I am AM Werner from southeastern Wisconsin, the author of the Historical Fantasy series, THE CRYSTAL CRUX. While being a follower of the Sacred Name YHWH, I also have a passion for all things Medieval. I study Roman, Greek and Norse history and mythology as well as Native American studies. I am a past winner of a WRWA Jade Ring for an article I wrote at the bedside of my brother who died of complications from Muscular Dystrophy. I am married with three beautiful daughters, three wonderful grandchildren and a whole host of extended self-proclaimed children and grandchildren.
There were a limited number of authors I could locate and enter on this site as befit my style of writing so I will expound on some more of them here. I think you will find that my books are similar in style and scope to works by Jack Whyte, Michael Crichton, Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, R.A. Salvatore, Terry Brooks, Steven Erickson, Joe Abercrombie, Brian Jacques and Herbie Brennan.
I read and study history and mythology and than try to meld the two together creating Historical Fantasy, the supernatural apparently fitting seamlessly into reality.
