Hello everyone. Just an ethnic bloke from down under here. I'm not looking to get into professional writing or anything but its more of a hobby for me. That being said, feedback (on anything I post) would be great. My literary heroes would include, from my childhood, primarily Dahl and Rowling. In more recent years, my interests have mainly been in fantasy, the preferred authors being Feist (Midkemia), Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire) and the legendary David Gemmell (Troy in particular). I have yet to read Pratchard, though I have been intending to for a while and I have dabbled in the works of Eddings, Wurts and another lady whose name I have forgotten who wrote a four-book series about a woman named Arkady. Outside of fantasy, my choice of author is usually James Patterson or Dan Brown. That being said, my two favorite books are 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and 'Nineteen Eighty-Four". Cheers.
