About Andrew Mowere

Much like most authors, it is best to describe myself as just a guy.
There's really little to set myself apart. I grew up understanding what kind of talent and hard work can create a Tolkein or a Rothfuss, a Martin or Salvatore or a Goodkind. Such talent I was never able to replicate myself, and so such authors I refer to as beasts. They're giant roiling clouds of words, for their sentances strike our hearts with the ferocity of a lightningbolt. Writings like these, they're what is called symbolic fantasy. middle earth or the underdark, they aren't like our own countries. Yet they carry uncanny similarities, and so you end up taking much more with you than just a story, once you put a book down.I'd say Drizzt Do'Urden would make a good philosopher in our own world.

This is the kind of book I strive to write, without sounding too preachy. After all, I might end up having no idea what I'm talking about. Worse yet, I may be a horrible writer. That is not for me to judge. A memorable character's sentance comes to mind, "only 1% of prospective writers are authors. the rest are gamblers until they get published."

Not much in this passage counts as a personal bio. hmm. I studied english, live in a quiet enough town, and have learnt to appreciate a good mug of coffee. There.

Review by: Mike White on May 26, 2017 :
This story was certainly different. Seeing conflicts between humans and merfolk is interesting, and I appreciate the story's strong anti-war sentiment. While the story could have been dramatized and fleshed out more, it still worked well as a short piece.

Review by: Malcolm Torres on Sep. 26, 2016 :
I really liked this story. It has elements of steam punk, sci-fi and fantasy. The plot uses the old story of Moses from the Bible but projects that tale into an alternate reality. Another reason I enjoyed this story is because I like anything that has to do with nautical fiction with a twist especially mermaids, ghosts, seafaring traditions, military sci-fi and alternitive reality. The story takes place over many years, but the author keep the plot moving right along.
