Milo Maia is a young writer, fighting tooth and nail to become a good writer. He loves fantasy, food, and his mum (as well as the Oxford comma). He also dabbles in parentheses and somehow became a triple-featured author.

If you're looking for a read, feel free to try:

THE THREE DEATHS OF BRUNHILDE: A legendary warrior must rescue her kidnapped granddaughter from a rogue prince before the godaxe he wields kills her. Featured. Wattys Shortlist 2018.

SIGGI: A warrior-scholar overlooked for a prophecy attempts to steal the artefact of destiny to discredit the gods' judgement. Featured. Grand Winner of the Inaugural 'Open Novella Contest'.

I'm also creating an African neo-mythology from scratch, featuring tales such as:

THE HEART OF THE EARTHAPPLE: In her final hours, a god-queen turns her grief into the basis of commerce.

EDEN IS A MATERNITY WARD: The tale of how the Prince of Spring earned his divine name.

ARES LOVED: A young woman must decide between killing her lover now or allowing her magic to slowly drive them both to madness.


I adore comments and I'll always thank a vote.

If you'd like to buy me a coffee, I show my gratitude by trying to dislike the same people you do.
