dangerous foe lurks within the guild walls. A sadistic rival apprentice, threatened by her strength, is out for blood.
What hope does one girl have in a world of ruthless men?

Hello. I am an author of fantasy (mostly) and have several books out. The link I provided will take you to my Amazon author page, which showcases all my books. The primary book I want to bring to your attention is Legacy of Dragonwand, a trilogy. Here is a description of the first book.
Over 1000 years ago, nearly all the ancient wizards were destroyed after the Wizard Wars. However, the one who started the War still remains, having worked his will in secret. If he can find the last Dragonwand, he will regain his powers as the dark dragon. Unaware of the Dragonwand or the betrayer, sixteen-year-old Markus is looking for a wizard who will give him a letter of recommendation for the College of Wizardry. During his journey, he stumbles upon Tolen the Wise, who sends Markus on a quest to end the darkness and find the Dragonwand before it gets into the wrong hands.

She knows…someone is coming to usher them away from their isolated purgatory. Someone is coming to lead them through the unforgiving desert – teeming with lawless killers and savage beasts – to the last bastion of civilization, a mythical land of plenty called Manna City.
My name is Alexander Pink and the first book of the series is Bennu Strand: The World inside Book One. The Bennu Bird is the progenitor of the mythological Phoenix and a key element in the Kemetic Story of Creation. One of the components I explore is the idea humanity, in ages long past, may have attained heights of technological achievement that was lost to cataclysm and evidence concealed by the hands of time. I guarantee avid readers of sci-fi/fantasy will find a unique and original work with concepts rarely found in the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre, if at all. While the majority of science fiction which tends to have limits with writers adhering to long-held, commonplace sci-fi elements, my story explores alternative scientific theories and social concepts based on an ancient mythology recently rediscovered and currently being explored by society.

It is about Lucius Pontius Aquila, a citizen of ancient Rome. Aquila was a staunch supporter of the Roman Republic and considered Julius Caesar’s dictatorship a threat to the people’s freedom. Historians recorded that he refused to stand with the other officials as Caesar’s chariot passed by during a military parade. He later joined in the assassination of Caesar on the Ides of March, 44 B.C. The novel includes martial arts, capable women, and romance.
