Hello, my name is Bryan Dickerson, and welcome to my website and blog.
I have been an avid consumer of fantasy and science fiction novels since learning to read at an early age. Growing up, you could almost always find my nose buried in a book as I went about my day (even in the bath or while walking down the street). My work has been influenced by these early experiences, as well as by consuming a wide range of graphic novels, tabletop role-playing games, video games, and Japanese animation. In my fleeting moments of spare time, I am also a hardcore gamer, with a special passion for strategy and role-playing games.
I have been writing in one form or another for most of my life, but only began writing fiction a few years ago, after deciding at long last to try my hand at crafting an epic saga. I soon fell in love with the process of developing a fantasy universe and drafting a novel and began working full time on my book in the summer of 2018. I completed an initial draft of my first book, “the Joining”, the following winter, but decided soon after that it was too long and began the process of splitting the Joining into two separate novels.
I am presently seeking representation before attempting to sell my series to a major publishing house. My second book, “the Herald’s Wrath,” is now approximately two-thirds complete, and should be finished near the end of 2019, with numerous sequels already in the planning stages.
These days, I want to share my stories with others, but also to pass on what I have learned from teaching myself how to write epic fantasy to other prospective writers. My site and blog are continually being added to and refined, so feel free to pass along any comments, criticisms, or suggestions and thanks for your interest.
