Gillian Bronte Adams is a sword-wielding, horse-riding, coffee-loving speculative fiction author from the great state of Texas. A love of epic stories and a desire to present truth in a new way drew her to the realm of fantasy. During the day, she manages the equestrian program at a Christian youth camp. But at night, she kicks off her boots and spurs, pulls out her trusty laptop, and transforms into a novelist.
Storytelling began at an early age for Gillian, but it was during her senior year in high school that she began to pursue writing and the road to publication in earnest. That road led her down many adventurous paths as she studied novels, practiced the art of writing, and began to attend writers’ conferences where she eventually met and signed with her agent. Orphan’s Song, book one of the Songkeeper Chronicles, released Fall 2014 from Enclave Publishing, followed in the Spring of 2015 by Out of Darkness Rising from Magpie Eclectic Press. Songkeeper, book two in the Songkeeper Chronicles, joined the mix in Spring of 2016 and the third book (with an as of yet undisclosed name and top secret release date) will be coming soon.
Gillian is represented by Amanda Luedeke of the Macgregor Literary Agency.
