Why Read a Clean Fantasy Adventure?
Most will agree that society has a problem.
Lewd imagery, violence, and destructive language bombard us daily. Whatever adage you apply, “garbage in, garbage out,” “you are what you eat,” or “he who makes his company of fools will be destroyed,” the message is clear—as we consume negativity, society becomes negative.
The Galendor Trilogy offers readers an uplifting adventure with characters who truly care for each other. Conflict is resolved with humor and thought instead of graphic war. Love, faith, and forgiveness are the main themes.
What to Expect
I have fond memories of parents, babysitters and teachers reading to me. Hoping Galendor would be read aloud, it is paced to allow the imagination to ponder the scenes as they unfold.
My mother never shied away from expressive words or turns of phrase, spurring an appreciation for English. Galendor incorporates a lot of literary word-play to impart this same love of language.
Finally, Galendor celebrates diversity in people as well as cultures. Oftentimes dialects, speech impediments, and unique sounding voices are typed to represent how they sound. Editors told me this was a big no-no. I did it anyway.

Such a wonderful story of friendship, acceptance, and how faith can create miracles!
Reminiscent of J.R.R. Tolkien, L. Frank Baum and even Mike Myers of SNL, the story imparts the importance of sharing time, talent and treasure with their fellow man.
