About the author:
Born in 1970, I've been interested in fantasy and science fiction since perhaps the age of 10. I believe my love of medieval knights came about when my father built a wooden shield and sword for me to use in elementary school for some event.
Through my school years I read hundreds (or thousands? - it's hard to recall at this point) of fantasy and science fiction novels. Comic books and super heroes came a bit later, although I recall seeing the Christopher Reeve Superman movies at a very young age (and loving them). Since my later teens I believe I've watched nearly every major fantasy, science fiction, and super-hero movie that has come out.
I still love reading fantasy and science fiction, although I wish there were more novels based on superheroes. This is something that drove me to create my own supers universe and heroes in written form. I love supers, but I've always wanted more character depth than a comic book can provide. (Not to mention the immense length of time it takes for a comic series to do a story is just plain too long to me.)
Writing is a hobby for me, I'm a full-time computer programmer and systems administrator for a small company. Fortunately the skills I've learned allow me to work with 3D programs to render the characters (and covers) for my books. My hope is to put out a number of novels each year, time allowing. At this point I'd like to grow the H.E.R.O. series with more novels, as well as continue work on the new World of Dur fantasy series I've begun with Necromancer's Ascent.
Kevin Rau, Kevin Rau
In a world of magic and monsters, where the elements provide balance to the world, an enclave of necromancers opens a rift into the realm of death, the plane of elemental energy where they derive their power.
Their actions spread death through the region, and upset the balance between the elements. Adventurers must find a way to stop the effects of the rift, and save the realm from being overrun by the dead.
Necromancer's Ascent is the first action-packed adventure set in the fantasy world of Dur.
As an author of superhero fiction, Kevin Rau is no stranger to action-oriented stories. He is the author of 12 books in the H.E.R.O. series.
