‘King Harold the Best is the greatest king to ever sit the throne of Terradalay. Aided by his Magical Vest, which grants him the power of wisdom, King Harold rules over his kingdom with fairness, kindness, and generosity.
But one day, his vest is stolen and all fear that the kingdom will come to ruin.
It falls to the King Harold’s most gallant knight, Sir Loinsteak, to embark upon the most gruelling trial in his career – The Quest for the Vest!
Along the way, Sir Loinsteak learns that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, and he finds help and friendship in some of the strangest and funniest places.
From a warty-witch who wants to be a beauty therapist, to a fire breathing dragon who just wants to spend his days baking delicious cakes and cookies, no one Sir Loinsteak meets is quite who they seem.
Will Sir Loinsteak learn from those he meets and save the kingdom in time? You’ll have to find out!’
This story is a labour of love for me. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with tales of epic fantasy and science fiction. Dragons, wizards, witches, swords and magic, made up lands with funny names and in-depth history – you name it, I’m into it.
‘The Quest for the Vest’ is, in a lot of ways, a homage to my childhood and the writers and artists who made it so enjoyable. My aim is to take a humorous look at all the fantasy tropes and stereotypes and turn them on their heads, while telling a fun-filled adventure story that children can take a message away from.
I’ve been having a tonne of fun creating this book, and things are just warming up!
