What would you do if you found an evil dwarf in your bathtub?
In Robert Darkly’s case you scream like a girl… and then you get taken on a journey to an entirely different world living just on the other side of our own reality; a world where fairy tales are real but not in the way we’ve come to expect them.
The aforementioned dwarf, Rumpelstiltskin, has escaped the Tower prison of Thiside determined to finish the sinister plot he started so many years ago.
Robert Darkly, oblivious that he is the son of the Mad Hatter, must partner with the mysterious ‘Agency’ to pursue Rumpelstiltskin across our world and the world of Thiside and uncover the treacherous secret that threatens to throw both realities into eternal chaos.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Comic fantasy is a different genre because it pokes fun at everything. It aims to amuse and provoke thought while lightly taking jabs at society, religion, and low-level celebrities 🙂 You also have to write it in the nude. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been kicked out of an internet café/library/Kinkos.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Writing a novel is like running a marathon…without water…being chased by wolverines…while juggling… difficult during the race but very satisfying to find you’re still alive at the end. Keep going!
Andrew Buckley (born 1980 in Lees, Manchester, UK) – is a contemporary Canadian novelist (an author of satirical fiction), marketing professional, freelance writer, and podcaster.
Buckley attended the Vancouver Film School’s Writing for Film and Television program where he graduated with Excellence. After pitching and developing several screenplay projects for film and television he worked in marketing and public relations for several years before venturing into a number of content writing contracts. During this time he abandoned screenwriting altogether and began writing his first novel, Death, the Devil, and the Goldfish, which was published in December 2012 by CQ Press.
Andrew lives in the Okanagan Valley, BC with his wife, 3 children, two evil cats, and a very needy dog. Fueled only by Pop Tarts and Tetley Tea he spends his time writing, working, and podcasting for more hours than are actually contained in a day.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have a fond love for fairy tales. Not the cute fairy tales with the singing animals and chirpy princess, where everyone has an odd shaped nose except the main character. I mean the old fairy tales that were dark and scary and actually had a moral opinion. That’s where Stiltskin came from.
