About the Author

Gary Burfield-Wallis is a writer of fantasy adventure novels. Authors such as David Eddings, J.R.R Tolkien, J. K. Rowling and Terry Pratchett to name a but a few have influenced and cultivated Gary’s love of fantasy since his early adulthood.

Gary started writing late in life having been a programmer and company director. With his two boys at university Gary made the sudden decision to give up his rented house, sell everything, and move into a motorhome with his wife and two huskies, he found the joy and love of travelling. Preferring to be in mainland Europe for the majority of the time, without the distraction of the television, Gary returned to reading. 

His long walks with his dogs provided time to think clearly and eventually started to have an idea for a book of his own. Many of the places he visits provide additional inspiration such as the medieval town of Orvieto, Italy perched high up on a plateau of volcanic ash.
