Meet the Author of "Realms the Awakening":
E. Otto Tilley
Eddie Tilley, as he is known to his friends, is a Charleston, S.C. native whose passion is inspiring children to be all they were created to be. His latest tool for accomplishing this mission is writing books. Eddie always enjoyed writing in the form of personal journaling, but he never thought about writing books to help others.
In 2006 Eddie and his family suffered a very traumatic event that led to some deep soul searching. He knew that the lessons he and his family learned could be very valuable to others, but who would want to read about his life story? After much encouragement from friends and family, he decided to fictionalize his life, add some fantastic creatures and supernatural beings, and create a story reminiscent of his favorite tales, The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings.
Eddie proudly informs potential readers of his recent review which mentions his two favorite authors; "Tilley's teeming fictive world.is something like C.S. Lewis' Narnia series dressed in Tolkien-esque heavy metal." - Kirkus Discoveries
"Growing up I had an incredibly active imagination. I would spend hours conquering dragons to save the princess and her kingdom, overthrowing bad guys in defenseless western towns, or defeating monsters that were trying to attack innocent people. As I grew older, life taught me to put away such vain imaginations and accept the responsibilities of being an adult. I was in my 40's before I learned that my God-given imagination would be the key to unlocking my destiny. Now I strive to teach children to never give up their imagination and to passionately pursue the dreams in their heart." - E. Otto Tilley
Eddie's first writing venture, The Realms Trilogy, begins with 'Realms the Awakening'. The set will soon be completed with 'Realms Knights Fall' and 'Realms Rise of the Prince'.
In addition to writing books, Eddie writes for Pointe Magazine a quarterly publication distributed in the greater Charleston, S.C. area and he writes, acts, and directs short plays and productions for his church.
Eddie is available for presentations to schools. He is an inspirational speaker who focuses on the students and how they can discover their fullest potential through the creative arts. For scheduling information visit www.realmstrilogy.com
