A naïve warrior and his band of misfits must survive a monster-infested wood, labyrinthine dungeon, and the exploitative, treasure-hunting guild founded to clear them.
“...[a] roller-coaster page-turner of a journey that has you guessing at every turn. Like a delicious meal eaten at the best restaurant, by the last page, you feel wonderfully sated but still wanting more.”
- Paula Wescott, Published in the New York Times
“...If you like Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, or Dungeons & Dragons books, Springtide Harvest is definitely for you.”
- Laurie Hicks, Published by Stormdance Publications
“...Fans of the classic hero’s journey will find much to love in this epic tale filled with vivid characters and fearsome creatures, where intrigue awaits around every corner. [...] Well-written and engaging, there are twists and turns (and even a few labyrinths) that will keep readers completely captivated, right up to the ending that they never saw coming!”
- Madeleine Pelletier, Published in The Arcanist and Janus Literary
“...[T]he author paints a richly vibrant and lived-in world populated by vivid characters that kept on living and breathing long after I put down the book. ...[T]here is the nuanced spice of political intrigue, the straightforward zest of swordplay, and for fans of magic (and who isn’t?!), a pinch of sorcery to make a wonderful story really sing.”
- Jenny Kay, Goodreads Reviewer
J.D. Mitchell was raised in a number of small towns in Ontario, Canada, settling with all the transience of a Preacher's Kid; a reality he escaped through fantasy and roleplaying. An Old World Nerd, J.D.'s earliest inspirations include Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Fighting Fantasy, V, Elfquest, the Dragonlance Chronicles, the Thief of Always, The Lord of the Rings, early PC gaming, and the Cthulhu Mythos.
When old enough, J.D. saved up to physically escape rural Ontario. He earned a Bachelor's Degree in History from the University of Guelph and, in an effort to outpace inflationary pressures and urban sprawl, settled in Ottawa, Ontario with his wife, Jennifer.
J.D. has won two Honorable Mentions in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Competition and longlisted for the 2022 Gravity Award. When not writing, you can find him greasing the gears of government as a proud, albeit exasperated, Public Servant.
The Author chanelling his inner Smith. Sloan Square, London, England.
J.D. Mitchell is a Canadian writer of speculative fiction. An optimistic pessimist, his stories are darkly humorous, bleakly hopeful, and informed by his historical studies and transient upbringing. The latter, while terribly angst-inducing, exposed him to a rich tapestry of people and places, as did his varied service industry jobs and a sixteen-year stint in the Public Service of Canada (but who's counting?).
