Greg Hamerton is a high fantasy writer: most of his stories come to him whilst flying over mountains in a T-shirt. It's hard to balance a manuscript and steer a paraglider at the same time, but he keeps trying to share his stories, because levitation is close to magic, and magic can be shared when you know how to spell.
His writing tends to include danger, epic journeys and sorcery.
He enjoys a range of fantasy authors from classic world-building masters like Tolkien and Jordan to the magical realism of Charles de Lint and Richard Bach. He has also been influenced by the character driven fantasies of Robin Hobb, the wry modern fantasy of Joe Abercrombie and the sharp wit of Terry Pratchett.
He lives in the south of England, where he spends his weekends looking for the Lost Mountains, or the Prodigal Sun. The Riddler's Gift is the first novel in the Tale of the Lifesong fantasy series, followed by Second Sight. A prequel is currently in development.
