Derrick Smythe

Derrick Smythe has been fascinated with all things elvish, dwarvish, and magical since his days of running through the woods with sharpened sticks in defense of whatever fortification he and his brothers had built that summer. After consuming nearly every fantasy book he could find, he was driven to begin work on one of his own. When he isn't dreaming up new stories, he can be spotted hiking the Adirondack Mountains or traveling the world. He currently resides near his hometown in upstate New York with his enchanting wife, three ethereal daughters, and his faithful-if-neurotic Australian Shepherd, Magnus. Derrick's debut novel, THE OTHER MAGIC, is the Amazon bestselling first installment in the epic fantasy series, Passage to Dawn. The second book in the series titled, THE OTHER WAY, released in November of 2021 as a #1 Bestselling New Release in four Amazon categories. Smythe has also penned a stand-alone companion story, TO EARN THE SASH, which released in November of 2020 while another companion story titled, TO WIELD A PLAGUE, is set to release in May of 2022. These are prequel stories that do not require prior knowledge of the series, though they do feature characters from the main series. Work continues on the next installment in the Passage to Dawn.
