Mike Shevdon lives in Bedfordshire, England, with his wife and son, where he pursues the various masteries of archery, technology, and cookery. His love of Fantasy & SF started in the 70s with C S Lewis, Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov and continued through Alan Garner, Ursula Le Guin and Barbara Hambly. More recent influences include Mike Carey, Phil Rickman, Neil Gaiman, and Robert Crais, among many others.

He has studied martial arts for many years, mainly aikido and archery. Friends have sometimes remarked that his pastimes always seem to involve something sharp or pointy. The pen should therefore be no surprise, though he’s still trying to figure out how to get an edge on a laptop.

As you will have seen from my blog articles I thought I was done with The Courts of the Feyre, but I'm not sure it's done with me. There are some unanswered questions and a lot of people are asking what happens next. I don't want to pre-empt any announcement but I think I will return to it, yes. Sorry if that's vague but hopefully I will be able to be more open soon.
As for other work, I have two quite separate projects active at the moment. One is SF and the other is contemporary fantasy, so very different from each other.

I read this while on holiday, expecting urban fantasy and instead finding a charming tale of paranormal romance.

Perhaps I should begin with the difference between the two. For me, urban fantasy and paranormal romance share geography. Like the twin ci
