It’s Midwinter’s Eve, and a storyteller weaves a fantastic tale from his youth: “I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones, even if they have to search all seven halls of the Shadowland to find me.” Before King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, Britain is a land of shadows. When the Saxons invade at the invitation of Vortigern — traitorous leader of the Britons — the tribes must unite to reclaim the land they see as their birthright. And one man must rise to lead them, and become their only true king.

Born in Essex, England with a heavy dose of ‘travel lust’, C.M.Gray has since been lucky enough to live and travel in many countries around the world. In fact he has lived for more years outside of England than he has living there! Working as a carpenter, fruit picker and even a stint in stock brokering, he has called home Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayan Mountains, the clamor of central Hong Kong to a farm in deep rural Burgundy. Forever vowing to return and sink his roots once again in English soil… some day, he hasn’t quite made it back yet, but does live a little closer these days; just outside of Barcelona in the middle of the forest with his dogs and two wonderful children. C.M.Gray’s writing is mostly fantasy and many of the experiences he has had in Asia, Africa and the middle east come to life in his writing. The Flight of the Griffin, a finalist in The Times/Chicken House literary competition 2013, follows the adventures of a group of young friends as they battle demons and bandits on a magical quest to stop the world from tipping into Chaos. Shadowland blends fantasy with history as an old story teller takes his audience back to Britain’s dark ages and the birth of the Arthurian legend. The Sequel to The Flight of the Griffin, Chaos Storm was published Autumn 2013, while the Sequel to Shadowland, ‘The Shadow of a King’ will be published summer 2015.
