Carl Hackman


Bio

After serving eighteen years in the British Royal Navy, Carl was medically discharged with a broken back and started his first novel. He had almost completed it when he had to put it aside to earn a living wage. He taught himself Visual Basic and became a computer programmer. Although it paid enough to live on he felt unfulfilled and be-came unhappy with the rat race. He and his wife decided to move to the Dominican Republic for a slower pace of life.
He started to write GERALD, his second novel. The first draft was completed within six months and went through revision after revision until he had it shining like a new penny. James Wymore saw the novel and championed it through a few more revisions and it was finally be published by Immortal Works as his debut novel in May 2017.
Since finishing GERALD, Carl has completed JAGUAR, the first novel he started, and has completed the second in the GERALD series. He is now half way through his fourth novel about an Anglo Saxon boy. They are all very different and say a lot about his interests in life. Fantastical worlds, animals and medieval England. When
Carl is not writing he paints animals and some of his art can be seen on his website.
In Carl’s ideal world he would be writing novels and painting magical creatures such as Dragons, Unicorns and Phoenixes.

Gerald Becomes A Wizard

Life as a Royal Equine Poop Coordinator isn't the life for Gerald. His family business revolves around the rear end of horses and, as far as he is concerned, that is something he is not destined for. The life of a great wizard is on the horizon and Gerald is sure that when he reaches four feet eight his wizarding gene will kick in, and he will become what he has always dreamed of. Of course the fact that no-one in his family tree, as far as anyone can remember, has ever been a wizard could put a kink in Gerald's plans, but we'll see what happens.

This is a short story which takes a little peek at the year before Gerald's dream comes true. The journey and actual achievement of his dream was not a smooth ride.
