I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist--words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I'm also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy novels.

Fantasy provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion, race, or lifestyle--it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a b

A good outline makes it easy for me to avoid writer's block. I don't start writing until I know more or less where the story is going to go.
If I find myself unsure of where to go in the story, a few fingers of Scotch help to shake those creative genies in the brain loose!(less)
Andy Peloquin Having an outlet. It can be hard to let out your frustrations and sorrows, but writing gives me a way to let it out productively.

In the Days: A Tale of the Forgotten Continent (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 10, 2014 08:25PM
Description: The Empire of Atlantis: the most powerful nation in the world. Peace reigns across the continent, and an age of prosperity and enlightenment has made the Empire the center of the globe. But, beneath the peaceful façade of life in the Imperial City, trouble is brewing. Assassins lurk in the shadows, intrigue abounds in the court of the Empress. Will political ambitions topple the House of Tah, or could the threat be one much more sinister in nature? Dark forces threaten the land, and the future of the Empire is at stake. One man is shown a glimpse into the future--a future that could be, or the future that is destined to come? This is the tale of the last days of the great Empire - the Empire that the world forgot. This is the story of Atlantis, in the days when it ceased to be.

“The gods are nothing more than the creations of humans needing something to blame for their problems.”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“Aye, and I've heard tell that he shits scorpions and pisses venom. We've all heard the tales,”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“A woman older than time stared down at the Hunter, her pale, age-spotted face twisted in a mixture of anger and concern.”
Andy Peloquin, Lament of the Fallen

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The gods are nothing more than the creations of humans needing something to blame for their problems.”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“The gods are but aspects of an unknowable divine power. Humankind has given them faces and names in an attempt to understand the power, and thus we have created the gods as we now know them. What was once something vague and indefinable is now rationalized into a concept humans can grasp. In our worship of the various aspects of the gods, we have transformed those aspects into the gods themselves.”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“The simple man needs something beyond himself to blame and credit for the bad and the good. If we were to accept all the blame and credit upon ourselves, it would be more than we could bear. Looking back at the horrors perpetrated in the name of the gods, our minds would shatter. This way, with the gods, mankind has a way to ease its conscience.”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“I must point out...that now is a good time to have these gods. For if they weren't created for a time like now, when the world could very well be facing an untimely end, why would they be needed at all?”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer

“Priests are meant to pass on the word of the gods, minister to the poor, and provide the services offered by their temples. No one said anything about being holy. Not even the gods are truly holy.”
Andy Peloquin, Blade of the Destroyer
