Alon Shalev lives and writes in two worlds. He is the author of three social justice-themed novels and an award-winning epic-fantasy series. He swears there is a connection.
His first epic fantasy novel, At the Walls Of Galbrieth, won the Eric Hoffer Book Award – YA Category ,and was a Grand Prize Finalist. All his fantasy novels, published by Tourmaline Books, are first presented to Shalev’s sons, his harshest critics, each summer in a six-year family ritual. Book 5 will be released this summer and Book 6 in early 2016.
Shalev continues to write in both genres. Following the success of The Accidental Activist, Three Clover Press released Unwanted Heroes, which brings together an old, battle-scarred Chinese American war vet and an idealistic and pretentious young Englishman who share a love for San Francisco, coffee, and wine. Both are haunted by repressed memories of a tragic past. Shalev wrote a sequel and will discuss the complexities of building a series in both genres.
