To all who have met me, and to those who I’m talking to for the first time, let me first extend a hello! My name is Colin Sharpe, and I am the author and creator of The Seventh Valkyrie.
I was born and raised in New Orleans, a place where good times and dark times second line up and down the street hand in hand, in a blur of sex, drugs, food, music, crime, violence, and at times utter mundaneity. I grew up on fantasy novels, anime, pro wrestling, hip hop, and rock & roll, with summers in the woods of central Maine, where the wild and the water make the mind race with beauty and uncertainty.
A little bit of everything floods into The Seventh Valkyrie, a series that treads the line between a magical world and the dark and colorful magic of the lives we all lead. Cyrus has a voice in his head, a growing magical power, and a deep mystery centuries old to unravel. BC has a razor tongue, a tenuous relationship with the world’s greatest crime bosses, and a dark past that will try to eat her alive. Val… well Val has two wolfhounds and sheer fucking determination, and that has never stopped him before.
The story’s about them, but it’s also about everyone else, and this beautiful, terrifying world where the mundane and the absurd interchange and intertwine, and unfold into a battle for the heart and fate of the whole world.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
