Fond of nearly all things fantasy; the way that fantasy draws you in and enthralls your senses in suspense of disbelief. Of course other genres have this ability too, but none speak to my heart like fantasy and science fiction.
My first love affair with fantasy came to me in an old paperback book left behind by my wayward older sister. It was ‘The Hobbit’ and since then I have been hooked. (I also still own that book!) I did not jump straight into ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy at first and instead picked up C.S. Lewis’ ‘Chronicles of Narnia’, then tried on a somewhat darker lens with Moorcock’s ‘Elric’ series.
With a Jester of Kindness
“As a peasant boy from a remote valley of Lyonesse, Billy could only dream of the adventures to be found outside his little corner of the kingdom.

That is until the night his destiny caught up with him. Shrouded in a sinister past, it lures Billy to the courts of the highborn. However, the path to unravel the mystery of his life is guarded by malevolent forces and the deadliest court intrigues. To prevail, he will have to learn to trust an unfathomable magic gift and come to grips with the disturbing truth about his place in the world, for his life and the fate of a kingdom hang in the balance.
