Meet the Author

Fantasy Writer
Hi all, this is K.D. Nielson … and welcome to my …. mind.
I am a full time writer in search of a publisher, so I have to work at my day job to pay the bills. I have been writing and telling stories now for over 30 years.
Since the 11,000+ earthquakes here in Christchurch, I have been free to indulge in my greatest passion, telling stories, while the city starts to get back on its feet. I have drawn on my experiences these past months (seems like years) of awful earthquakes, the years serving as a prison officer, and my time in the US Navy as part of Operation Deep Freeze, making seven deployments to Antarctica. Yes, in spite of everything, I am still sane. I have drawn on my daily experiences in these jobs and the different facets of everyday life, as material for my books.
I have a wealth of intrigue, love, betrayal, war and heroic deeds just waiting for an avid reader. I have finished several books in the world I have created. They are just waiting to be discovered by that right someone, hopefully a publisher. All my books are available on Amazon through Kindle, and Createspace's print on demand.
I am married to a lovely English girl, a schoolteacher, and we have three sons, one which seems to keep coming back, kind of cramps my style. My wife has donated (sometimes gang pressed might be more like it) hours of her valuable time helping me with editing and reading manuscripts, and being very patient with all my questions, some of them might be, well … dumb.
I have also been working with a like-minded friend who is a fantasy fan and a very good writer in her own right. She is also a renowned artist and in conjunction with another project connected to my books, she is working on sketches of the characters and creatures of my world.
For more information on my books go to http://www.theworldsofkdnielson.com
Thank you for bearing with me while I rabbit on ... I challenge you, step into my mind ….you might like it so much ... you may not want to leave.

KD Nielson

    This is a great book. There are times when the story gets a little broken or choppy but other than that this a great fantasy read.

    Too disjointed

    When it was good it was good. But when it was bad....
    As others stated, the continuity and bridges from one place to another or one subject to another was just too disjointed. I got tired of trying to figure things out and of giving too many passes. Sadly, when in the moment, the writing was good.

    Good read

    Great story plot, find a dragon hoard of treasure and start a new kingdom from scratch. Main characters are lovable, intriguing and you can relate with many of them. Many different races of non-human allies and enemies. Downside of the book, it gets confusing in many parts. You have to re-read and go back and try to figure out what just happened and what is going on. Sometimes you just get confused and there is no explaing how or why a certain scene is even happening. Was an enjoyable read anyway.
