About The Author
James Lee Aarwen
Writing about one’s self is always a difficult task. I could start with my childhood. However, that's only a pedestrian story about a Texas kid, who was (and is) a little out-of-step with reality. I could start with art school, but I suspect no one is interested in that part of my life, either.
I should start with the birth of Albrene, my dark fantasy world, and the beginning of my career as a fantasy author.
My journey into the world of fantasy began in middle school with a fascination for all things dragon. It grew into a love for fantasy, especially high-fantasy. I read every fantasy book I could get my hands on.
Soon, it wasn’t enough to simply experience the product of the others’ imagination. I needed to create my own fantasy world. A world where characters I’ve come to know and love, live out their lives. A world where countries rise and fall, where wars are waged, where leaders and tyrants reign, and where people plot from the shadows or live in the light. The world that will host the events of the Albrene Chronicles
I have been building this fantasy world and the characters that live in it since 2008. I am now ready to share their stories. I hope that you find them as interesting as I do.
Welcome to my world. Welcome to Albrene.
