About the Book
Charles, a lonely young outcast with an ugly scar and ungainly wings for a dragon, perched on the castle wall and listened to stories. The boy inside that castle window befriended him, and the two grew together to become kings of their peoples. Book One, "Charles, A Dragon," and Book Two, "The King Arrives," tell their stories. Now, in Book Three, "Diamonds and Dragons," their kingdoms are under attack by nations far over the eastern mountains, for unknown reasons.
Available as a beautiful paperback version in the usual places! Look for ISBN 978-1-937975-27-2. The foreboding castle on the cover is Slains Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, photographed in 2017 by Pat Ware.
About the Author
I spend my days talking to computers, but every now and then I get to pick a banjo, hit a racquetball, produce some video, and even write a story or two! From where? As they say, I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could!
I hope you'll enjoy my stories - the "Charles, A Dragon" series and the "Oak and the Cliff" stories have lots of humor and talking animals mixed in. People of all ages enjoy them, and there are more sequels in the works. The first book in the Cords of Orion series would be called Christian speculative fiction, a new genre in recent years pioneered by C.S. Lewis, among others. A new set of characters have arrived, Mac & Jennie -- taking on the bad guys with a light touch and plenty of humor, in what you might call light-hearted thrillers. And our newest book introduces Lia and her father Harlan, seeking -- and by the end, finding -- a surprising new home.
