About this author

M.S. Verish, better known as Matthew and Stefanie Verish, are co-authors as well as husband and wife. They knew they were destined for marriage when they could write together without killing each other. Their writing partnership has rewarded them with wonderful journeys into the realm of fantasy, culminating in the epic world, Secramore. The couple shares a love of nature and art and lives in Northeast Ohio with their Kirin and large family of cavies.

“The problem with a lot of people who read only literary fiction is that they assume fantasy is just books about orcs and goblins and dragons and wizards and bullshit. And to be fair, a lot of fantasy is about that stuff.

The problem with people in fantasy is they believe that literary fiction is just stories about a guy drinking tea and staring out the window at the rain while he thinks about his mother. And the truth is a lot of literary fiction is just that. Like, kind of pointless, angsty, emo, masturbatory bullshit.

However, we should not be judged by our lowest common denominators. And also you should not fall prey to the fallacious thinking that literary fiction is literary and all other genres are genre. Literary fiction is a genre, and I will fight to the death anyone who denies this very self-evident truth.

So, is there a lot of fantasy that is raw shit out there? Absolutely, absolutely, it’s popcorn reading at best. But you can’t deny that a lot of lit fic is also shit. 85% of

King of Thrones was a spectacular read. The poetic prose, the gruesome detail, the fantastic character growth, the phenomenal ending... All of it was a treat. Mark Lawrence has quickly become one of my favorite authors. If Emperor of Thorns is anywhe ...more

But you can’t deny that a lot of lit fic is also shit. 85% of everything in the world is shit. We judge by the best. And there is some truly excellent fantasy out there. For example, Midsummer Night’s Dream; Hamlet with the ghost; Macbeth, ghosts and witches; I’m also fond of the Odyessey; Most of the Pentateuch in the Old Testament, Gargantua and Pantagruel.

Honestly, fantasy existed before lit fic, and if you deny those roots you’re pruning yourself so closely that you can’t help but wither and die.”

M.S. Dear Fellow Secramorians,

As of November 1st 2011, the trilogy edition of “Raven’s Heart” will no longer be available. “The Forging”, “Syuna Blue”, and “Ravenstone” will become a standalone novel—“Raven’s Heart: A Tale from the World of Secramore”—as we had always intended. We would like to thank everyone who purchased one or more of the trilogy edition books, and to those who had planned on buying books two and three, or just three, need only contact us through email (see below our names), and we will gladly forward them to you at no cost. Again, thank you all for your support.

-Matthew & Stefanie Verish

P.S. We have lots of exciting news coming very soon!
