Alaric Longward was born 1970, which makes him as old as computer floppy disks. Do not worry if you don't know what they are.
Throughout his childhood, he found himself curiously attracted to books. This strange hobby did not take anything away from the computer gaming and occasional sports, but the books stayed and the wonderful stories that could be found in his father's vast library would inspire him throughout his life to appreciate the power of story telling. He loved history, fantasy, and sci-fi.
As time moved on, he graduated from the university with a degree of Master of Political Science, dreamed of a career in diplomacy and ended up making computer games in Nokia N-Gage. He stayed on after the demise of the first serious swing at mobile gaming, and worked as a senior manager and product manager in ICT sector for over a decade, specialising in internet services, innovation solutions, and crowdsourcing.
One day he decided to drive his family nuts, and quit his job to become an author. Now, as a bestselling author of eight books, he hopes to provide you with exciting adventure stories. He is a dad, a husband, and a full time author.
