Adrian G Hilder was born in 1970 in Lincolnshire, UK to an English father and a Scottish mother and grew up as a child of the Royal Air Force. Moving house every few years with his parents (and later on brother) was the norm and began when he was four months old.
Adrian has lived on several RAF bases in the UK and Germany, and there was a time when he had spent more of his life in Germany than he had the UK.
His early years in continental Europe meant many family holidays immersed in the bewitching beauty of Bavaria, the Swiss and Austrian Alps. These locations inspire some settings and even events in his stories.
Today, Adrian lives in Hampshire, UK with his wife and three boys just a few miles from where Jane Austen wrote many of her works. As a teenager, Adrian had two great passions: computer programming and fantasy stories.
In October 2013, having worked in the IT industry since 1991, Adrian decided the time to realize his long-held ambition to write a fantasy story was long overdue. His debut story, The General’s Legacy, is the result of combining everything he has learned so far about creating fast paced dramatic stories, combined with what his imagination has been brewing for twenty-eight years.
The General's Legacy - Part One: Inheritance (The General of Valendo Book 1)
A king obsessed with conquest, armies, magic, and monsters
powered by the souls of the dead - the legendary General of
Valendo defended his kingdom from them all and taught his
grandson, Prince Cory, everything he could. But the worst is yet
Cory's life is changed forever after the general's death when their enemy strikes at the heart of their Kingdom. Confronted by his grandfather's world of warriors and magic, and with the lives and souls of all in his kingdom at stake, Cory must do the one thing the old general never could.
End the war.
