Charles Moffat is a Canadian writer who writes both fiction and non-fiction. He has been writing and publishing fictional works since the age of ten. His early works were primarily were short stories about pirate adventures which were published on a weekly basis in a local newspaper.
As Moffat got older he began writing more fantasy works, often delving into plots involving espionage and assassins. In recent years he has become a fan of Robert E. Howard (the creator of Conan) and become interested in traditional sword and sorcery fantasy.
His writing style is action-packed and incorporates fight choreography, martial arts with detailed (often metaphorical) plots. His major work (The Crimson Companions Trilogy) is a series of three novels which focuses heavily on firearms, a technological/magical arms race and espionage/sabotage and assassinations, creating metaphors for the real world's thirst for armaments.
One of his other works of note was "Rise of the Blade" a novel written for the popular 'Forgotten Realms' series. Unfortunately the publisher TSR was bought out by rival company Wizards of the Coast and the novel wasn't published. Years later Rise of the Blade is now available as an eBook.
