All About Sam

Greetings to you pilgrim, and welcome to my website. I hope that traversing its length and breadth will fill you with joy the likes of which you have never known. Failing that, you can at least find information on my books, clips of my stand-up, and stupid blog articles I write from time to time.

In case you are looking for real information about me, let me commence writing in third person so it seems less biased.

Sam Bowring, also known by the street name ‘Medium Size Bow Wow’, is an AMAZING author based in Sydney, Australia. He has written many incredible books to overwhelming critical acclaim, such as the highly original Broken Well trilogy and the hauntingly beautiful Strange Threads duology. Also a hilarious stand-up comedian, he has been performing for twenty years, and been nominated for many impressive awards – although luckily he has never actually won anything, so his mild success never went to his head. He also designed a card game called Bedlam which is very complex and a huge commercial failure.

Okay, that should do it. Back to first person.

If you want to let me know of something or other, feel free to email me (sam at sambowring dot com), and then I will feel free to decide whether to open it or not. I probably will, but sometimes probably is a long time.

I hope you enjoy my site and thanks for dropping by!

For a millennium the lands of Kainordas and Fenvarrow have been at war, ever since the gods of shadow and light broke the Great Well of Souls. In the absence of victory a stalemate persists – until a prophecy foretells of a child of power who will destroy the balance forever.

Mages from the two lands race to claim the newborn, but in a ferocious battle of magic fought over the baby, his very soul is ripped apart, leaving two boys in its wake. Each side seizes a child, uncertain whether they now possess the one capable of victory.

Bel grows to be a charismatic though troubled warrior, Losara an enigmatic and thoughtful mage. Both are strong, yet incomplete. As they struggle to discover their destinies, each must ask the ultimate question: will he, one day, have to face himself?

Starring psychopathic goblins, undead mages, indestructible butterflies, shape-changing swamp monsters and an evil talking bird.
