Overview

Jeff is smart, loyal and considerate. That pays off because he and his friends are faced with "death, slavery or worse" and they know the only way they will survive is through their own ingenuity and as much magic as they can produce.

"You need not worry, young Wizard. Your first battle went well. Very well, indeed. You have quickly become powerful. A compelling force. But, it is not over. Accept the changes you find in yourself. Practice your new powers, but do not waste your time trying to understand what can never be understood."

"Are you saying that the rest of my life will be like yesterday? Or last week. Yesterday was horrendous. I can’t handle that every day. I can’t keep doing this stuff."

"Young Wizard, you won’t know what you can do until you do it. You won’t know what you can handle until you handle it. You won’t know what you can learn until you learn it. If you limit yourself today to what you were yesterday, then what you were yesterday is what you will be tomorrow. Nothing more. You came here to find out who you are and to show what you can do. Have faith in yourself -- accept these changes. You are becoming who you are."

Meet the Author

I am a world traveler. I lived and worked overseas for thirteen years, have been around the world nine times and I've visited forty countries.

My first novel,An American Wizard, is about a young man who comes of age becoming a wizard. Unfortunately, the girls around him come of age before he does. This reminds me of my own early years and I hope it will help other young men get through their early years -- wizard or not.

In my second novel, The American Wealth Wars, George Franklin leads a band of activists who become the conscience of the idle rich and the corporate elite.

The Sleeping Dragons of Texas or The Teardrop of Death, tells of a group of people caught in a chemical plant in a hurricane. They can't shut the dangerous plant down and they can't run it. Some don't like each other and others like each other a lot.

The Cybot Wars, The Alien Inside is a science fiction novel about a man who tries to save a woman he barely knows and ends up being abducted to another planet.

The World Traveler series starts with Japan, leads to France and is followed by Saudi Arabia. They all include color pictures of what I saw and experienced
