Steven Lochran

Steven Lochran spent his childhood writing stories and now he does it for a living. He graduated from Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing, and has worked as a film critic, projectionist and DJ. He’s spent the last decade in the publishing industry surrounded by books, as well as writing the VANGUARD PRIME and PALADERO series. He lives in Melbourne with his wife and two spoilt cats.

The Knights of Thunder Realm is the first in an epic fantasy series about hope, betrayal, and trying to make a better life for yourself when you’ve come from nothing. It’s also about dinosaurs, which is awesome.

      Hi Handla, sorry, I’m not sure if I can make the recording itself any louder, although I’ll see what I can do for the next episode. Are you having to turn the volume up too high to hear us?
