Kael Rhys is a product of Generation X. He currently lives in Southern California and is close enough to the beach to enjoy what it offers, but far enough away to avoid the tourist. He's always been fascinated with religion and the hold over us as a society and that is what led to the Horsemen Chronicles.
When he isn't working full time or putting the crazy images in his head down on paper for the Chronicles, you can find him working on his martial arts or playing dad with his own little demons.
What are you working on next?
Book two of the Horsemen Chronicles, of course :-) The series has become an amazing ride for me and I love how I can come up with this great idea or plot and as the story progresses that plot or idea evolves into something so unexpected. I'm also doing some short story prequels to the characters, such as Rise of the Iniquitous Son. I like that it allows me to give some of the supporting characters more depth and let their stories be told. I'm also working with some comic artists here and converting I Am Warcry and the series into a graphic novel. More on that as it progresses.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My kids. I'm not so sure I would label them screaming and fighting over who's cartoon show to watch as inspiring but it does make for a good alarm clock I can't ignore.
Even a wicked miracle is still a miracle. In this prequel to I Am Warcry, Mason learns first-hand how something divine can have an evil outcome. In the year 1187, two Angelics, Mason and Balam were on a secret quest to protect God’s ultimate relic, The Ark of the Covenant. Only one thing stood in their way, Hell. Learn how The Horsemen Chronicles all began.
Condemned to earth as one of Heaven’s fallen, Balam’s thirst for ultimate power consumed and drove him to the madness of unleashing his vision of the Apocalypse on mankind, only he left someone behind, someone he didn’t anticipate. In his wake stood Warric Reynolds, who saw firsthand Balam’s wrath unleashed on the world. Now, he must embrace his calling and become Warcry, Heaven's last champion.
