James Treadwell was born, brought up, and educated within a mile of the Thames and has spent much of his life further reducing the distance between him and the river. He studied and taught for more than a decade near the crossing at Folly Bridge, Oxford, and now lives within sight of the Tideway in West London. He holds passports from the UK, U.S. and Canada.
The first in James Treadwell’s fantasy trilogy, ADVENT describes how magic was lost to humanity, and how a 15-year-old boy discovers that its return is his inheritance. It begins in a world recognizably our own, and ends an extraordinarily long way from where it started --- somewhere much bigger, stranger and richer.
