BRONWYN CALDER made her start as a writer through the 1990s by publishing short stories in science fiction and fantasy anthologies, women's short fiction anthologies and literary journals. Bronwyn's day job is book editing and proof-reading with her higher level creative passion this century being the fantasy world of "Askar" where her characters engage with rather than escape from issues reflecting those of our world.

From Askar Test Readers:
A common theme for fantasy novels is how the central, seemingly powerless, character can play a crucial role in the war of good prevailing against the odds over evil. At first I thought Askar was based on the same theme... So is it the story I expected? No, we are told at the start that the peoples of Urkan and Askar are cousins, and although in Askar they worship the god Dread, it is the goddess's wish to see the realms reunited, and the prophecy is that Askar will rule in Urkan. So it seems that the prophecy, and the goddess's intention, is that evil should prevail over good.
