Woelf Dietrich is a New Zealander who writes dark fantasy and supernatural novels. He began writing short stories at the age of 12 and has now published Seals of Abigal: book one of the Guardians of the Seals Tales.
Woelf also has an interest in drawing and enjoys drawing fantasy comics of musclebound warriors and scantily clad vixens. He has also been a cartoonist.
His interesting career includes: being a lawyer, living in a Kibbutz is Israel and selling pots and pans in Africa.
Here are my favourite points:
* Woelf borrowed his pen name from the German hero of fantasy writing
* The mythology in Woelf's writings is borrowed from many cultures
* There are dragon bones in Poland (I must check those out)
* Woelf lists 6 works in progress in the interview (wowsers!)
* Listing just five favourite authors is a tough challenge for this guy
* He has the best answer to the Star Wars vs Lord of the Rings question

The Seals of Abigal
Bookstore owner and novice antiquarian, Sebastian Kaine is proud of his new profession and even prouder still of the collection of antique books on the occult that he keeps locked away in the basement of his bookstore.
But his little utopia is shattered one night when he wakes up in that same basement, bound and bloodied, and his prized collection all but destroyed.
As he tries to stay alive, Sebastian discovers The Seals of Abgal is far more than just an ordinary grimoire for it holds powerful secrets.
