Meet the Author

In English en NederlandsAbout the AuthorJack Broscie is a Dutch Fantasy writer. He is best known for the fantasy series 'Chronicles of New Earth.’The work of Broscie is characterized by its visual language and evocative writing style. For the eye of the reader the backdrop of the narrative unfolds. Landscapes, climatic conditions, flora and fauna, scents and colours, settlements and their inhabitants unfold before the eye of the reader. Broscie sketches the contours and the reader fills in the details effortlessly.His main characters consist of both men and women of various ages and positions, while both men and women are equal. Broscie doesn’t write fantasy with Orcs, Elves and Trolls, but with tribes and people on a newly by himself created world. He combines emotional conditions that are contradictory. Thus, societies are described where extremely primitive transportation and advanced communication are commonplace.He regularly writes short stories and participates in competitions to improve his (writing) style.Over de auteurJack Broscie is een Nederlandse Fantasy-schrijver. Hij is bekend van de fantasy-serie ‘Kronieken van Nieuwe Aarde’.Het werk van Broscie wordt gekenmerkt door zijn beeldende taal en suggestieve schrijftrant. Voor het oog van de lezer ontrolt zich het decor van de vertelling. Landschappen, klimatologische omstandigheden, flora en fauna, geuren en kleuren, nederzettingen en de bewoners ervan zijn als het ware uit te tekenen. Hij schetst de contouren en de lezer vult ze moeiteloos in.Zijn hoofdpersonen bestaan uit zowel mannen als vrouwen van diverse standen en leeftijden; daarbij geldt dat mannen en vrouwen gelijkwaardig zijn. Broscie schrijft geen fantasy met Orcs, Elven en Trollen, maar met zelfbedachte rassen op een nieuw geschapen wereld. Hij combineert omstandigheden die gevoelsmatig tegenstrijdig zijn. Zo worden samenlevingen beschreven waar uiterst primitieve transportmiddelen én geavanceerde communicatiemiddelen gemeengoed zijn.#jackbroscie #iezegrimmig
