ANDREW MALONEY grew up in the backseat of a car, traveling across the States and abroad with his healing evangelist parents. It gave him lots of time, staring out the window, to come up with some fantastic ideas for stories.
He graduated from the University of North Texas with an arts degree in writing and has ghost-written and edited several nonfiction books.
His fiction works include The Elementalists, a fast-paced superhero adventure; and Blue Time, the first novel in the high fantasy epic The Master Song series.
He has to admit it feels very weird writing about himself in the third person, and he wonders how that tradition got started in the first place...
Andrew lives in the cross timbers area of north Texas with his amazing wife, Christy; their two cute boys, Connor and Christian; and two ridiculous dogs, London and Merlot.
The Elementalists: A Novel
Young Adult/Fantasy Adventure/Superhero
So you wanna be a wielder?
For a handful of special students, things are about to get dangerously weird.
Fourteen-year-old Frankie Delarosa and her older brother, Cruz, are already having enough trouble in their lives. But when a psychotic entity comprised entirely of energy begins hunting them down, it will take the combined efforts of an untested group of wisecracking, hardheaded teenagers from Sevenpointe Academy-a special school for wielders of the seven classical elements-to help them escape with their lives.
Fleeing a town full of mindless zombies, being attacked on all sides by primordial beings, and facing a deadly maze intended to keep them away from the one person who can help them, the Elementalists come to realize the most important truth of all:
For better, for worse, for friends...
The Elementalists: potentially saving the world, or just really good at blowing stuff up...
The Master Song (Blue Time)
Young Adult/Fantasy Adventure
On a cold, stormy evening in Ireland, five teenagers suddenly find themselves lost, separated, and unprepared for a dangerous quest "beyond the Veil" into Morsden Forest, a secret world hidden from ours. There they must learn to grow, learn to trust, learn to fight, learn to sacrifice, and learn to love in order to rediscover the first of seven lost jewels that contain the ancient verses of The Master Song. Together with a myriad of the Awakened—humanlike animals and plants—they will battle wild beasts, wraithlike doppelgangers, and an evil power nearly as ancient as creation itself. Will they stand strong and discover the virtues they have within themselves? Or will they, too, fall to the Corrupted?
