About Me

My Story

First, the important stuff. I’m an absolute slave to spicy chicken wings. Which used to be a problem, but now I’m on Keto which somehow makes it perfectly okay. I’ll take that win.

I’m still not over Buffy finishing and I’m not happy about the end of Game of Thrones (but sometimes I watch that Arya scene with the Night King over-and-over.) I don’t understand why they stopped making The Originals, Grimm, Warehouse-13 and A Town Called Eureka. I loved those shows 🙁

I started writing my first book, Amazon #1 Best Seller and-I-have-the-screenshot-to-prove-it “FADE” in 2014. I put it aside several times before finishing it in 2017, probably because “writing an actual book couldn’t possibly be a real goal.” I mean, who actually finishes a book, right?

Book 2, The Network, followed November 2018, and Book 3, Portal, in March 2019. 

I plan to return to the Faders series. But in the meantime, I got a co-writing gig with a really impressive and slightly scary indie publishing big-hitter, Michael Anderle. If you’re interested in how I got to write with him, it’s in the notes at the back of our first book. Trust me, you’ll smile. The series we’re writing together is The Legacy of the Shadow’s Blood and book 1 is The Flawed Legacy.

I live in England with my all-male family of two other humans and three dogs. I’m seriously outnumbered. 

I love to chat so please visit egbatemanwrites.com where you can join my reader list and get a Legacy prequel story, or visit facebook.com/egbatemanwrites where you’ll find me when I’m supposed to be writing… my bad.

Mission Statement

I aim to write fun, urban fantasy fiction for readers who want to immerse themselves in stories as great as I can make them.

I promise you right here and now, I will never, ever, kill the dog. Unless it’s a bad dog. Like, a demonic, evil dog, but otherwise, nope.

I will do my very best not to leave you hanging off the edge of a cliff at the end of a book.

The Faders

My paranormal powers awakened. I had the ability to see the mysterious, dangerous Faders, and I can shoot lightning from my hands. As soon as I learn to control my powers, I’m going to dump 50,000 volts into any Faders I can find.
