H. M. L. Swann is an American writer and teacher. She has taught in the U.S.A., Mongolia, and South Korea. Living and working abroad has given Swann a new perspective on her mother tongue. What started as grammar lesson plans grew into her first novel.

A lover of all things make-believe and magick, Swann writes genre fiction. Having finished two fantasy novels, The Delkhii Trilogy–Seers and Shifters and Mages and Madness, she is working on her third entitled Typhoon.

H. M. L. Swann will graduate in December 2021 with a MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester. 


Mages and Madness

Mages and Madness is the story of Melba Black, a 20 year old 3rd generation mage immigrant in the United States. When tragedy strikes her blood baptism, she has no choice but to delve into the home of her ancestors, the underworld she's never been to: Levarelthule. A place where beasts and blood magic are under the command of the Aberrant. She is tasked to do the unimaginable and needs not only strength, but sanity, to prevail.

Seers and Shifters

Seers and Shifters follows Clayton Johnathan as he embarks on his first ever caravan with the Entertainers: Mama Ta's troupe of performers. The Entertainers travel the world trading a night of wonders for food, equipment, or new technology. While on this adventure, Clayton follows Sophia Lucinda to visit Seers. He discovers the secret of where he comes from, and what that means for the Awakening in Delkhii.
