 Home of Fantasy and Fun

My name is Rick Haynes and I write fantasy novels and short stories in different genres. Several have been published in Scribble magazine, the Star and Crescent, the Portsmouth News and in The Chania Post in Crete.
I love writing Drabbles. And I'm proud to say I’m an award-winning Drabblist.
Here’s what reviewers have posted about my two fantasy novels, Evil Never Dies and Heroes Never Fade.

‘In style, it's very reminiscent of David Gemmel with an easy to slip into world and plenty of excitement, balanced with some reflection.’
‘Haynes has also created a world of good and evil, darkness and light and is very Gemmell-like in the way it functions, there  is no grey here, we, as the reader, know whose side we are on.’
‘Prepare for a nerve-tingling ride through a fantasy world of medieval warfare, a world that springs to life under the skilled pen of an author who has thoroughly researched his subject. The characters are full-blooded, their relationships to each other clearly drawn. The warriors leap off the page, wielding their weapons with skill and courage as their battle of right against might is mirrored by a power struggle between their gods.’
This is my world

Ever upwards, never stopping, the staircase to the heavens awaits all those wishing to dream. 
And all you have to do is place one foot on the first step. 
Consider the endless possibilities, as you climb higher and higher.
Boredom is unknown in my time and space, for can you not see the stars sparkling bright, ready to enlighten you? 
Is your mind ready to absorb the endless possibilities of a million words? 
And are you ready to join me on a magical journey? 
I will embrace you with open arms.

And welcome you into the world of my imagination.
