John Daulton is a fiction, fantasy and science fiction writer with a love for stories that take readers “somewhere else.”
Captivated as a child by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit–read to him before a fireplace over a perfect span of winter nights–he was made forever a fan of the fantasy genre and, from that, eventually grew the desire to create magical worlds of his own.
Years passed, life doing what it does, but eventually the raw awesomeness of R.A. Salvatore’s Dark Elf Trilogy inspired him to pursue writing as something more than a hobby, including providing the motivation for him to go back to school and obtain both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English.
His debut novel, The Galactic Mage, spent several weeks in the top ten for Amazon’s Kindle science fiction and fantasy, and continues to thrill readers with its mixing and blending of those two genres. The Galactic Mage series continues with the second installment, Rift in the Races, released in January 2013, and the third book, Hostiles, which came out in June 2013. A fourth novel in the series is underway. Updates on John Daulton’s upcoming works can be found at DaultonBooks.com.
