“Two things you can count on when starting a new series by J. S. Morin. First, it won’t be anything like his others. Second, with his world and character building and his talent for a good plot, you won’t be disappointed.”

Born in New Hampshire in 1977, J.S. Morin found himself captivated by the wonders of fantasy and science fiction novels at a young age. He was introduced to the genre via the works of R.A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Terry Pratchett, and Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman. He loved exploring other people’s worlds, from Shadowdale to Hyrule. He also quickly found Dungeons and Dragons to be a creative outlet for stories, characters, and new worlds of his own creation.

His other passion was for building and designing things, and when it came time to choose a career, he went down that road. Once Mechanical Engineer by day, he now spends both days and evenings with his wife in their California home, enjoying that he never needs to shovel sunshine.

And during all of that, he dreams elaborate dreams of visiting fanciful worlds, performing acts of heroism, and solving intriguing puzzles, which inspire him to craft stories that he hopes will help shape the lives of the next generation of fantasy and science fiction readers. And he hopes to avoid finishing growing up.
