About the author

Because I am dyslexic when I made the decision to become a writer I was discouraged, this just made me more determined to prove them wrong. When I left school I tried to go into work in shops, but I soon found having agoraphobic this was not for me. This made me turn back to my goal of becoming a writer, despite what people said.


I tried many different writing styles, it was not until I did a writing course at Nottingham University, where I was told by other writers and a published author, I had great potential as a present tense writer, I just needed to find the right genre which suited me. This is when I found I was really good at writing fantasy and dark fantasy stories. I began going over some of my early work and found one which sounded promising. It was a world where immortal humanoids who possessed unique abilities, making them appear as gods to early man and of course there was a bad guy who wanted to bring down the gods because of a prophecy. This gave rise to The Master Guardian series.


However, my work was soon destroyed by an editor who did not understand the world was two realms which coexist with one other. He also could not get his head around the idea of the lead character Guard having two people with him all the times. So it just became a generic vampire story. Not what I wanted. This made me start looking for a proofreader and editor who understood the unique world that I had created.


Then came the breakthrough I had been longing for in 2014 an editor came to me and asked me for an early version of part one, as the current one was in his view a real mess. Which I agreed it was. When he read the first ever draft, he came back asking why didn’t I stick to this unique world? Where there are even higher beings other than the gods as I have never come across anything like it. It’s just awesome. I really like your unusual writing style as not a lot of people can write in present tense and in third person.


This gave me the confident boost I needed to scrap the old books and return to what I originally created as I myself prefer writing this current version which you see today. All the artwork is done by me, I like to bring the characters to life and come up with interesting front covers.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago.

Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.

By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
