Author Spotlight: A.M. Rycroft

Please welcome A.M. Rycroft to Fantasy Fun Reads. She has a new book out in just a few days that is available now for pre-order. I love reading Teen Fantasy and when there is sword and sorcery involved I just can't resist so as I was prepping this post I went on over to the following link and picked up the first book in the series for only 99cents.

Buy on Amazon!

The Joy Thief releases in just two days and is available for pre-order.


Can dreams kill?

The battle against The Harbinger took a deep toll on sell-sword Aeryn Ravane and the young thief Theo Weldon. The peace they've found ends when they travel north to the city of Eben and discover a malevolent force is feeding on the dreams of Eben's children. It comes for Theo next.

She fights a losing battle as her nightmares spill into reality. Aeryn's search for some way to help Theo leads her to a dark legend and a creature no one believes is real. But is it really just a myth?

Aeryn races to find out the truth before Theo's nightmares become the death of her.


A.M. Rycroft read her first book of horror short stories when she was just eight years old. Her first fantasy book followed shortly after. She loved them both and went on to devour many more books in both genres.

Scary stories and fantasy books quickly took over her life. She wrote her first horror short when she was nine, much to the horror of her English teacher and her parents. It wasn't until well after high school, however, that she tackled her first fantasy novel, not long after reading "A Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin. This time, it was to the horror of her college writing professors, who shunned all things having to do with "genre fiction".

Rycroft's dark fantasy Cathell series is a clear melding of her two reading loves: sword and sorcery fantasy and spine-tingling horror. The strong female characters' experiences parallel the classic hero's journey, but with a dark and bloody spin. She takes great delight in drawing a rich world with flawed characters and villains that seem to get more terrifying as the series progresses. Her teachers would be so proud.
