Timothy Bond

Publisher info

I spent nearly 20 years deciding whether or not I wanted to be an author. My field is information technology, and I specialize on manufacturing systems. It's technical, challenging, and requires you to stay focused and current with changes in the industry.

I started going to a fantasy world in my mind many years ago, and the adventures of Peter and Alexandra were my escape from the harsh technical world all around me. The twins were enthusiastic, energetic, eager to go out and explore their world, and willing to take on any challenge necessary. I have often said that I travel to the Upper Aren and come back and write about it, and I really do feel that way at times.

My own eclectic interests fueled the twin's activities, as I have been done a little of everything in my life. I suspect it's because of my adult attention deficit disorder, and a need to try everything at least once.

Though I am an American, and was born in Washington State, I currently live in Penang, Malaysia and travel the region on both business and pleasure regularly.

I hope you enjoy the adventures of my characters and they become a part of your lives, as they have long been a part of mine.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My head is full of stories from decades of reading fantasy and science fiction, then thinking of interesting places in my mind. I absolutely love to share these stories with people, and of course writing is the best way to accomplish that.
What do your fans mean to you?
What I hope to accomplish with my writing is to generate a fan base for my work that is as excited about the next story as I am, who love the good guys and hate the bad guys like I do!

The Triadine Saga
The Traidine Saga is a series of books that takes place in a world of men, elves, dwarves, wizards, dragons - in other words in the world of Epic Fantasy. Come along with us as we adventure with Peter and Alexandra, twins born in a time when evil is growing in the land, and elements of The Prophecy are coming true for all of the people. In the first book, The Watcher's Keep, we find that the Watchers long ago abandoned their sacred duty to observe and control the power of Khollaran, an evil wizard, locked away in a distant prison at the end of the First Age. As his power grows, elements of The Prophecy appear to come true. The Guardians take actions to try to stop him, putting young Peter and Alexandra in the middle of the greatest conflict since the Breaking of the World. As the Children of the Prophecy, the twins will be tasked with a near impossible quest to recover the pieces of the Triadine and unite the races in a battle to destroy the growing evil, without destroying the very world in which they live.
