Sum Lashlor Leaflin, the main character, up in three words.
Loyal; reliable; stubborn.

If Wizard of Ends were a movie, what would be your perfect dream cast?
I think Brant Daugherty for the wizard, Lashlor Leaflin. He doesn’t match the way I picture Lashlor right down to the last detail, but he’s the closest actor I can think of. Michael Malarkey would make a perfect King Lanaran Dragonsbane, with Jacqueline Fernandez playing his wife, Queen Narraki. Mila Kunis is the ideal actress for the sorceress, Assassa Tinletor.

What is your favorite thing to snack on or drink while writing?
Coffee and chocolate!

Name the title of any book that best describes you as a person.
That’s a tough one. Perhaps Douglas Adams’ Life, the Universe and Everything, since I have an interest in so many things the world has to offer – and even some it doesn’t.

As an author, what is the best compliment you could receive from a reader?
That he or she couldn’t put down one of my books and thus spent more time reading than planned.

Vanessa Finaughty is an author of many genres who now focuses on fantasy and science fiction. She’s published 15 books, of which 6 are fantasy.

Her interests include reading, photography, the supernatural, mythology, aliens and outer space, ancient history, life’s mysteries and martial arts, of which she has five years’ experience.

Publication Date: October 9, 2014
Series: Wizard of Ends #1
Genre: Fantasy

A powerful sorceress wants the Queen of Ends dead, hoping her demise will render the king unable to defend his crown. Only the wizard Lashlor Leaflin is in a position to protect Queen Narraki Dragonsbane, but he avoids using magic – at almost any cost. With creatures of darkness hunting the queen, however, he may be left with little choice but to call on the power he holds within.

Publication Date: October 23, 2014
Series: Wizard of Ends #2
Genre: Fantasy

The Queen of Ends has been cursed into a rabid creature of darkness. Only Lashlor’s old flame, Rune Arcana, might be able to remove the curse. Lashlor believes he can find Rune in the Mountains of Eclador. The only trouble is – Rune now despises him, and, in all of recorded history, no one has ever returned from these mountains. Fearing the Wizard of Ends will not be able to bring help, the king goes against Lashlor’s advice by enlisting the aid of other magic users.
