Talking to the characters I imagine has become an intriguing experience especially when they disagree with me. - Terry Simpson. 

I grew up on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbados. I always had a love of writing for as long as I can remember. Somehow, I grew to love fantasy more than any other although my early days were spent reading my father's books from Louis L'amour's westerns to Don Pendleton's Executioner series.

When I moved to New York in 1986 to live with my mother, my love for books developed into me reading and loving fantasy authors such as Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher, Terry Goodkind , Brandon Sanderson, George RR Martin, Brian Lumley, Laura K Hamilton and quite a few others.

I began building the world for what is now called the Aegis of the Gods series in 2001. At first, it was just a hobby because of my love for fantasy and the written word. Slowly, it became a part of my life. Finally, in 2010, I decided to sit down and pen the first book based in my world.

Since then I've written 7 books. Four in the Aegis of the Gods world, two in the Quintessence Cycle, and one in the Arcanus Archives.
