About the Author

Diana Sinclair, writing under the name of The Goddess Diana, was originally from Baltimore, Maryland and moved to New Jersey at an early age. She has been writing poetry and short stories since childhood and has culminated her literary skills in her latest work, Dark Lord, the first in a series of full-length novels. A graduate of Norwich University in Vermont with a degree in Psychology, Diana has written numerous academic works, including a thesis, which concentrated on the affects of Alzheimers disease on the family dynamic. Currently a resident in northern New Jersey, Diana is now focusing her skills more toward creative writing and public entertainment.David M. Rountree, who writes under the pseudonym Greywolf the Wanderer, was born in Suffolk, Virginia on May 22, 1954. He and his family moved to Florida during his eighth year, to the quiet little town of Delray Beach, where he developed an intense love for both the sea and flying. The freedom of the sky inspired him to join the Air Force in 1972, where he completed his degree in Electronic Engineering. His experience in Vietnam inspired him to write, and in 1994, he became co-editor and contributing author of The Feary Rad magazine. This opportunity spawned many short stories, articles and poetry about weapons, love, war, and legendary races. He left the magazine in 1999 to concentrate on the completion of Dark Lord, his first full-length work. His poetry appears in selected anthologies titled Nature's Echoes, and his work will be featured in a new anthology titled Friends of Morningshade. His poem "Laura" was selected by the International Library of Poetry to be published in "Poetry's Elite-The best poets of 2000". David has a six-year-old daughter and lives in Gainesville, Florida.

More About the Author

David was born in 1954 in Suffolk, Virginia, but moved to Delray Beach, Florida, in the fall of 1963, where he first became interested in the paranormal. In 1965, his next door next door neighbor, Fred W. Grosstuck, a retired college professor and pattern maker, gave him a book called "Adventures in the Paranormal", essentially a collection of short stories of events from all over the world that were scientifically unexplainable. Fred also introduced him to Fate magazine. He proceeded to read every book about the paranormal he could get his hands on. He participated in the exploration of his first "haunted house" at the age of 17 in Boynton Beach, Florida.

He received his B.S.E.E. in 1973 while serving in the Air Force, in microwave technology. In November of 2007 he received his Masters in Electronic Engineering in Digital Signal Processing. In 1978 he was certified as an audio engineer and in 1985 as an acoustic engineer. David worked in the entertainment industry as a Technical Director, Lighting Designer and Audio Engineer for over twenty years. He retired from the University of Florida in 2001. Currently David is Manager of Public Address Communications Technologies and Director of the Audio Research and Development Lab for the third largest public transportation corporation in the nation. He is currently working on his doctorate in physics.

David is a professional member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Audio Engineering Society, the International Frequency Sensor Association, and is also affiliated with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

David began his research into the paranormal professionally in 1976, and has investigated cases scientifically from Rhode Island to Key West, Florida. David has experimented with both scientific as well as metaphysical techniques in his study of unexplained occurrences. Over the course of his research he was able to confirm EVP was not related to sound by the use of a Bell Jar, a vacuum pump, a Shure dynamic microphone and a TEAC A-4010S Reel to Reel recorder. Due to several encounters of a very negative nature from 1985-87, he made the decision to concentrate on the scientific research concerning the phenomena, and not the metaphysical aspects of the events. In 1992 David formed a new organization, Scientific Paranormal Investigative Research Information and Technology (S.P.I.R.I.T.), and began a long and painstaking process of collecting, building and focusing a battery of hi-tech instrumentation to concentrate on laboratory and field experimentation to search for the cause of paranormal phenomena. By 1998 his focus of research had narrowed to phenomena specific to "Hauntings".

His primary focus since 1998 has been EVP research, employing his background of audio engineering and psychoacoustics. In 2005 David successfully linked electromagnetic fields as the primary source of EVPs. In 2010 he discovered that paranormal related EMF was an emergent phenomenon. He continues to look for answers in science for paranormal phenomena.

