Aka Mark Barrowcliffe.

MD Lachlan is a pen name - created after Mark Barrowcliffe, author of works such as Girlfriend 44 and Lucky Dog, felt himself irresistibly drawn back to fantasy after writing his Dungeons and Dragons memoir The Elfish Gene.

The Wolfsangel series draws on Norse Mythology to tell the story of a werewolf trapped in the schemes of the Gods, doomed to be reborn endlessly.

Mark also writes fantasy under the name Mark Alder - his Banners of Blood series is set in an alternate 100 Years War where angels and devils stalk the earth!

Series:
* Craw Trilogy

A good review in The Daily Mail. Not my first choice of newspaper politically, in fact about my last, but the only tabloid with a decent books section any more.

Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock
" I loved it myself but I am a sucker for nice prose! "
Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock
"This one was pretty good, but not as great as I'd heard people tell me it was. It was big on ideas and setting and mood, but not big on action and adventure. Still, well worth reading. The prose is very nice."

Only Loki was not a fighter. Only Loki stood at the sides and laughed, a laughter more deadly to the self-important gods than any sword or spear. No wonder they had chained him.

“There is a moment between waking and sleeping and between sleeping and waking when the mind seems to be in many places at once, when memories mingle with dreams, when what has been and what is yet to be exist side by side, and when the mind slips free of time and personality to wander in strange halls where the familiar and the strange become indistinguishable and ghosts and visions walk hand in hand. Aelis tumbled toward sleep and fell into this place, to the mind's borderlands, where magic is.”
M.D. Lachlan, Fenrir

“What is your name?" she asked.
"Names are like clothes, lady. I have many."
"And which one do you wear tonight?"
The god smiled. She could see he liked her words. He pulled her to him, pressed his wolf lips to hers and said, "My name is Misery, and would you know yet more?"
"Yes," said the girl, breathing in his scent, the scent of something beautiful, strange and burned. "I would know more."
He flicked at her lips with his tongue and whispered, "So is yours.”
M.D. Lachlan, Wolfsangel

message 2: by M.D.

M.D. Lachlan Thanks Lucinda! It means a lot to hear from people who enjoy my stuff. The trilogy (which isn't called Claw, despite it being reported absolutely everywhere that it is) isn't a trilogy! Book IV will be out soon and I have a new book coming out in the New Year under the name Mark Alder. That's going to be called Son of the Morning and should be fun! Thanks again for your kind words and sorry it's taken me so long to reply to your friend request, I don't come on here often!
Mark


Lucinda Dear M.D Lachlan,
As a huge fan of your 'claw trilogy' i would like to thank you so much for being by friend, as it is a real honor and privalidge to be able to connect with you here on GoodReads. I adore the fantasy genre and found your work totally origonal & the concept was inspired. I can assure you that your books will remain at the top of my bookshelf for a long time!
Kind Regards
Lucinda x
