I am LITA BURKE, an indie fantasy author. As an avid reader, I enjoy downloading titles by new authors onto my Kindle and reading during my commute on the train. I work a day job and write my fantasy stories early in the morning before the day clutters up my brain.
I’ve written fantasy fiction since I was 10 years old. As a teenager, I kept a daily journal where I recorded my observations of life and my place within it. As an introvert, it puzzled me how others could be so outgoing and cool (which I wasn’t–I was a geek before it was popular).
I wrote my first novels about the magical world, Enchanters of Sye, in Wrath and Tredan’s Bane when I was in college. These early novels were the coming of age explorations of a young Enchanter. I don’t plan to publish these earlier stories, but Sye still calls to me, and so I write about it.
The Clockpunk Wizard stories came much later. I drafted them for a publisher requesting fantasy novellas. This publisher declined the stories, but I kept writing the series because Wizard Kadmeion and his assistant magician Sir Bright still had things happening in their plate-shaped ocean world.
I have revisited the Clockpunk Wizard stories, made them presentable, and now offer them for your enjoyment. Forever Boy starts things off with an adventure for Kadmeion’s familiar, Furgo. Ephraim’s Curious Device takes the two magicians on a quest for a magical object that will free the kidnapped Furgo. The latest Clockpunk Wizard story, Old Bony Blue Eyes, takes our three heroes on a dangerous journey to Sir Death’s castle as a favor for a love-starved dragon named Lady Betrayal.
One thing I love about the fantasy genre are the imaginative works produced by indie artists and musicians. I enjoy combining their genius with my humble words to create videos of fantasy worlds. When you have a few free minutes, please visit Lita’s elsewheres for Film Noir, Floating Lands, Steampunk London, and Evil Circus. Be sure to stop by Lita’s Magic Shows and immerse yourself in fantasy images, music, and magic.
Whether you visit the Enchanters of Sye, immerse yourself in one of Lita’s fantasy world videos, or ride an airship in Clockpunk Wizard, I hope you enjoy the journey. Do not fear during your travels. It matters not what perils you find in those fantasy worlds, for I will see you safely home.
