A Word from the Author
The journey of writing The Guardians of the Relic has been an incredible one for me. My love for science fiction is what drew me to write this novel. My favorite novel growing up was The Lord of Rings. The magical world and characters that Tolkien had created was simply genius in my opinion. The idea for The Guardians of the Relic had been conceived long before I even started writing it. These characters have virtually lived with me for the duration of my writing and I actually felt sad when I finished the book. The process of writing is so much better than reading. For me the best part is the limitless possibilities. I think any reader who loves Sci-fi Fantasy will enjoy this story. It has a modern twist to an old tale.
