A multi-genre author who spends too much time making maps

“Writing is my escape.”

Valena D’Angelis is one of those worldbuilders who spends too much time making maps. Though this habit turned out to be pretty useful when it came to writing her debut.

Publishing a fantasy novel in the world she built has always been her dream, and when she finally got the time, she got the writing going. Kingdom Ascent, the first book of the Tempest of Bravoure series was published in 2020.

Valena is also a Dungeons and Dragons player, so those maps come in handy!
