Most folk believe that technology rules their lives. They're wrong. Dark conspiracies and ancient magic actually dominate this world. My one mission in life is to open people's eyes to that fact.

I hide behind the pretence that I write fiction to ensure I don't attract unwelcome attention.

My name is Ken Magee and I tell people I write contemporary fantasies which blend adventure and humour with technology and magic. There are three books which live under the tagline 'ancient magic meets the Internet'... Dark Tidings, The Black Conspiracy and A Darker Shade of Black. They're contemporary fantasies which have lots of laughs, twists and thrills.

Dark Tidings is here on Wattpad. All 3 books are available from Amazon.

Here's the rest of my cover story...

I've always been intrigued by words, so writing a novel has been a lifelong dream. However, I needed a career which would pay the bills, so for years I worked in the IT industry in roles including programming, systems analysis and sales. In the middle of it all, I served in the Naval Reserve which was hard work, but a lot of fun.

When my life had settled down a bit, I decided it was time to finish Dark Tidings, the book I'd started many years earlier (writing not reading). I would have finished it sooner, but life continued to get in the way. TV series like Game of Thrones, True Blood, 24, Breaking Bad and The Middle, also slowed me down. TV has a lot to answer for.

My big hope is that people enjoy reading the books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