David's additional areas of research includes investigating the relationship between free air conductance, magnetic fields, radioactive emissions, electromagnetic fields and other electrical radiation surrounding paranormal phenomena. He is also experimenting with injecting energy into a paranormal event horizon using Tesla Coil technology in order to observe and record the effects. He continues to measure the effects of massive ion bombardment in a paranormal environment. He is developing a device designed to capture and analyze the phenomena referred to as orbs in order to either prove or dismiss their existence. David is also experimenting with a self designed ITC (Interdimensional Trans-Communications) device using electromagnetic field propagation as a medium of cross communication. He is also studying the environmental effects surrounding mediums and psychics when they are active in their work.

David is a Charter Member of the American Paranormal Association, and is currently serving as Co-Chairman of the Board, and Chairman of the APA Science Committee, a contributing member of the APA Technology and Education Committee, the Director of the S.P.I.R.I.T. Laboratory, Co-Director of New Jersey Paranormal Resource Group, Co-Founder of New Jersey Paranormal Investigative Coalition, a professional member of the Rhine Research Center, life member of the New Jersey Ghost Hunter's Society, member of the International Paranormal Investigators, and a member of the International Paranormal Research Association. He is also a consultant for Paranexus Anomalous Research, Inc. He is currently Co-Chairman of the Board of the American Paranormal Association.


David was featured on Comcast Newsmakers in 2006. He has also been a guest on WNTI FM, and WRNJ AM-FM radio in Hackettstown, NJ, as well as a repeat guest on HSTV Channel 23 in Hackettstown on the show "Science on the Edge" hosted by Dr. Karl Hricko. He has made guest appearances on Web Radio programs such as Ecto Radio, The Shadow Hour, Dead Time Radio, Paranexus Anomalous Radio, with Royce Holleman on Paranormal Palace Radio, Paratopia Radio, and recently nationwide on Coast to Coast AM and WOIC AM in Columbia South Carolina. He co-hosts "The Devil's Advocate podcast with Dr. Stephen Rorke and has interviewed such researchers such as Dr. Susan Blackmore and Dr. Michael Persinger. He is available for speaking engagements for a small honorarium. His Book Paranormal Technology: Understanding the science of ghost hunting, hailed as a new paradigm in paranormal research and investigations techniques is available at Amazon.com and wherever fine books are sold online, around the world.

Format: Paperback
Readers of quality fantasy take note: Dark Lord, the new epic fantasy from iUniverse.com, is a sweeping adventure that contains in equal measures tragedy and triumph, treachery and justice, death and rebirth, villainy and heroism, magic and brute force, war and peace. Readers of Dark Lord will find themselves firmly engaged in a war between two worlds - between humans and the fey - but as in all such things the lines separating one from the other is often blurred. A sweeping back-story lifts this novel above others in its class, and treats the reader to a rich universe containing elves, dwarves, fearies, dragons, winged horses, gods and goddesses, and more.
David M. Roundtree (Greywolf the Wanderer) and Diana Sinclair (The Goddess Diana) write with an engaging and fast-paced style that grips you from the first paragraph and puts you inside the skin of the characters themselves. While kings and kingdoms fall you will experience the pain of death and the bitter-sweet uncertainty of budding love, the heat of hand-to-hand combat and the wonder of powerful magic, th pain of burying loved-ones and the joy of celebrating victory hard-won.
I recommend Dark Lord without reservation.
John Berkowitz, Publications Director and graphic designer and fantasy writer

Have you heard of this author? Chances are you probably have not. However, if you are will to take a chance and read a few chapters of this epic fantasy, then I am positive you'll be swept up in the dramatic storline and dynamic characters. Tolkienesque in scope, it nonetheless manages to wrap things up in the space of one novel, something I greatly appreciated.

Having read quite a few fantasy novels/sagas over my lifetime, I can honestly say you've never read a tale quite like this. If you want a page turner that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, then I heartily recommend Dark Lord.

Format: Paperback
General Greywolf leads a cast of "a thousand" intriguing and endearing creatures (mostly elves) in a war against the Evil Dark Lord who is set on invading the idyllic land of Tir-na-nog. When the charming Goddess Diana enters the scene, Greywolf looses his heart even as he wins battles. If you loved Flash Gordon, the movie, and enjoy mythology as much as romance, then let Dark Lord enchant you. I was highly entertained and found myself charmed by a certain Pegasus.
