Brodie W. Whitburn has been writing stories since the age of ten. Drawing inspiration from comic books, J.R.R Tolkien, J.K Rowling. and more recently, Stephen King, Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman and Brandon Sanderson.
Stephen King's work was the catalyst for Brodie to try his hand in similar genres, but to also blend in the types of story that Clive Barker and others craft. ’He is (of course) obsessed with Neil Gaiman and his favourite Gaiman (from the many) is ‘The ocean at the end of the lane.’
Brodie continues to pursue his dream as a storyteller as the Journey through his fantasy world of Athoria grows with upcoming novels: The Heart of Athoria: War of the Stormking, The Soul of Athoria: Symphony of the Gods, A Gift from the Waters, The Waves of Time and Winds to the West. He also has more stories to come in other genres such as more traditional Sci-fi, Lurking into Darkness, horror with The Missyng, 1977. and even a touch of Romance/Sci-fi with A Ripple in Time.
This is a story about rising up, overcoming, emotions that can get a hold of anyone in everyday life, a struggle with depression, anxiety, fear, and suicide, but knowing you are not alone in the world, there is love, hope, and family.
