From the Author
I will be the first to admit that 'Necromancer' is NOT the most original piece of epic fantasy literature ever written. I took a lot of inspiration from Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' and other great fantasy books (including those of Terry Brooks and Brent Weeks); I wanted to write a story that contained all the elements from my favorite books...one that I would like to read myself.
Necromancer was a side project; something I wrote just for fun without any intent to publish it (although it ended up published anyway). It was a lot of fun to write, and though some people may not like it because it is familiar, I enjoyed the time I spent doing it.
About the Author
Born in England to a literary family Dune's first experience with fantasy was with the elves and faeries at the bottom of the garden, and a free imagination soon gave life to imaginary friends and other fantastical creatures. Dune's first experience with written fantasy was J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' which still continues to inspire today. Dune started writing fantasy as a teenager, gaining experience and learning what worked and what didn't for a well written story that people actually want to read. Through some good stories and some pretty bad ones Dune became the author that writes novels like 'Necromancer'. Dune currently lives with Cody, a border collie, and two horses in remote Wyoming where characters are given free rein to develop and grow, and where adventures are naturally born. www.duneelliot.net
