Greetings and welcome to the official blog for my Age of Valor series. You're here for one of many different reasons I'm sure, and I'm glad that you are.

For those of you who may not know me, I go by D.E. Morris in the writing world. I am mainly a fantasy writer, though I do like to venture into other genres from time to time. Most of what I write has a religious thread to it, but it is not the main focus of the story.

This series started itself a long time ago. In my early twenties I wrote what I thought would be a book within the series. The second book in the series, to be exact. Not the best place to start, granted, but it was where my muse was taking me. I completed the novel in about three years and even had a publishing offer, but it was not meant to be.

Shortly after I had completed the novel, I renewed my commitment to Christ and realized what I had written was neither pleasing nor correlative with the teachings of the Bible. So the completed novel was scrapped, and I began again.

This time I began with book one, and had a solid idea for the prologue in my head. I had a small handful of characters fleshed out, wrote the prologue, then let them tell the rest of the story. Characters came, and characters died. Writing the story was emotionally exhausting at times and mentally challenging. I wanted to make sure I was keeping things in line with where God wanted me going, but also to make sure it stayed true to the story and it was not always easy.

What became of the end product was a tale of old magic, and new thirst for blood. Set in what would be Scotland, it tells of a young woman and the battle she wages to keep her people safe from tyranny and evil. It speaks of dragons and unicorns, elves and black magic. God, Jesus, and the devil are included, though given different names. There is heartache that will leave you feeling wounded, moments that will have you questioning what you believe, and times of triumph that will have you shouting for joy.

This is the Age of Valor. Thank you for following me on this ride. I hope it's as exciting for you as it has been for me so far.
