R J BarkerR J Barker

RJ Barker lives in Leeds with his wife, son and a collection of questionable taxidermy, odd art, scary music and more books than they have room for. He grew up reading whatever he could get his hands on, and has always been ‘that one with the book in his pocket’. Having played in a rock band before deciding he was a rubbish musician, RJ returned to his first
love, fiction, to find he is rather better at that. As well as his debut epic fantasy novel, Age of Assassins, RJ has written short stories and historical scripts which have been performed across the country. He has the sort of flowing locks any cavalier would be proud of.

prestigious all-boys boarding school. She then went on to study English Literature at the University of East Anglia.
While at UEA, she met the local re-enactment group and began a decade of running around in castle grounds with a lot of hairy mates and steel cutlery. They were gamers, too, and rolled many dice, long into the evenings.
After a range of different jobs she moved into retail first with  Allders of Croydon and then  at  Forbidden Planet where she took on everything from marketing strategy to running events to developing the company’s social media identity.
Her published titles include the Ecko trilogy, Children of Artifice, Judge Anderson: Bigger Than Biggs, The Bloodied Rose and short stories in assorted anthologies.
