Children of Zachania is the story about the ancient society of the Empreen, a secret guild who for centuries have been influencing the safety of civilisation as we know it.
Descended from the legendary Zachanian’s they inherit the wisdom and extraordinary abilities of their forefathers who once ruled the world long before the time of Pangea.
Living in clandestine locations around the world, the Empreen use their powers and ancient knowledge to foresee future catastrophes and exist solely to protect us and to maintain the balance and harmony of all mankind.
The gifted’ children of Zachania’ or ‘Chamrar’ are scattered in every corner of the globe, in the USA, Russia, India and the UK to name just a few. These special individuals live unaware of their abilities and talents until they are found by ‘Empreen finders’ and then brought back to the Empreen homeland of Empare where their talents are nurtured and primed.
Chamrar are then placed into foundations of five, groups such as the Tanis and Machu Pichu foundations and when the elders discover a rift in the balance of life, these foundations are engaged to seek out the threat and act accordingly to maintain the existence of our world.
Children of Zachania, merges the magic and mystery of the ancients and the high tech advancements of the present to create a world where bravery, duty and honour clash against the forces of evil.
Since the essence of time they have fought the Shalm. Who just Like the Empreen originate from the unknown age of Zachania, the source of their heritage comes from the Zachanian’s blood enemy, the bestial natured Degrain.
Their only existence is to destroy; through the ages they have had their hand in many of mankind’s catastrophes, some natural and some supernatural. Beneath our very noses the Empreen and Shalm plot, plan and fight for the control and balance of humanity.
Sometimes it may be an Empreen elder who saves mankind or sometime it may be someone like the Californian teenager Zach Jensen who saves us. But be thankful, they are among us, living in silence and without any need for gratitude they sacrifice everything to maintain our safety and the safety of mankind.
There is a hidden world living silently within the shadows.
A clandestine world since the dawn of time, struggling silently for our safety.
A world where nightmares and demons exist.
A world where we live in ignorance because of their sacrifice.
Children of Zachania is part of the Zachania epic series.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I am not sure as tbh I am not a big reader.
If anything stands out about my writing, I would say it is my passion and the pain I have endured throughout my life.
I believe in the human spirit, how we can raise from adversary and help those around us not to make the same mistakes.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
DON’T GIVE UP!
If you are passionate about writing and you do it because you are compelled to do it, then have faith in yourself and strive continually to better yourself.
If I am brutally honest I would say my writing style is unique. I probably break every grammar rule in the book as I like my stories to flow as if alive.
When I write a novel, I structure it like I am building a house. First I begin with the foundations of the characters; I try to create them as human as possible with all the common frailties and traits that we all possess. Then I start on the frame, or the outline of the story and then it is a race to build the walls, plaster the walls, put in the electrics and gas and then CRASH! The house explodes into life.
In Zachania I sometimes have five or six different events running beside each other but all going to one direction, it is like five separate forest fires building in intensity until they burst into each other and become one.
I also love ‘dialogue’ I would say that my books are 70% conversations. I love how you can flow with speech, you can argue..teach..shout..be sincere..angry..cold..callous..loving..wicked..scary..calm….you name it, we can discuss it!
If you are after a novel that is the intellectually perfect then I am not for you but if you want to read something which will make the hair stand up on the back of necks and fill you with passion and excitement which will rouse your spirit then I could just be your ‘cup of tea’.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Because I have so much passion and feeling swirling around in my head.
I wanted these feelings to be remembered, maybe one day in the future when I lose my marbles, I want to look back and see how free and passionate about life I really was.
