About davidjb

I am an avid reader of fantasy and counts Tolkien, Irvine and Rowling amongst my favourites. I am also keen on Saxon/Viking re-enactment where I learned the brutal reality of fighting in a shield wall. Writing is now my main hobby and I have written a fantasy trilogy, the Prophecy of the Kings, which comprises Legacy of the Eldric, Dragon Rider and Shadow of the Demon - sample chapters and reviews can be found on my website at http://davidburrows.org.uk. I also recently written a prequel to the trilogy, Drachar’s Demons.

My interest in fantasy started with The Lord of the Rings. Motivated by the epic tale I put pen to paper, determined to create a story with bold characters and an intriguing plot. The book's initial scene was a betrayal set deep in the heart of a mountain. Encouraged by friends I started writing The Prophecy of the Kings in the months during my wife’s pregnancy with the first of two sons. As with most aspiring authors, writing was part time, with the plot progressing in the evenings and holidays. At times the tale seemed to naturally take the characters into extreme peril, and for months I was left wondering as to their fate. Refusing to rewrite the tale to rescue them I patiently waited before inspiration struck and the story continued at a fast pace to the next cliff-hanger. Suffice to say My sons have now grown and, as the quill dries, are of an age to read and appreciate this work. As to the characters in the tale, they too have grown older and wiser; as to whether they survived the tale, only reading the novel will tell.
