The Devon-based fantasy author Daniel Hill will be at Sidmouth Library on Saturday, January 12 to chat about his recently published debut novel.

Daniel grew up in Budleigh Salterton but now lives in Exeter.

He began writing his novel, The Rise of the Apostate, six years ago, and it took him four years to find a publisher. The book was finally published last May.

It tells the story of a man who wakes to find that his village has fallen victim to a dark curse, killing everyone except him. He meets a mysterious stranger who belongs to an ancient order of magical warriors, and sets out to join them and fight the forces of evil.
