David Brown could be considered a fantasy fanatic, especially since he has spent the last 10 years developing a 47,000-year history for his fictional world of Elenchera. When converting his obsession into literary form, David commits himself to a rigorous writing and editing process before his work can meet his approval. Combined with the critical eye of his wife and a BA Hons in History and English, David's dedication leads him to his goal of inspiring readers through heartfelt stories and characters.
Elenchera has a timeline very different to our own. History in Elenchera comprises of separate Ages which are collectively known as Shards, named after the crystal shards hanging from the branches of Miarchre, the tree of life in the heart of the world, whose irregular shedding of a shard results in a pale blue glow that resonates throughout the cosmos and signals the end of one Shard and the beginning of a new one.

The first book in The Elencheran Chronicles is Fezariu's Epiphany (May 2011). The second title - A World Apart - was released in June 2012. David is currently working on the third title, Ansel's Remorse (anticipated 2015).

My thoughts are with the friends and family of those on the missing QZ8501 Air Asia plane :(
Charlie: Santa escaped my clutches once again. Sneaky sod. Now I must wait another year before I get my chance.
Mr Kain: Christmas was as awful as last year. Beard Face stuffed himself, complained he was dying, then got pissed. Beautiful.
