About Author James Lee Aarwen
I grew up a Texas kid, who was (and is) a little out-of-step with reality. Early on, I developed a love for all things fantasy, particularly dragons. Starting in middle-school, I read every fantasy book I could get my hands on. Soon, it was no longer enough to experience the worlds others had created. I needed to create something of my own. Thus, in the year 2008 that the dark fantasy world of Albrene was born. This marked the beginning of my lifelong quest to become a fantasy author.
Soon, I discovered God had given me a talent for writing and for creating. So I began developing this talent. I consumed all the information I could get my hands on to teach myself how to be an excellent writer. Along the way, I found Author Jenna Moreci and her YouTube channel. I credit her writing advice as the greatest influence on my writing. She has led to more growth as a writer than I ever thought possible.
Albrene is a dark fantasy world where characters I know and love live out their lives. A world where countries rise and fall, where wars are waged, where leaders and tyrants reign, and where people plot from the shadows or live in the light. The world that will host the events of the Albrene Chronicles.
This dark fantasy world and its character have been under construction since 2008. Now, I am now ready to embark on my quest to become a fantasy author and share them with the world. I hope you find the characters as interesting as I do.
Welcome to my world. Welcome to Albrene.
