Eris Stone & The Book Of Shadows
Eris Stone sat at his desk and began writing his very own Book of Shadows, a wizard's memoir of his life. If he had thought about it when he was a young man, it is doubtful that he would have pictured so many twists and turns and that such an incredible adventure was about to commence!
Mike Whaley was born in Cardiff in 1974.
"I grew up in a part of Cardiff called Cathays, with my parents and older brother and sister. Many other members of my family also lived in the same street and there was a real sense of community in that area.
My love of literature came from reading a book in High School called, This Time Next Week, which is an autobiography by the author Leslie Thomas. I began to write various stories after that and enjoyed jotting my ideas down.
I have had many jobs from a bar manager to a chemical factory worker. Later in life, I found a job within an insurance company and stayed in that role for many years, but always had the dream of being a writer. Whilst in that job I wrote several articles for the company magazine known as 'The Slug', which was a more comical look at the life of an office worker.
I have lived in Cardiff the majority of my life, and like the lively nightlife and culture that this city brings. I like rugby, reading, watching television and films, and spending quality time with the people I love."
