Wife, mum, writer, geek, gamer, warrior poet. Not necessarily in that order.
I'm Freya Robertson. I write fantasy and science fiction novels, short stories and poetry, and I want to be a Warrior Poet because, well, it sounds so cool. My first epic fantasy, Heartwood, recently won the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Novel, a national New Zealand award for fantasy and science fiction books.
I also love military history, and I am now writing articles and producing podcasts for the With Rifle and Pack (W.R.A.P.) website. Why not call in and take a look?
I live in the Far North of New Zealand, the country now synonymous with Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Well, what better place for an epic fantasy writer to live than Middle Earth?

THE ELEMENTAL WARS
A dying tree, a desperate quest, a love story, a last stand.
Excellent mise-en-scene and detail; egalitarian society at heart of novel most welcome...a promising start from new fantasy writer Freya Robertson"
