Author | Screen Writer

Magdalena Brynard is the author of “Achaos”, an epic novel that weaves together love, vengeance, and survival in the year 559 BC.

This is a must-read for those who crave a blend of historical richness, intricate character dynamics, and a narrative that challenges the boundaries of love and loyalty.

When we often neglect to study our past we miss out on the intricate details that in the end could keep us afloat in an ever changing world. To be able to write truly immaculate fiction, whether it is for your three your old or a Hollywood studio one must remember that the art of story structure lies in the events of our past.

Magdalena aspires to call together her love for the written word and history on an epic scale, bringing our long forgotten lives to life through fiction.

Her other works include Nkosazana Africa – Hope in transit, a selection of short stories featured on Reedsy.com as well as multiple children’s stories.
