B.E. Lore

Biography

I was in high school when The Hobbit gave me my first taste of fantasy novels. Years later, when on business in Sydney, I wandered into a book store and happened across a copy of The Lord of the Rings. The world of hobbits in LOTR rang a familiar bell. I purchased the book and have since read it so many times that the spine is falling apart, but none of the pages are dog eared.
Other epic fantasy series to capture my attention have been Dune, The Magician, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and the Wheel of Time. I have also enjoyed reading the novels of Jackie Collins; the bitches and bastards, humour and relationships in her books have entertained millions.
And so I asked myself - what if I could massage the bitches and bastards and humour into a fantasy storyline? I would read that. The thought gave birth to The Time of Their Lives trilogy. I have enjoyed writing and reading it. The first book is complete, the second almost, and the third has its storyline drafted. I hope you enjoy them too.
I live about an hour north of Sydney, Australia. I use B.E. Lore as my pen name.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is a leather recliner lounge where I sit with my feet out, and my laptop on a cushion on my lap. To my left, hung from our lounge room wall, is an original water colour from Bali of egrets sweeping their bills through a shallow pond for fish - one has succeeded. Straight ahead, through a picture window, I can see a green valley with palm and gum trees, and the occasional grazing sheep. To my right is a log fire, my wife’s sewing machine, and more gum trees through another window. I keep my reference material on a wooden coffee table to my left…and that is a mess.
What is your writing process?
I plan the story line and then see where my imagination takes me.
