Meet the Author

Born in 1954 in Walpurgisnacht-the most evil night of the year, so I'm told. Please note: this was not my fault! Mother was a school-dinner lady and a mother and a swimming champion at school, but not necessarily in that order. Father was a DIY fanatic, a fish-keeper, and a taxi driver, in that order. One sister. Six years older than me. Went to primary school. Teacher read Alan Garner's The Weirdstone of Brisingamen to us.

Heavens opened and voice said, "WRITE!" Wrote. Went to Strand Grammar School. Carried on writing. Considered to be "good" at art. Discovered music. Loved music! Loved reading as well. Fantasy mostly. Could be found in Sixth Form Common Room reading Lord of the Rings over and over.

Spent a lot of time in my bedroom as a teenager and in my twenties writing books-mostly fantasy or science fiction. Sent various books off to various publishers and agents. Got them rejected. Wasn't put off. Carried on writing, but also had to go to work to earn money. Was told by publishers that the kind of books I was writing (fantasy) would never sell, because no one liked fantasy anymore. Told that if I wanted to be published, I should write about other stuff. So I started writing about other stuff. It worked! I got my first book published in 1987.

Got married in 1991 to Claudia, whom I met at an Amnesty International conference. Two days later, I got made redundant from my job. Cute wedding present! Used the pay-off money to buy a word processor, which was an early kind of computer. Was on social security for a few months, but carried on writing and submitting work. Got more books accepted. Still no fantasy, though. Went self-employed as a writer November 1992. Have been making a living from writing ever since. Got ourselves two cats: Merle Oberon and Siouxsie Sioux (a.k.a. Siouxsie the Hun).

In September 2000, moved to the ancestral home in Herne Hill with wife and cats. Now have a garden. Ahhh! Bliss! A few years ago The Wheel of Fortune finally turned to the extent that publishers wanted fantasy books. (Thanks, J. K. Rowling! Much obliged to her for opening the door for the rest of us!) Am now busy working on three different fantasy series at the same time. Managing this by typing one series with fingers, another with a separate keyboard operated by toes, and a special eye-blink device strapped to my forehead with which the third series is produced.

In 2006, our beloved friend Merle died, but Siouxsie is still with us, a grand old lady of 17, although the vet says she looks as good as a 12-year-old, which is nice to know.

Ambition is to live reclusively in old house on cliff-top in North Cornwall, preferably near Tintagel, while Claudia runs a cat sanctuary in back garden. All donations gratefully received.

This is one of the best books in the Faerie Path series. I enjoyed it very much. I would not recommend reading this book if you have not read the other four because frankly it would not make any sense. The other four books are just as thrilling and beautiful as this one, and I think that they are worth reading multiple times. I have shared this series with my friends and they both love it too. The book is filled with excitement, magic, and romance. Tania's love, Edric, comes back to her after leaving to become a general in Wier. He vows to protect her and he says he will love her for all of eternity. (And he really means eternity, because all of the people in Faerie are Immortal) But Tania's companions, her sister Rathina and her friend Connor, are not so quick to trust him, because he has been dipping his toes in the Dark Arts. They say that he is addicted and will use them whenever he gets the chance. Tania, however, trusts that he will not use them and her trust stays strong throughout their journey through Erin and Tirnanog to find the Divine Harper. This story is about love, strength, and courage. I highly recommend reading this book.(But not before you read the first four) Loving vibes and virtual kisses, Sophie

Edric is using the dark arts and Tania is worried he will turn out like Gabriel Drake! Will Edric fail her? They have completed their mission. Now Tania must pay the price! Will she ever remember Faerie again? Action packed and truly hearthbreaking, making the readers beg to get their hands on the sixth book!!!!:()
