Bryan Rainey is a fantasy writer with a self-confessed passion for writing. He has just published a fantasy book called 'Unforseen:' book one in the Starshot Chronicles. Bryan is madly writing away and has ambitions to finish Southern Desires; I, Ronin; Dragons of the Cosmos; Salvation of Gaalin and its two sequels this year. Phew, that is a big to-do list!
Bryan also has an alter-ego 'Brien O'Raighne' under which he publishes adult-only fiction.
His writing is a unique mixture of fantasy, science fiction, super heroes, paranormal and horror.
Well, without wanting to spill all the beans, I can share a few tidbits with you and then you'll have to click on the FSFNet interview to discover the rest.
- Bryan outs himself as a 'Dungeons and Dragons' Dragon Master, which shows a high level of skill and determination.
- He talks about the favourite character in his book series, who is the heroine, Fiona. I am quite intrigued about these 'goblimites' she is battling and must explore this further.
- Bryan is also a big Star Wars fan (well, honestly, aren't we all?) as evidenced by his list of most-recently read books.
- I did find it interesting that Bryan (or Brien) likes to write erotica, but lists romance as a genre he doesn't enjoy reading. I'm guessing his books are not your typical formula and he is bringing something new to the genre.
Here is Bryan's first novel in the fantasy genre: Unforseen which has just been released this month.
Blurb: Fiona Harley, a princess and Sentinel Knight, escapes her captors in a starfighter. She manages to reach the nearest jump gate. As she set up the coordinates to get home, her fighter's navicomputer is hit.
The coordinates scramble as she enters the jumpgate sending her to the planet of Desarti on the other side of the galaxy, where she is stranded.
A young paladin named Gaalin iv Coel Fan rescues Fiona from a sinking starfighter. There is something strange about this young paladin as others arrive to the location hours later.
