My name is Darcie Rian and I reside in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.  I met my husband at my sister’s house, while role playing Dungeons & Dragons.  I know, shock horror!  We met and married within ten months and are now married eighteen plus years .  We are very close.  He’s my rock and favourite thing in the world.  He assures me that I am his but I do think Star Wars is a very close second.

We are very sad, we have no kids or pets.  (I’ve successfully killed lavender and mint, two plants that are apparently impossible to kill, I wouldn’t trust me with kids or pets either).  I have three nephews and one niece.  One nephew and one niece who are now young adults (I refuse to admit this, they are still six and seven in my head).  I have another two nephews who are both below ten.  I love spending time with them but also really love to hand them back.  I seriously don’t know how my sister copes.

I started writing in my late teens, when in my second job as a clerical assistant, an uber efficient secretary started.  She was used to being incredibly busy and soon took over doing practically all of the work.  Bored out of my mind, I started to write to try and make my day go faster.

Like a lot of authors, I have a ton of stories started but not finished.  Some day, I will finish them (ha, who am I trying to kid here)?  I finally finished my first story earlier this year and with the encouragement of fellow author Carole Archer, I submitted it to a publishing company.  Five months later, it got published.

    Hi Darcie Rian. I have just finished Hyperion Folly and I loved it just as much as the first Hyperion book.(which I hate to say, but I’ve read it at least six times since I bought it). You just can’t guess what will happen on the next page.
    Here is my question to you. After meeting all the hunky male heroes in H F, and the books became a T V series, who would pick to play the heroes, including Poppy? I live in the states so it would have to be a name I recognize.
    Keep writing.

      Hi Marilyn,

      I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed both of the Hyperion Legacy books and thank you very much for letting me know. It is encouraging comments just like yours, that make it all worth while.

      Gosh! Who would I cast to play the main characters? That’s a difficult one. Some characters are easy and others quite difficult. I will have a good think about the characters and do a blog post with pictures.

      I promise as soon as I get them figured out, I’ll do a ‘Who’s who” post.

      Thank you again,
