Brandon M. Wilborn
Brandon Wilborn is a man with too many interests, and one great love. No, three great loves. Well, five. So far.
But for the purposes here, he has one great love, and that is science fiction and fantasy. He first fell in love with the fantastical and mythical while playing The Legend of Zelda and watching an old cartoon of The Hobbit when he was four years old. That eventually led him to dream of writing.
His love of science fiction and fantasy, along with an education in English and Theological Studies, inspired him to create stories that are full of epic adventure while grappling with deeper questions of life, faith, and our role in the drama of good and evil.
He has now authored The Treasure of Capric, his first novel and book one of The King of the Caves series, along with a follow-up novella, Siren Silence. He intends to publish the second book of the series later in 2019.
After a wandering youth in a Navy family, growing up primarily in Hawaii, and then wandering a bit more, he has now found a happy home with three of his great loves in Idaho.

Siren Silence: The Fate of Cpt. Bacchus (A King of the Caves Novella)
Fantasy, Christian Fantasy, YA
Cpt. Dylan Bacchus leapt from his ship with grace in his limbs and poetry on his lips.
But can any man survive the seductive siren’s call?
Kurian Abramson has been appointed King of the ten cities of Pallingham, but despite his first victory over the tyrant, Lord Evasius, he is far from claiming the throne. As the fight for the kingdom begins, Kurian is haunted by memories of his own narrow escape crossing Syrene Bay.
And guilt over losing Cpt. Bacchus.
Worse, his dreams bring visions of the vixens dancing and singing on the distant beach.
One glimmer of hope shines through his nightmares: Bacchus might be alive.
Convinced this is a message from the man who named him king, Kurian and his friends must brave the dangers of Syrene Island to save the madman who thought he could cheat the siren song.
This dashing fantasy adventure novella combines the high epic fantasy of Tolkien with the deep allegory of C.S. Lewis to follow the compelling coming of age fantasy, The Treasure of Capric.
Siren Silence explores the dangers a young man may face when he accepts his calling and rediscovers the values on which he will stake his life.
