Hi, I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people on The Literary Net. Here's how I describe myself... and some of it's true!
Most folk believe that technology rules their lives. They’re wrong. Dark conspiracies and ancient magic actually dominate this planet. My one mission in life is to open people’s eyes to that fact.
My name is Ken Magee and I tell people I write contemporary fantasies which blend adventure and humour with technology and magic. My books live under the tagline ‘Ancient Magic Meets the Internet’. I pretend that they’re works of fiction, because I’m afraid of the powerful people behind the conspiracies… I’m hoping a ‘fiction’ writer will slip under their radar.
Up until the point when I discovered the frightening plot which deliberately caused the recent global financial meltdown, I’d led a fairly normal life. I’d worked for many years in the computer industry in roles ranging from programming through to sales. In the middle of it all, I’d served in the Naval Reserve… which was hard work, but fun. Then in 2010, I decided to make time to finish Dark Tidings, the book I’d started many years earlier (writing not reading). I would have finished it sooner, but life got in the way. It’s finished now (the book, not life).
Dark Tidings is the first book of the series. The Black Conspiracy and A Darker Shade of Black complete the ‘Ancient Magic Meets the Internet’ trilogy.
Hello from Canada. I'm a multi-published author who's spent the past couple of years relearning the craft of writing. So much changes so quickly in publishing these days! I'm hoping to return to the writing arena with fresh new stories and a better understanding of the business.
Awards and best-sellers aside, I love this business because of its diversity of voices and genres, and I'm happy to be part of it all. I publish a quarterly magazine called Sensual Treats, have had over 400 stories, novels, etc. published throughout the past 20 years, and the best is ahead - I hope!
