About Mark Timmony
Mark Timmony was born in Sydney, Australia. Never much of a sporty child, Mark had a keen interest in reading and was an enthusiastic member of the book club at school. But he didn't discover fantasy fiction until he found The Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman in the school Library.
From there, Mark embarked on to the works of Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Raymond E. Feist, Anne McCaffrey, Frank Herbert, and of course, Robert Jordan.
As an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy, Mark worked for a number of years as a genre specialist bookseller in Sydney. During this time he met many Australian fantasy authors - Karen Miller, Tony Shillitoe and Jennifer Fallon, to name a few - and he even had the honour of being a beta-reader for a number of them. This unique position offered him a glimpse 'behind the scenes' of novel writing, and went a long way in giving him hands on experience in story structure, character development and worldbuilding, as well as offering insights into the business side - publishing and retail - of writing.
When Mark isn't reading, or writing, he's likely working at Australia's local bookstore (or playing World of Warcraft).

Kaiel Toranth is overflowing with regret. Absent during his mother’s final days he is determined to pass the Trials and join the elite Daemon Hunters, hoping to build a safer future for himself and his brother, Darien.
For centuries, the Summoners led humanity to heights undreamt of by their star-faring forefathers. But in their pursuit of power and immortality, ten Summoners opened a gateway to the Void and fell prey to daemonic possession. The war that followed destroyed the civilization the Summoners had built, and the Sundering changed the face of the world forever.
Three thousand years later the broken continent of Athmay still bears the scars of the War of the Summoners. When an unexpected battle with a daemon reveals Kaiel and Darien's connection to a forbidden Summoner bloodline they find themselves on the run from friends and foe alike, for at the end of the war, seers foretold that the Summoners and the daemon hordes would return. And that an Empyros – the most powerful of all Summoners – would be born. If prophecy holds true, then the brothers may hold the fate of the world in their hands…
The Blood of the Spear is the fast-paced first book in The Eye of Eternity epic fantasy series. If you like flawed heroes, edge-of-your-seat action, and intricate world-building, then you’ll love Mark Timmony’s character-driven quest.
