a funny and cool guy from Australia | Welcome to a new friend: swlothian | author

S.W. Lothian is a funny and cool guy from Australia.

His kids call him ‘Phil Dunphy’, because he reminds them of the dad from Modern Family.  He isn’t sure whether this is a compliment or not, but he takes it as a compliment.

As an imaginative kid he dreamed of creating exciting worlds and funky characters, and thought he’d be the most famous person to ever do this. He loved to draw and was dux of Art in High School.  Top of his dream list was to be an animator. Along with his friend (who went on to be a semi-regular in an Aussie TV Soapie) they would make their own comic books – it kept them entertained and out of trouble (most of the time).

He loved watching all those classic cartoons on TV – Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Road Runner (surely, Coyote would win one day), Wacky Races, the list goes on and on. All he wanted to do was to create cool characters and stories by hand. He was sure his animation dream would happen – It was to be the perfect career.

BOOM! Then reality hit. As weird as it may seem there were not a lot of opportunities for world famous animators in his home city. The dreams were parked as reality and the corporate world beckoned. Then, 25 years later, the long-held dream to create erupted like a jam donut in a microwave and S.W. started writing children’s fiction for kids. – perhaps his awesome stories will become so popular that they will be animated one day.

When he writes, it’s for his kids. He writes stories to excite them, inspire them and teach. Stories with awesome edge-of-your-seat action and adventure scattered with fun. Stories that let adults remember the dreams of their own childhood.

His dream has evolved over the years, from superstar cartoonist – to corporate soldier – to proud parent – to children’s writer.  In his wildest dreams, his books will be extremely successful. However, it’s one step at a time.  A waterfall starts with a trickle; he hopes his books are his waterfall.

A personal update from S.W. Lothian

We are determined to get through this.

Time Square | The Shift

Time Square is a new series that is set to be another fantastic and exciting ride of action and adventure. I’m currently writing the first book called The Shift, which sets the wheels in motion and introduces the amazing characters of this great new series. Those of you who have followed the Quest series will be pleased to know that this new series was born and inspired by parts of The Fallen Pharaoh.

Here is a sneak peek at part of an early draft. Shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone, but please let me know what you think.

While you’re here, it’s also the perfect time to subscribe to my Newsflash, so you’ll be the first to know when Time Square  |  The Shift will be released.

Time Square  |  The Shift

Chapter 1

   Imagine that you’re a bird. Flying high above the valleys and mountains that stretch out far below. Now imagine that you’re gliding around in a wide arc and then swooping to and fro. That’s the best way to picture the first part of what I’m about to tell you.

   The clouds lingered low in the bright blue sky.  They slowly churned and touched the tops of the mountain peaks that stretched up from the Urubamba Valley below.  Lush green vegetation gripped the slopes, providing a comforting green blanket to the soil and rock underneath. The jungle was thick and the trek had been slow and hard, but the team knew they would soon reach their goal. The team leader, Dr Rex Hudson, had dreamed of this day for ages.  All the years of research, based on the works of the famous American historian, Hiram Bingham, had led him through a path of complicated clues, which had tortured his brain until he solved them.  He was finally on the brink of the greatest discovery of his career.

   The guides were locals, who had made the journey dozens of times before. They knew that the best paths to take on the steep ascent to the mountain ridge were on the eastern side. Hidden dangers lurked in every direction. Snakes, animals and poisonous critters lay hidden from sight. The creatures teetered between feelings of fear, and primitive instincts that urged them to attack the invaders. Alternatively, one wrong step and the team could tumble down the tangled slopes to be smashed by trees and rocks on the way.  The guides stopped every fifteen minutes so that their patrons could catch their breath and ready themselves for the next stage.  Dr Rex Hudson had trained hard to ensure his fitness was up to the job, but even his heightened physical health was tested in the thin humid air that surrounded them at almost 8000 feet above sea level.  On the other hand, his younger assistant, Leesa, was a full-on athlete.  Her youth and fitness meant that she recovered quickly at each rest stop.
