Garth Reasby has always enjoyed creating and has channeled his creative energies into art, music, prop making, and writing. A renaissance man, Garth has had various jobs ranging from bodyguarding religious figures to project management.
“Awaken” is Garth’s first novel and allowed him to borrow concepts and experiences from his rich personal history and form them into a very modern tale of super heroes in the real world. In addition to a follow-up novel in the Children of Divinity series, Garth is preparing works for a number of anthologies and a new fantasy series.
Garth was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently lives there with his wife Heather Reasby, also an author, and their menagerie of animals. When Garth does find time to relax he enjoys reading, comic books, video games, music, camping, and off-roading, as well as putting a few hours in at the range to keep up his firearm skills.
The founders of Talaria Press come together for a follow-up to the "Quests & Answers" anthology with this new collection of short stories and novellas inspired by classic fairy tales and fables, and even a few all new contributions to the genre.
