Lindsey J Parsons
"My head has always been crammed full of horses, dragons, magic, and adventure, sword fights, castles, and impossible quests. Stories materialise when I least expect them to and take over my mind, desperate to get out. Finally a few years ago I decided to immortalize them in ink and so I write fantasy, because for me, fantasy is the ultimate escape."
Born in Stratford upon Avon, UK, Lindsey J Parsons grew up in nearby Solihull. She now lives in a crumbly old farm house in a small village in Warwickshire with her three children and an assortment of animal friends. She enjoys reading, writing, horseback riding, archery and looking after the numerous animals that live with her.

Howard, of course, Tolkien proved to be an unavoidable inspiration. The twists and turns of his life, especially in the last 10 years, have colored his writing with both humor, sorrow and, ... read more

It's been a long journey writing these books. I suppose I should tell you about the big work; Allies and Adversaries. It is a massive exercise in world-building. I've spent almost ten years writing the eight volumes that make up this title, three of which (Cracked Dagger, Enter the Flame, and Betrayal) are available on this site, with the remaining five being released over the next year or two. It isn't set on the Earth, which was important for me, as I wanted it to be all mine, from its history, to is future, to the relationship the planet Novan has to the rest of the universe. Like any long work, it requires a little bit of patience, especially with the first volume, Cracked Dagger. But I assure you, the path ... read more

Her idea of a protagonist is one who is heroic and dark at the same time and her preference for a villain is your regular villain but with a heart.
