D. W. Moneypenny had a great concept for his book, Broken Realms. Unfortunately, he couldn’t execute on the idea. He biggest weakness is lazy writing, where characters act out of character, characters argue over silly things to simply add conflict, and many scenes that contain unbelievable situations.
As an example of an unbelievable situation, ask yourself what you would do if you saw another version of yourself. Would you try to find out who that person is? Would you wonder how it happened? Or would you have no interest whatsoever in the other person? Even when your friends are encouraging you to find out more. Evidently, “no interest” seems to be what D. W. Moneypenny thinks is believable.
You can read our review of Broken Realms for more examples of poor writing skills, but suffice it to say, we can’t recommend him. He’s made our list of Worst Fantasy Authors.
