Roland Capalbo calls New York home, living in the beautiful Hudson Valley. An area so rich in beauty, history and folklore an author has an abundance of inspiration to draw from. Roland is married with two kids who constantly provide inspiration in the creation of his storylines.
He draws his ideas from the people in his life and from the nature that surrounds him. Always a big reader of the fantasy genre, he would sometimes come across a book whose plot he just didn’t like, and in his head would proceed to re-write the scene. This is where his desire to create his own worlds began.
Rolandâ€™s first book was a bedtime story he had written for his five year old nephew, â€śThe Magic of the Pony Manâ€ť. It was in this book that the doorway for his first full length novel, â€śThe Dragon and the Faerieâ€ť, was born. He is currently writing the sequel to this book titled â€śThe Dragons Redressâ€ť.
