Local author for June - Richard B. Ogle

 Sorcerers Reborn: Earth by Richard B. Ogle

Questions for Richard

Q: What is one thing you want people to know about your book?

A:  Sorcerers Reborn: Earth is the beginning of a journey that begins right here in Alberta. In a not-so-distant future, a Sorcerer is Reborn. You will meet a cast of characters and go on quests to find artifacts of magic that lead to an unexpected end to book one.

Q: Why did you become an writer?
I always had a vivid imagination and often wrote ideas on a notepad or whatever was available. Poems, short stories, and tales of fantasy. When I decided to leave my career as a tradesman, the most logical direction for me to go, was writing.

Q: Do you have any advise for new and upcoming authors?
I do not have a definitive answer for this question. Writing itself is mostly a solitary endeavor. There are many resources for upcoming authors such as your local library. Writing workshops and writing groups are proven resources as well. Writing is a marathon not a sprint and you will run into hurdles as you go. Stay strong and never give up.
