From the Author
As many writers are, I'm a voracious reader, and I'm known to read many different genres. I've always loved epic fantasy, vampires, and of course, erotic fiction (especially of the BDSM sort -- the hotter, the better). For fantasy, everything from Tolkien to GRRM to Jacqueline Carey floats my boat. Joey W Hill's Vampire Queen series is some of the best vampire fiction -- whether erotic romance or not -- I've ever read. I'm a HUGE fan of Ann Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy which she penned under the nom de plume A.N. Roquelaure.
Like others though I often found myself frustrated at books that attempted to incorporate more than one (or all) of the above elements: it was rare that the individual elements that I was looking for ever received equal billing.
Fantasy that tried to incorporate lots of sex often failed on the sex count. Erotic fiction that tried to add a deep fantasy or paranormal plot or setting often used the setting/plot as mere window dressing for the sex.
The original story that eventually became The Fall of Lady Westwood had been percolating in my mind for several years, and one day I decided to put pen to paper and actually, you know, write the thing down. I found though as I was writing it, that the world that is The Chronicles of Muurland series is a vast, dark, and alluring one. So many other stories wanted to be told, that I knew several more books would be in the offing.
What I've tried to do with this book -- and future installments in the series -- is write an epic fantasy tale that incorporates all of the themes and action that I love: erotic odysseys, journeys of self-discovery, titanic battles, sinister plots, true love caught in a maelstrom of lust and depravity, and elemental struggles between good and evil -- and the conflicted souls who walk the road between the two.
I hope you pull up a seat and stay a while...
The books in The Chronicles of Muurland are intended to be read in order, but can be enjoyed as standalone novels as well. I've listed them below in order of publication date:
1. The Fall of Lady Westwood
