Blood and Shadows is a special book with a unique story behind it. The Saga of the Seven Stars was first thought up when I was fifteen years old. I drew a crude representation of the map, developed the characters and created the world of Tar Ebon, along with the system of magic.
In 2013, I was finally given the opportunity to write the story I always wanted to, and Blood and Shadows was born in a two week frenzy of writing. Several revisions later, the final product was complete.
Blood and Shadows acts as sort of a prologue to the main storyline of The Saga of the Seven Stars. It is a lead-in book that introduces some of the main characters of my world, as well as the system of magic. My second book, Time of Shadows, is where the main storyline I've been dreaming of since I was fifteen truly begins, but Blood and Shadows is a necessary piece of that.
Dayne first began writing fantasy at the age of fifteen when he discovered the worlds which fantasy novels could transport him to. Since then, he’s read countless fantasy and science fiction novels from the likes of Robert Jordan, Elizabeth Haydon, Peter F. Hamilton, George R.R. Martin and many others. He has earned a bachelor of business administration from CTU, written a fantasy novel, obtained his customs broker license and started a publishing business. Dayne lives in southeastern Michigan with his wife and daughter. When he is not working on his Saga of the Seven Stars series and his next novel, you can find him reading, watching television with his wife, biking, walking and playing on the computer or with his daughter.
