James Quinlan Meservy
Please introduce yourself (250 words or so):
Mornin’! I am James Quinlan Meservy, author of the YA Fantasy series, The Realm of the Light.
I graduated from USU with a degree in Anthropology, and minors in Russian and Geology.
Unlike several of my fellow authors, I was not a reader as a child, and I had no interest in becoming a published author. Instead, I watched movies and played video games.
Today I drive a forklift in a warehouse in Southeast Idaho for my day job, and write on the side.
My wife and I live in Southeast Idaho with our six children. When I am not writing or at work, I like to spend time with my family.

When did you start your writing adventure? What was the inspiration for it?
My actual writing adventure probably started when I was in my mid to late twenties, when I decided I would take some story ideas I had in my head and turn them into a novel. The inspiration for starting the journey was having several ideas and dreams that would not leave me in peace until I wrote them down.
What writing plans do you have for the future?
Right now, finish writing my Dragons’ Deceit book. My creative writing time is limited, and I am staying focused on one project at a time.
What do you like to read?
I enjoy reading Classic Literature, especially Charles Dickens, and I enjoy reading books from fellow Indie Authors.
What piece of advice do you wish you’d had when you’d started your writing adventure?
That I had? Probably the same that I was given, hire a solid editor, read a lot, and write every day. Advice that I wish I had followed, hire an editor.

KINGDOMS FALL, ONE DESTINY AT A TIME
Some time ago in a land since long forgotten, an evil force by the name of Lord Yrimwaque – servant of the Threat of Rai – threatens to destroy everything and prepare the world for a harvest. The only thing that stands in his way are three reluctant heroes: Tyler, his girlfriend KimberlyAnn and his best friend Blaze Morrison, who have been recruited by the followers of the Light of Rai. Upon their journey of knowledge, TJ and his friends are forced into an unlikely encounter with a creature of legend, and find themselves in the midst of an ancient battle between the Light of Rai and the Threat of Rai, with our world hanging in the balance. As the Light of Rai teach them to hone their various gifts and talents for the greater good of the kingdom, faith is restored, in the hopes that they will be able to stop Lord Yrimwaque and vanquish the evil horde he desires to unleash upon the land. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the land hangs in the balance, as the lines between good and evil become more skewed. But will all their efforts be enough, or will the kingdom be plunged into darkness forever?
