Author of the Day

J.B. Markes
J.B. Markes has had a fascination with fantasy stories ever since his aunt bought him a copy of the Legend of Zelda, an 8-bit RPG game. He now writes in the genre and likes to add unexpected twists and a touch of humor. His latest novel, Necrospect is no exception, featuring a necromancer as the good guy, a world where magic has serious side effects and an interesting murder mystery.
