Meet the Author

BIO: Nearing retirement, I now have more time to devote to writing (and if I don’t, I squeeze the day until there is a space/time to crawl into). Over the past 15 years, I have worked on 15 books, three of which (of the Dreamcast series) are self-published.
My website, http://www.PaulTelegdi.ca gives a full account of my life and accomplishments, which I shall not repeat here.
The thumbnail version: I was born in Hungary; when young immigrated to Canada with my family, attended University of Waterloo, Ontario, where I met my wife. Spent years in West Germany where my wife was studying music while I was learning German. Returning to Canada, we ended up on a farm in Ontario with pets. Long-time married, I boast of three sons with talent and personality.
Presently I am office manager of my wife’s private practice of psychology. I like kayaking and windsurfing. I belong to a number of writers’ groups, and often choose writing over sleeping. eBooks are an exciting new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to the wider exposure.
My motto: Want a better life? Then write it!

    Great historical fiction

    First of all, no spoilers here. I usually do not pick up this type of book but it was free so thought I'd give it a try. This is set in Europe during the Inquistion period. The author was able to convey the fear and horror of the time without being overly graphic. He creates 4 main characters that are well developed and believeable. I am no history buff but the historical setting and events seem true. The story of these 4 people along with a large cast of supporting characters moves along nicely not getting overly bogged down with unnecessary detail. This book was 932 pages on the nook but read fairly fast. Without giving anything away, I can say that the story has a satisfactory ending. Nice to know before you invest in a long book.
