Having served in a hundred different offices as a keyboard monkey Rob J. Hayes finally decided to follow his life long passion of daydreaming. After writing a small horde's worth of short stories, he released his debut dark fantasy trilogy &quot;The Ties that Bind&quot; in 2013 as an indie publication and followed it up with the steampunk caper &quot;It Takes a Thief to Catch a Sunrise&quot; in 2014.

In 2017 he released his piratical duology, Best Laid Plans, and in 2018 the first book, Where Loyalties Lie won Mark Lawrence's Self Published Fantasy Blog Off.

Rob has now tried his hand at Science-Fiction (Drones, 2018) and Military Fantasy (City of Kings, 2018), and even East-Asian influenced fantasy (Never Die, 2019).

&quot;One of self publishing's rising stars&quot; - Mark Lawrence, author of Prince of Thorns

&quot;Hayes spins a tale like a wushu master spins a kick - with deft speed, grace, and bone-crushing impact.&quot; - Dyrk Ashton, author of Paternus

“Books like this deserve to be read by all lovers of fantasy. It’s got just about everything you could ask for in the genre; and a few things you’d never think to ask.” – Filip, BookNest.eu

“Hayes writes some of the darkest and most brutal fiction around.&quot; - Fantasy Book Review

“Rob J. Hayes remains one of the best writers of grimdark fantasy around and should always be mentioned with Erikson, Lawrence, Abercrombie, and Morgan. He is a master of making compelling and memorable characters that always capture your attention.” – BookNest
