Brad Towers writes fast-paced fantasy adventures with a touch of humor. He wrote the first three novels in the Zephyrion cycle (The Emperor’s Hunt, The Silver Prince and The Warrior King) all within one year. Since then, he has taken some time to revise them, with the intent to publish them in 2017 or 2018. At the moment he has plans for at least three more novels in the Zephyrion cycle, and for two other series. See the Books page for details.
He is one of the founding members of the OtherWorlds writing group in Zurich, open to local novelists who are serious about writing and improving their craft.
On Brad’s bookshelves (or Kindle) you will find fantasy novels from Sir Terry Pratchett, J.R.R. Tolkien, Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson, Jennifer Fallon, Karen Miller, and Ella Summers; various historical fiction series (Conn Iggulden’s series on the Mongols is among his favorites); fast-paced thrillers from John Clancy, James Patterson, and the Australian author Matthew Reilly; and his wife’s impressive sci-fi collection.
When he is not writing, Brad travels the world, spends time with his family, and works part-time at an internet company as an Engineering Manager.
