THE AUTHOR

J.R. Mitchell

This is my story...

I was born in Northern New South Wales in the small rural community of Murwillumbah.  I grew up having a vivid imagination and at an early age discovered the love of fictional characters in the many books I read, characters such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella, Snow White and many others, wonderful tales written by the Brothers Grimm, Han Christian Anderson and others such as Aesop's Fables.

Life changes, and as you mature your interests change as day to day activities eat up your time.  However, I never forgot those tales, believing that someday I would create amazing characters of my own.  I have raised a family, have forged a career, undertaken a university degree and more, yet at the back of my thoughts were always those fabulous and mysterious characters of my childhood.

In 1995 I had a phenomenal dream, one which took me back to my world of fantasy.  I remember the occasion with animated accuracy.  I woke at midnight and grabbing my pen and trusty diary I wrote down what I could recall.  It was not the complete outline; just a rough sketch but it included the main characters you now know from The Immortals.

In 2007 I completed my first novel, Pathway of the Gods.  The second novel, Awakening of the Gods, was finished in 2008 and the final novel in this series, Gathering of the Gods, came to its conclusion in 2009.  Since starting The Immortals I have worked on several other storylines that are equally as enticing, which I can't wait to share with you.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy sharing them with you.
