Before I wrote, I read. Voraciously. When I wasn’t able to read, I listened to audio books on tape or CD. Still do.
My name is Robynn E Sheahan and I live and write from the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
I started to dabble in writing while working as a Paramedic/Firefighter in Northern California. Trust me, it’s not like it appears on TV. There was plenty of time for books.
Ideas from dreams follow me into warm sunny days or the quiet of falling snow. What ifs feed a vivid imagination. Even miss-typed phrases may lead to an aha moment. Brain storming sessions standing in windy, dark parking lots with fellow writers release thoughts that pry at the corners of my mind, grasping for purchase. Sometimes the ideas pursue me, with persistence.
About three years ago the dabbling became serious when worlds and characters screamed for, no, demanded attention. So I wrote my first manuscript. Critiques and rewrites filled the next two years.
I now had STORM OF ARRANON, the first book in the series.

Hailing from suburban Chicago, David Pauly attended the same high school where they filmed the 80’s classics, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 16 Candles, and the Breakfast Club. College at UW-Madison was awesome, and after law school, David relocated to sunny New Mexico. Practicing in the Land of Enchantment, David loved the Turquoise skies and spicy food, but was always drawn back to his childhood refuge of Fantasy Fiction.
Voraciously reading Fantasy and Sci/Fi books like Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and Dune, David always wondered what would have happened after these stories ended. So, one snowy night he let his imagination run free and began typing a few sentences of what would eventually become an epic fantasy novel. Ten years later after countless re-writes and edits, begging family and friends to re-read it all, David published his first novel, The Fourth Age Shadow Wars.
Currently busy with his law practice, and precocious 5 year old, David writes the sequel to Shadow Wars, Dark Shaman when he has time. Dreaming of having more time to write and cook, David soon hopes to put away his legal shingle for good, never having to answer the most frequent question asked by his clients “Am I going to Jail again?” with the response, “Yes, yes you are.”

Need some unrelenting action in a high fantasy wasteland world? How about a story that's been compared to Mad Max, Diehard, and Stephen King's Gunslinger? Welcome to The Wizard Killer.
A magical world, once at the height of technology, has crashed and burned. Levitating cars lay abandoned, floating cities lie in ruin, and the tyrant Wizards who ruled with iron fists are nowhere to be seen.
Awakening from the dead for the third time is a man with scrambled memories, driven at first by one desire: revenge. As he ventures through the terrifying wasteland with his mana-pistol and enchanted short-sword, a past starts creeping into his mind, but is it his?
Written in first person, present tense, The Wizard Killer is a pulse-pounding thrill ride in the format of a binge-worthy TV show. You'll find yourself tearing through the book in no time and snatching up the next season.
"...imaginative and compelling series that is quite difficult to stop reading. Dreece knows exactly how to build and then neatly tie up each episode, while leaving the reader wanting more.... highly recommended."

"This is a world with magic and a political situation similar to the world of Stephen King's The Dark Tower... Wizard Killer contains some of the most well thought out and satisfying magic I have ever read. The magic is subtle, but powerful. The world is harsh but magnificent." - Readers' Favorite
A magical world, once at the height of technology, has crashed and burned. Levitating cars lay abandoned, floating cities lie in ruin, and the tyrant Wizards who ruled with iron fists are nowhere to be seen.
In Season One, The Wizard Killer awoke from the dead for the third time, his memories scrambled. He survived the terrifying wasteland by his wits, his mana-pistol, and luck, but the luck ran out.
Now in Season Two, the Wizard Killer's got something to say...
Kill me with a floating city? You got my attention. But then steal from me and try to burn me alive? You got me thinking.
By the way, I borrowed a lightning rifle. Don't worry, I'll return it... empty.
See you soon,
The Wizard Killer
Season Two kicks everything up a notch with 22 all-new, action-packed episodes. Written in first person, present in-tense.
As the danger ratchets up, the man without a name's past and present come into focus and are on a collision course. With an unlikely ally, our hero will fight impossible odds to get the answers that will shatter his life to pieces.
Season Three continues right on the heels of The Wizard Killer - Season Two, and is easily the best season yet!
Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies, even as a little girl. When I was a toddler, my parents would read stories to me over and over. I would hear them so often that I had the books memorized and could recite the story word by word.
The past year, I started having stories stuck in my head and finally decided to start writing. My favorite genres are fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary romance. So of course that's what I'm inclined to write.
I have a husband, two young daughters, and a mini Australian Shepherd. I've lived in Tennessee the majority of my life and love the state.
I'm extremely addicted to caffeine and enjoy drinking coffee and lattes.
I am so pleased that you stopped by my page! Please feel free to contact me!

Mike has recently released the third book in his most recent YA/Teen fantasy series - The Alaris Chronicles, following his 2016 trilogy of The Cremelino Prophecy.
Mike was born in California and has lived in multiple states from the west coast to the east coast. He cannot remember a time when he wasn't reading a book. At school, home, on vacation, at work at lunch time, and yes even a few pages in the car (at times when he just couldn't put that great book down). Though he has read all sorts of genres he has always been drawn to fantasy. It is his way of escaping to a simpler time filled with magic, wonders and heroics of young men and women.
Other than reading, Mike has always enjoyed the outdoors. From the beaches in Southern California to the warm waters of North Carolina. From the waterfalls in the Northwest to the Rocky Mountains in Utah. Mike has appreciated the beauty that God provides for us. He also enjoys hiking, discovering nature, playing a little basketball or volleyball, and most recently disc golf. He has a lovely wife who has always supported him, and three beautiful children who have been the center of his life.
Mike began writing stories in elementary school and moved on to larger novels in his early adult years. He has worked in corporate finance for most of his career. That, along with spending time with his wonderful family and obligations at church has made it difficult to find the time to truly dedicate to writing. In the last few years as his children have become older he has returned to doing what he truly enjoys - writing!
