About the author

Adrian G Hilder

<p>Adrian G Hilder was born in 1970 in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, to an English father and a Scottish mother and grew up as a child of the Royal Air Force. Moving house every few years with his parents was the norm and began when he was just four months old.<br /> Adrian has lived on several RAF bases in the UK and Germany, and there was a time in his life when he had spent more time living in Germany than he had the UK.<br /> His early years in continental Europe meant many family holidays immersed in the bewitching beauty of Bavaria, the Swiss, and the Austrian Alps. These locations inspire the setting and even some events in his stories.<br /> <br /> Today, Adrian lives in Hampshire, the United Kingdom with his wife and three boys just a few miles from where Jane Austin wrote many of her works. As a teenager, Adrian had two great interests: computer programming and fantasy stories.<br /> In October 2013, having worked in the IT industry since 1991, Adrian decided the time to realise his long-held ambition to write a fantasy story was long overdue. His debut story, The General&rsquo;s Legacy, is the result of combining everything he has learned so far about creating fast paced dramatic stories, combined with what his imagination has been brewing for twenty-eight years.</p>
