About the author:
John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn't kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.
As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel's skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad's fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)
As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn't beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.
As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for 14 years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they're asleep.
Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.
The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories he publishes for free because he likes you so much. (And it's good marketing. Shh) He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in the previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.
John H. Carroll
Book 1 of the Willden Trilogy.
Ryallon is a vast world surrounded by chaotic energies. Humans live on a few of the continents separated by massive oceans, but many areas of the world are unexplored and filled with enormous forests, endless deserts and majestic mountain ranges. The light of two moons, Siahray and Piohray keep the night skies bright.
Tathan left home at the age of fifteen to travel the world. He found adventure along the way, but it wasn't always the sort a young man dreamed of. Most of it was much darker with dark alleys, knives, and a primal struggle for life at the lowest levels rather than dragons, maidens, knights and treasure. Fourteen years later, he has come home to the valley where he grew up.
Liselle is a young woman of seventeen years whose parents wish her to marry soon. However, marriage is the last thing on her mind when she has never seen anything beyond the lonely valley where she lives. Liselle spends much of her time talking to the flowers about how she feels. They listen intently to her every word.
Vevin is . . . well . . . something else entirely. His home was recently stolen from him by a terrible creature who hurt him badly. Now he is searching for a new home. Preferably something with a large area to keep his treasure . . . once he acquires some.
Sir Danth is the greatest of the ancient Knights of Morhain . . . Of course, he's the only Knight of Morhain still alive . . . sort of alive . . . only different.
Rumors are spreading about a new race called Rojuun. They appeared from the depths of the mountains eight-hundred years ago with the intention of taking over the world. It is their understanding that humans exist to serve them, but are disappointed that humans don't seem to be aware of that fact.
The companions are charged with finding out more about this race of Rojuun. Will they be entranced by beautiful music flowing through the air, or will they die a horrible death in the darkest depths of the world? And exactly who, or what, is Vevin anyway?
The Willden Trilogy is an epic fantasy that follows the adventures of Tathan and his companions through the Willden Forest and into the depths of the world. A new race called Rojuun has appeared in the world and is threatening to make humans their servants. It is the companions' task to learn more and perhaps rescue a princess if they have the time.
