THE AUTHOR'S OFFICIAL WEBSITE

You couldn’t make it up…

...and yet we both did. In my constant search for new authors (those whose work I haven't read) to add to my reading list, I came across Emily Gee and her 'Cursed Kingdoms' trilogy, for lovers of the genre these are a must read trio. Imagine my surprise when I began to read the first volume, 'The Sentinel Mage' to discover that Emily and I had both made up the same name, Harkeld. In an adult fantasy entitled 'Falgorin' that I wrote some 25 years ago, more of that on my Bio page, I had used the name for that of a fictitious country, she used it for the name of a central character in her trilogy. I emailed Emily to mention the strange coincidence and was delighted by her reply particularly when she told me that Harkeld was in fact the third name considered for the character but as she put it, it ended up being the one that stuck.
