Tell us something about you, Stephen Perkins, the man.

As an artist and creative writer, one firmly believes imagination is the highest of virtues. Along with possessing this, one also happens to believe there should be no limits. rules, or restrictions when it comes to the realm of artistic creativity.

And who's  the writer? How was Sorcerers' Dynasty conceived?

Sorcerers’ Dynasty is actually my fourth book composed in the span of just a little more than one year. With regard to my first book, Raging Falcon, the narrative was inspired by the mysterious details reported in the wake of the alleged murder of a high school teacher at the hands of one of her young students. Having occurred right in my hometown, the event proved to be quite emotionally impactful, and employing one’s imaginational embellishment, the creation of the story was thus inspired.

Why did you choose the Science Fiction / Fantasy genre?

I’ve always felt the genre of science fiction and fantasy is the ideal vehicle to present the truth of social commentary through the literary artifice of fiction.

Is there a book or author that inspired you to be a writer?

Perhaps more than any author in the history of modern literature other than Shakespeare or perhaps F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemmingway, my writing has been inspired by Charles Dickens.

What can readers expect when they read your books?

When endeavoring to read a title from Stephen Perkins, readers can truly expect the unexpected in terms of social commentary, enchanting mystery, narrative detail and description, and characters that although may not always be perceived as truly likeable, may prove to be utterly fascinating.

Where can they buy a copy?

Sorcerers’ Dynasty can be currently be found and purchased at Amazon and Kobo.

Are you releasing a new book anytime soon?

While I wish to maintain an air of mystery regarding my latest book project, one can reveal the exciting narrative will include an entertaining potpourri of American professional football and science fiction, complete with a hero that realizes even in the twilight of mortality, it may never be too late to become a champion.

What do you love about being an author?

There are many enjoyable aspects to becoming an author, not the least of which is the ability to create enchanting worlds complete with characters over whom you as creator have ultimate control over their ultimate fate. Not to sound overly hyperbolic or pompous, but being an author is a bit like posing oneself as an omnipotent god, one who has control over life and death.

What is your message to readers?

One of the most important messages of Sorcerers’ Dynasty is one should never fear in questioning the true empirical nature of anything and everything.
