I am the son of Sicilian immigrants and therefore bilingual. I was born in Germany and grew up in Mönchengladbach before I graduated in Aachen. I’m living in Bochum for several years. There I married and am the father of a daughter. Writing has been a popular pastime for me since my early childhood. As a child, I already imagined fantastic stories, with which I drove the boredom. My predilection is to invent complex worlds with their own cultures, languages, maps and peoples.
I write as a Selfpublisher and distribute my books without publishing company. I am the author of the Gerwod-series. The first four parts have already been published. In total, the series will consist of 10 parts. At the moment I am writing the eighth part.
The story takes place in a fantastic and medieval world full of magic and new creatures. It is a world that is dominated by human people, but is also inhabited by many of the so called ancient peoples. The peaceful Forestsweepers, the magic Toughskinners and the gorgeous Nightalps belong to the ancient peoples.
It is an inconspicuous Forestsweeper who, through the mysterious discovery of an ancient artifact, rekindles the eternal struggle between good and evil. He lures evil powers, who from that time onwards want to shed the world with war and chaos.
To this end, mysterious knights and magicians interfere with the conflict.
This is the beginning of a competition for the artifact, in which the Forestsweeper with some of his acquaintances, a Nightalp and a Toughskinner is also involved in an adventurous story.
On their way the Forestsweeper Gerold and his companions encounter other unusual creatures such as the Sandrunner, the Nightraptors, Blackflyers, Lupiners, Yellows, Eislers and Luftdingers.
Even if the story begins as a fairy tale, it is rapidly developing into an exciting and creepy fantasy adventure. The Gerwod-series is aimed at all fantasy fans who want to go on a long journey through a completely new imagined fantastic world.
A colorful insight into the world of Gerwod is provided by the character images and maps, which are regularly published on the corresponding FB page.
