About A. S. Warwick

I have been writing ever since I can remember, even as a very young child. I was lucky in that all through out my schooling I was actively encouraged to write. And write I did, telling many fanciful tales.

Eventually though our school days end and we must venture forth to find work to support ourselves and that, alas, leaves not as much time to pursue writing dreams.

The ideas never stopped coming through that period though, and resulted in copious amounts of notes, synopsis and outlines jotted down for future use

Having a bit more free time on my hands, the time has come to do something with those ideas and to pander to the delusions of authorhood that are mine.

I write a variety of tales in the fantasy, sci-fi and associated fields, ranging from gunpowder fantasy, heroic fantasy, steampunk, sci-fi, urban fantasy and more, exploring the history ad mythology of them as well as the adventures that take place in those worlds. For the most I write shorter fiction; short stories, novelettes and novellas, but there are novels in the works.

UPDATE: Some stories may be down for a short while as they are fixed, but they will return.

About the Series: The Deeds of Peregrine and Blade
You wish to know of the pair they call Peregrine and Blade? Aye, I know them well; Peregrine, the sword-maiden of the wild Aedring hill clans, and Blade, born and bred in the cities of the civilised plains. Adventurers, sell-swords, mercenaries, thieves and rogues; call them what you will. Far they travel on their adventures, yet always they are drawn back to Qaiqala, Queen of Cities, Qaiqala of the Thousand Dreams. You would hear more of them? Very well, draw me a mug of ale and prepare to be entertained.

Review by: Christopher Goodrum on Jan. 23, 2017 :
Remarkably entertaining from the start. the author weaves a thrilling tale about a young girl coming to age in the most unexpected way and with an unfortunate result but faces danger with a resolve that places her clan above all else, even when that means her personal sacrifice would be great.

Fianna is strong and capable. Fierce and determined in a world not too far removed from our own. I hope to continue onto the other books in the series.
