About the author:
I am a public servant: my employers have a rule that I can have a business interest as long as I don't use my job title to further it, so I can't say what I do. However, a small amount of digging on the internet will possibly give it away. I am a father of two teens - one male, one female, both headstrong, both wonderful (alternating with not-so-wonderful moments), and I am husband to the lovely Theresa (I am not worthy). I was born in August 1957 - that should save me from having to alter my age on a regular basis (well, annually, at least).

Oh, and I write. Nearly forgot that bit.

"Pike's Quest" is my first published novel and it's intended to be fun. Broadly, it would be classified as "Young Adult", but at various readings I've had groups of adults laughing out loud - hopefully at the content!

In the pipe-line I have a sequel to "Pike's Quest", and a more adult sci-fi thriller. I hope to achieve mainstream publication in the future.

Pike's Quest
 

Authored by K J Bennett

In a future where horses are revered as gifts of the gods, and sheep and hounds are the beasts of burden, ancient magicks have been rediscovered. But there are those who wish to uncover the technology of the past and take control of the world for their own evil ends. Now, more than ever, the world needs a hero.

In the hamlet of Ooze, a fish-faced, flaky-skinned youth commences a quest: to win the heart of the fair maiden at the Pit of Zidor, and to release Moorlock the Warlock from captivity. Accompanied by a garrulous sparrow and a belligerent horse, Pike is captured and employed by the lisping Lord Nairey du Well and then pursued by the deadly huntress, Scarlet Deadnight.

Pike discovers:

  • that fair maidens are not always female,
  • that they can prove to be deadly foes, and
  • the true value of a good moisturiser!
