Jude Cocaigne, Author
Fantasy, Adventure, Epicness
International author born in Switzerland of a Dutch mother and a Romanian father, I found my calling after binge reading all of Terry Pratchett's work.
I always thought nobody would like my quirky way with words and narration, but turns out, quite a few people do!
Fantasy is my realm, with dashes of romance and a bit of horror at times, because that's what life is all about, innit?
My first published piece (in the CEA Greatest Anthology Written, aimed at a Guinness World of Records), the short story The Girl with the Red Hood, is a retelling of a retelling of the Red Riding Hood by Angela Carter. Drawing on Carter's original idea, but adding gruesome details and an even deeper twist, I unleashed my talent and my voice in this story.
My next published piece, a novella called The Elf Girl and the Prince (in the limited edition boxed set Once Upon Another World), is a dab at romance and fairy tales of another kind, and introduces Ze World, a planet in which many more adventures will take place in the near future, as a Fantasy series is already in the making.
