|Most folk believe that technology rules their lives. They’re wrong. Dark conspiracies and ancient magic actually dominate this world. My one mission in life is to open people’s eyes to that fact.|
I hide behind the pretence that I write fiction to ensure I don't attract unwelcome attention; deadly attention.
My name is Ken Magee and I tell people I write contemporary fantasies which blend adventure and humour with technology and magic. My books live under the tagline ‘ancient magic meets the Internet’. Dark Tidings, The Black Conspiracy and A Darker Shade of Black make up the trilogy.
Do you want to laugh while the world comes to an end? Why not have a look at these books… before it’s too late?
Here's the rest of my cover story...
I have always been intrigued by words and writing... so writing a novel has been a lifelong dream. However, I needed a career which would pay the bills, so for many years, I worked in the computer industry in a wide variety of roles including programming, systems analysis and sales. In the middle of it all, I served in the Naval Reserve... which was hard work, but a lot of fun.
In 2010, I decided it was time to finish Dark Tidings, the book that I had started many years earlier (writing not reading). As I said, I would have finished it sooner, but life got in the way. It's completed and published now, but I don't think any of the original book survived the process!
My big hope is that people enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Over time, I hope my books will help bring the written word to the computer game playing generation(s). Games are great, but so are books!
I love dreaming and books help kick-start trains of thought; so do films & TV. Red wine lubricates the whole process!
