A former publisher and Luddite of old-world printing, Simon has been banging out ideas since the days of correction tape and typewriters (hey, it wasn’t that long ago). He lives in the Canadian Rockies with his wife and two dogs, and spends most of his time daydreaming, chopping wood, hiking in the alpine and hammering on the keyboard, usually with a little too much fervor.

About the Series: Key of Life
Book One: Mannethorn's Key.

Algarth Willowbrow is about to gamble everything. His once-powerful Order is in ruins, and he faces an unwinnable battle to save his life and his people. In a last, desperate attempt, he lures his arch nemesis deep within his keep, hoping to utilize him to reclaim a long-hidden magic, powerful enough to save the Realm – or destroy it.

Bartholomew Waxman, former derivatives broker extraordinaire has gambled everything – and lost. Bankrupt, unemployed and divorced, his only hope for salvation is to start anew, to try and rebuild his self-inflicted shattered life. But at his first job interview, he is grabbed by a spell and thrust into the netherworld of Between, to be groomed to wield a power so vast that it will decide a world’s fate.

The only hope for the Realm is the reluctant and unprepared Bartholomew, a damaged Algarth whose powers are gravely in doubt – and the Key of Life, with its true power hidden from all.

Delve into the beginnings of a vast fantasy epic that embraces a man, a wizard and a world seeking redemption.

Reviews of Mannethorn's Key by Simon Lindley

f you are a fan of fantasy (which I am) you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
Dragons, wizards, magic, good vs evil, an unlikely hero and more .… Mannethorn’s Key has it all!
There are twists and turns all over the place, I love the characters and the dialogue. A lot of humour and great story lines.
There is a good cliffhanger at the end, leaving me wanting more - cannot wait until Book 2 comes out!
Simon Lindley is a new author and I feel he has far to go, looking forward to more from him.
