D.M. Andrews has been drawing maps, writing stories, and coming up with weird ideas since the age of twelve. Although fantasy features in most of the author's writing, he also has a keen passion for history (especially for his native land of England), genealogy, mythology and even political philosophy.
His major influences in writing are J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan and J.K. Rowling. Although he writes for confident readers aged nine and older, his books also appeal to adults.
