About the author

James Maxwell is a London-based fantasy author. Born in New Zealand, and educated in Australia, from an early age he devoured the science fiction and fantasy classics, his love for reading translating to a passion for writing.

Inspired by a strong interest in history, he decided in his twenties to see the world. He relocated to London and then to Thailand, Mexico, Austria, and Malta, developing a lifelong obsession with travel. It was while living in Thailand that he seriously took up writing again, producing his first full-length novel, Enchantress, the first of four titles in his internationally bestselling Evermen Saga.

Golden Age is the first novel in his highly anticipated new series, The Shifting Tides.

When he isn’t writing or traveling, James enjoys sailing, classical guitar, and French cooking.
