Shane A. Mason


Shane A. Mason hails from the rugged South Island of New Zealand where a lot of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings were shot.

He wrote his first novel at 18 but upon reflection decided it was a whiney teenage angst-ridden diatribe and shelved it thinking he needed more living and experience.

20 years later after marriage, divorce, time spent in a cult, part time soldier, chip cooker, proof reader, farm pest remover, truck greaser, accounts sorter-outer, engineering supervisor, bit part actor, and attaining a 4th dan black belt in karate, and training and working as a naturopath/lecturer – he watched the six DVD series on the making of Lord of the Rings. This led to an epiphany fuelled panic as he realised he had a trail of unfinished novels screaming out to be finished.

Having devoured the Harry Potter series and got frustrated with the eventual predictability of the story lines (come on – let’s face it – they got formulaic), he decided to finish his semi-fantasy action-adventure young-adult novel based around his Prema Ayuveda training. Prema Ayurveda is the art of ancient Indian mind-body-soul medicine. Roughly translated it means “nurturing knowledge of life.”.

Rather than write a text book, he decided to follow the ancients and couch all the meaning of ancient texts in a cool epic adventure around four teens that represent four parts of the mind.

Shane currently resides in Auckland, New Zealand where he divides his time between writing, marketing, family and martial arts – though he prefers to daydream and flit off into the nether-sphere where most of the ideas he comes up with are just waiting there for him.
