Mark Barnes was born in Sydney, Australia, in September of 1966. A strong athlete, he was also drawn to the arts at a young age, penning his first short story as a seven-year-old.

Morning, Nick.

Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you're enjoying the story.

There are six more books in the EoE story, though the first trilogy hasn't been popular enough for me to write the remainder of the story as yet. My agent is currently editing another novel set in Ia - in a different nation and with different characters - and I'm in the process of writing another Ia novel at the moment.

If I can get enough of a readership, I'll definitely be completing the EoE story.(less)

Though I predominantly write fantasy and urban fantasy, I love to read science fiction and have recently finished Keith’s debut novel, Horizon. It’s a wonderful piece of work I recommend to anybody, a novel of large scope set in an intimate environment with a tightly contained cast of characters.


Now,

let’s hear what Keith...
