Winner - Honorable Mention!
I’m a freelance writer and journalist from Vancouver, Canada. My articles appear regularly in local newspapers, but my passion is fantasy fiction. I write it and I read it. My short stories have been published in multiple internet and print magazines. My fantasy novels ALMOST ADEPT and EAGLE EN GARDE were recently released by Champagne/Burst. An anthology of my short urban fantasy stories SQUIRREL OF MAGIC is available at Smashwords and Amazon. My favorite occupation is curling on a sofa with a good book. My collection of toy monkeys is taking over my house.
And heroic PIs,
A dragon atwitter,
A duke in disguise,
And capricious elves,
My joy, my escape,
My beloved bookshelves.
My fantasy novel EAGLE EN GARDE takes place in Talaria, a kingdom surrounded by a magic-resistant spell. While the king wishes to break the spell and invite magic back into the country, the fanatical sect of Cleaners rampage against magic. Darin, the novel’s protagonist, doesn’t participate in the discussions. He is a swordsman, a mercenary officer, not a philosopher. Then he accidentally overhears the Cleaners’ hidden agenda to destroy all magic workers in Talaria, including witches and elves, and his orderly life is turned upside down. His sweetheart is a witch, his daughter is a half-elf, and he has many elven friends. He can’t allow the Cleaners’ murderous scheme to succeed, can’t allow innocents to suffer. But what can a lone mercenary do against a horde of extremists? His only choice lies in trickery and deceit to outsmart the devious Cleaners, and the anti-magic spell on the border suddenly becomes his only ally.
