I am one of the biggest elf geeks I have ever met. First inspired by the world of Tolkien, I began writing short stories, until the idea of the Silvan popped into my head. That was no short story but a sprawling 900 pages of epic fantasy.

The Silvan is my first publshed work, an epic fantasy series revolving around the figure of a Silvan elf, Fel'annar. There are currently three published books and the fourth is due April, 2020.

I am always happy to meet new readers and authors, so please feel free to friend or follow.

Hi Chrissy.

OK, Valley. It’s an area, a place that is shrouded in mist, difficult to find unless you are an Ari’ator. It’s not like heaven, but is actually where The Source is located. the Source is a portal of sorts. Elves can cross over into a new life but they don’t die. So Valley is the area where The Source is located.

The problem is that many humans believe that if they could cross into The Source, they would become immortal. This is actually true, but human bodies are not prepared for immortality. They start to rot and the Deviant is born. The job of the Ari’ator is to stop humans from getting too close to the source, avoid them becoming Deviant.

I am now working on a companion handbook which explains this and other aspects of the universe.

I’m glad you’re enjoying the series, and feel free to ask whatever you need to.(less)

Green Sun Is Back. Prepare For War!

The day has come. Book IV of The Silvan Saga is out!!

This is the best time for an author, and potentially the worst if readers don’t like it. But I’m staying positive. First reviews from my amazing ARC team have been brilliant, and now it’s time to sit back and wait for the verdict from the general public. 

Deep breath, bottle of champers, or maybe cava. Chocolates and my specs for seeing things. R
