Author Biography

Riley is an ex-CNA who found himself unable to do the job he loved. Injured, out of work, and stumbling through life, he happened to start writing down his thoughts. Once that happened, he fell in love and has been writing since.

Sara is Riley's companion. She doesn't understand the persistent need to write that her husband has, but she is a good wife who loves her husband. She supports him by making sure the drivel that leaves his mouth isn't completely full of idiocy.

Breath of the Titans: Little Black Stormcloud by Riley A. Westbrook and Sara L. Westbrook is a story that centers around a half elf, half dragon boy who just turned 16, named Lovonian. The story begins with Lov and his uncle Nord taking their annual hunting trip. On their return to Elvenhom, they find that the city’s population has been slaughtered by an army of Titans, except for those taken as slaves, when they see the collection of ears that were chopped off. With Amon dead and his mother captured, Lov and Nord begin their quest to find his mother by seeking out Nord’s old friend Jaxon. After acquiring weapons and knowledge of their enemy, they set out to rescue Lov’s mother with the help of a fairy sent by Lov’s grandfather. From there, they encounter all kinds of adventures and creatures, while in desperate pursuit.

The Westbrooks combine their talents to bring a fantastic tale of heroes, magic and unique races of creatures, each with their own agendas adding to the mix of ordered chaos. All of the characters in Little Black Stormcloud are well developed, including their own unique prejudices towards other races. During their travels to different lands, it is that mixture of ingredients that brings out a sense of humor. Whenever the irritating forces attempt to impose their will, Nord says, “I hate dragons, fairies, and haflings!” Throw in a few surprises and “Voila!” One epic fantasy adventure that will leave you wanting more.
