S.G. (Stephen George) Grant has enjoyed writing fiction since a young age. Born, raised and living in Berkshire, England, his fondness for travel has helped to inspire many ideas and create some of the incredible settings for the first instalment of The Scroll of Days Series.
It wasn't until early 2014 that the first idea for an epic fantasy novel was created. Since then it has developed and expanded to create the epic fantasy series now known as The Scroll of Days Series.
With a detailed plan created, he began writing and in April 2015 completed the first book in The Scroll of Days Series, The Tomb of Kings.
What's the story behind The Tomb of Kings?
The Tomb of Kings is the first book in the epic fantasy Scroll of Days Series. Initially set in the walled city of Tristan, King Sebastian Vandemark has just been assassinated. But it isn't as simple as crowning the next king. Governed by an ancient prophecy only the true heir to the throne can be crowned or risk unleashing the unknown horrors that the prophecy predicts on the world.
Before he dies, King Vandemark tells Emily Bridwell about the unknown heir to the throne. With the murder of the king pinned on her she must evade Tristan's guards as well as bounty hunters to find the heir before it is too late.
When Lewis Hargrove, an archer in the guard rescues her from bounty hunters he has no idea how intertwined their lives are about to come. With the help of someone inside the castle they have to find the true heir while discovering secrets about the kingdom and their own past.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on the next book in The Scroll of Days Series, The Fires of Creation, which I'm hoping to release in 2016.
Away from that I'm also in the process of writing a coming of age story set in Scotland that focuses on a character called Heather McKenna who is trying to find her place in the world while dealing with the murder of her younger sister, an abusive boyfriend and an alcoholic mother.
Hidden amongst the mountains far to the north for an ancient institution, known as The Dawn, have set their sights on Lewis and will stop at nothing to have him join them. But things at the tower are not as they seem. Can Lewis uncover the secrets of an entire race in time to save himself? Could the ones out to kill Lewis be the only ones who can save him?
