Welcome to my page. My name is Thomas James Dipple, a Fantasy writer living in Stourbridge, England. From this page I will be posting links to my published works as well as updates on new projects.
Let's start with a little about me. I was born in Birmingham and lived there for 24 years before moving to Stourbridge. I have been writing ever since I was at school and have always had Fantasy as my favourite genre, especially heroic fantasy.
Most of my stories focus on people, rather than events, and their reaction to the world around them. Many of them also focus on how far people can go when pushed to the extreme. You can have the most magical world imaginable, but if the people in it are nothing special then there is no story.
The horror stories I write tend to be about everyday things that could be twisted into something sinister.

Reaper's Challenge is the first in a trilogy that follows a group of guards known as The Blades.
Kavernhive is a city with powerful magic that protects its citizens. At night The Haze settles over the city and prevents people from dying of unnatural deaths.
Reaper's Challenge follows The Blades as they seek to stop a dark wizard who has managed to break the magic of The Haze and is killing people at night. The wizard is a servant of Reaper, God of Death and is seeking to destroy Kavernhive's magic, bringing panic and death to the city that has not been seen for decades
Fate's Test is the sequel to Reaper's Challenge.
After the events of the previous book, Tren is still learning his new abilities as God of Life. His main concern is Bane, whose Chaotic aura is becoming stronger.
To make it worse, slavery has come to Kavernhive and he can feel the life being slowly drained away from the city.
Far to the South in the Noman Isles a Lord has been murdered. It is up to Investigator Link to put the pieces together and work out what is happening and why the new Regent is so keen to get rid of The Guard.
Following the scent of the slavers, The Blades leave Kavernhive for the Noman Isles. They maybe out of their comfort zone but their attitude is the same and they will not stop until they have discovered what is really going on.
