Robert V. S. Redick
I'm the author of The Fire Sacraments epic fantasy trilogy. My new novel, SIDEWINDERS (Book II in the trilogy) is the longest and most ambitious book I've ever written. If you like desert adventure, meditations on peace and war, brothers with a love/hate relationship, dastardly global criminal networks, demon children or flying jellyfish, this book is for you. I'm told it reads well as a standalone too. I wrote much of MASTER ASSASSINS (Book I), in the city of Bogor, Indonesia, beside a window through which the sounds of the city--calls to prayer, street vendors, kids, dogs, parrots, screeching toads and geckos--filtered in a soundtrack that waxed and waned but never stopped. I'm also the author of the epic fantasy series The Chathrand Voyage Quartet, which begins with THE RED WOLF CONSPIRACY and concludes with THE NIGHT OF THE SWARM. I've had the good fortune to live abroad and travel extensively. Before my two years in Indonesia, my travels were mostly in Latin America. In Cali, Colombia, I worked with a human rights foundation and taught in a bilingual school. In Argentina I interviewed park rangers, park administrators, superintendents and biologists across the country and wrote an in-depth study of ranger training in Argentina and elsewhere. My first novel, Conquistadors, is set during the Argentinian dictatorship of the late 1970s. The book was a finalist for the 2002 AWP/Thomas Dunne Novel Award. For four years I worked as a stage critic for two New England newspapers--a nice job to have if you're dating. I've also worked as a baker, translator, Paso Fino horse handler and lab technician in an acid rain study.
