Hi all, this is K.D. Nielson … and welcome to my …. mind.
I am a full time writer in search of a publisher, so I have to work at my day job to pay the bills. I have been writing and telling stories now for over 30 years.
Since the 11,000+ earthquakes here in Christchurch, I have been free to indulge in my greatest passion, telling stories, while the city starts to get back on its feet. I have drawn on my experiences these past months (seems like years) of awful earthquakes, the years serving as a prison officer, and my time in the US Navy as part of Operation Deep Freeze, making seven deployments to Antarctica. Yes, in spite of everything, I am still sane. I have drawn on my daily experiences in these jobs and the different facets of everyday life, as material for my books.
I have a wealth of intrigue, love, betrayal, war and heroic deeds just waiting for an avid reader. I have finished several books in the world I have created. They are just waiting to be discovered by that right someone, hopefully a publisher. All my books are available on Amazon through Kindle, and Createspace's print on demand.
I am married to a lovely English girl, a schoolteacher, and we have three sons, one which seems to keep coming back, kind of cramps my style. My wife has donated (sometimes gang pressed might be more like it) hours of her valuable time helping me with editing and reading manuscripts, and being very patient with all my questions, some of them might be, well … dumb.
I have also been working with a like-minded friend who is a fantasy fan and a very good writer in her own right. She is also a renowned artist and in conjunction with another project connected to my books, she is working on sketches of the characters and creatures of my world.

Thank you for bearing with me while I rabbit on ... I challenge you, step into my mind ….you might like it so much ... you may not want to leave.

I started out thinking this was just another ordinary D&D based fantasy novel. There was the noble mercenary and the mage, the healer and the spell that turned an innocent woman into a vampire (well, almost). But even as the book kept close to so many of the stereotypes, it had intrigue, plenty of interesting characters, and engaging plot-lines enough to keep me reading 'page' after 'page'. If I have any criticisms, they would be that this epic style leaves little room for character development and all the races came together a little too easily. Still, it was a fun read and I have already bought Book 2 and Book 3!!! Read and enjoy…
