About this product
- DescriptionWhen a dying man bequeaths hapless dreamer Quercus Robur with a mysterious bottle, his world is turned upside down.

- Author BiographyMy name is Dave Johnson and I'm from Cannock, Staffordshire, England. I started writing the Architect's Essence after an extremely hard week at work when I was feeling particularly down-trodden by my boss, colleagues and constrictive atmosphere of my work place. I wanted to vent my pent up frustration into something creative rather than destructive and decided to project my feelings into my principle character, Quercus Robur, a hapless dreamer, caged by the oppressive rules and regulations of his town. The world that I created around Querc, the Expanse, is widely influenced by myths and legends and is inhabited by a plethora of creatures both fact, fable and of my own devise. When I began writing I had a list of character names, locations and a folder full of vague and scribbled notes. I was unsure exactly where I was taking the story at the beginning and I put down whatever came to my mind, a practice that I later learned was called 'writing by the seat of your pants.' As the story progressed I incorporated ideas regarding creation, fate, reincarnation and the equilibrium between life and death. Using these notions I created a set of divine rules forming the foundations of the Expanses' reality and a workable plot.
