David Wiley is an author of science fiction and fantasy stories, choosing to write the stories that he would love to read. His first fantasy novel, Monster Huntress, will be published by OWS Ink, LLC. in April 2018. His novella, A Merchant in Oria, is set in the same fantasy world but follows a different cast of characters on an adventure that challenges the notion of what it takes to be a hero.

His short fiction has previously been published in Sci Phi Journal, OWS Ink, and King Arthur anthologies by Uffda Press and 18th Wall Productions. David resides in central Iowa with his wife and son, and spends his time reading, writing, and playing board games.

There are so many characters and events and items that I have yet to explore in my own writing, but it was a lot of fun using the Questing Beast. I chose it as the piece of Arthurian Lore for my After Avalon story because it doesn't appear in many modern takes on the King Arthur Legends. I loved trying to convey that beast and to come up with a viable reason as to how it was around in Viking-Age Iceland and why only certain people could see it.(less)

There are two that I would recommend above all others, at least from those available now:

1. A Merchant in Oria, because it is my first solo work out there. It is a fun fantasy novella, and not only does it provide a quick taste for my writing it also gives the first chapter of my forthcoming book.

2. After Avalon, because that anthology is fantastic and my short story in there is perhaps the best one I have written so far. It is able to effectively combine two of my literary loves - Viking culture and Arthurian Lore - into a great story.(less)

Anais Chartschenko answered David Wiley's question: Anais Chartschenko
I wrote Bright Needles as a teenager. The Weightless One was written as an adult. That changed my perspective, although I think that I always tried to tell an honest story from whatever stage of life I was in.
