Author of BIG LONG BOOKS; an epic Arthurian saga.
l.a. wilson: independent author of 'the silurian' series of 8 books based on the legendary king arthur. critic of the
status quo. Passionate and iconoclastic writer - an artist who
cannot by the LAW of having rebellious DNA conform to the mass-market of what
is conventionally published.
"If you want something done, then do it yourself," ended up being the method
of how I wrote all of the books in The Silurian series. These
are the books I wanted to read about Arthur myself. The Bear of Britain;
commonly known as King Arthur. His story told as a first person narrative by
his closest friend, Prince Bedwyr, called the Fox. This is the story of their lives together in an age of hero-making: post Roman Britain of the Dark Ages.
i did not take the easy road with the writing of this series; but the road that breaks hearts, the journey that lasts a lifetime in loyalty and love, and an endless passion for life.
my readers often ask me to make these books into movies. alas, i am not a
movie-maker, nor do I know any.
But one can only wish...
book one of the silurian series received an "honorary mention" in the 2007 london book festival.
