About Steven J Pemberton
Steven J Pemberton was born in England in 1970, the son of a librarian and a teacher. It was probably inevitable, therefore, that he would grow up loving books. He wanted to be a writer ever since he read The Hobbit when he was off sick from school.
He currently lives in Hertfordshire with his partner, where he is working on a new fantasy novel. Visit Steven's website at http://www.pembers.net for news and announcements.

All four novels of the Barefoot Healer series in one volume.
When apprentice wizard Adramal leaves home, her plan is to complete her training at a new school. But she soon finds herself caught up in bigger and more dangerous events than she could have imagined. She'll have to catch a murderer, rescue a village from plague, and find her way into a secret magical well - while staying ahead of a God who wants her dead and keeping her ever-more complicated love life on track. Meanwhile, Lelsarin, the immortal being who lives in Adramal's head, has her own ideas about how to solve these problems, and they might not involve keeping Adramal safe and sane...
This book contains all four novels of the Barefoot Healer series - Death & Magic, Plague & Poison, Dust & Water, and Stone & Silence - along with background material, a glossary, and a bonus short story, The Shortest Distance Between Two Points.
The wizard Adramal is racing home to Kyer Altamar to fight Zorian. She drank from a magical well and received a vision that claims to reveal her purpose in life. Clues in the vision suggest it may contain knowledge that will help in the battle... if she can crack its code in time.
Meanwhile, Lelsarin, the immortal being who lives in Adramal's head, has her own ideas about how to deal with Zorian, and keeping those around her alive doesn't seem to be a priority. How far is she willing to go to rid the world of one God?
While clearing junk from a dead man's house, Raltarn finds a magic mirror that can communicate instantaneously with an identical mirror over great distances. The pair could provide him with a dowry - and might give his country the edge it needs in the long war with its neighbour. When the other mirror proves to be thousands of miles away, across dangerous seas and unexplored lands, Raltarn and his uncle decide the risks are worth it, but they soon discover they are not the only ones who see the opportunity for power and profit...
Somewhere beneath the teeming streets of the city of Molkolin lies a legendary well that reveals the true purpose of anyone who drinks from it. The wizard Adramal and her father believe it holds a secret that will help them defeat the evil God, Zorian.
Galdrakh, the well's owner, has closed it to all visitors. Galdrakh's aunts believe the well really belongs to them, and hire Adramal to prove it. The city authorities suspect Galdrakh is smuggling a magical dust used in the coloured glass that is the foundation of the city's fortune, and recruit Adramal's father to help. But nobody seems to know what to do about the pilgrims who've come back from the well with an important message that they won't - or can't - deliver to anyone...
When apprentice wizard Adramal moves to a new school to complete her training, she discovers that several ritual murders have been committed by magic, threatening the fabric of the world. The evidence points to the killer being one of Adramal’s teachers, and the City Watch recruit her to go undercover to unmask the murderer. Can she find what she needs before the killer strikes again or – worse – without blowing her cover and putting her own life in danger?
