Meet the Author

The Keys To The Palace Of Bliss is an autobiographical fairy tale. During my 22 years of blissful wanderings, I have been described as a contemporary Pied-Piper/Peter Pan. The tales told by the main character, Theo, are the unbelievable true stories from my own direct experience, on the road in 80 countries, living solely from the magic of the flute.

    I can hardly find the words to express how much I admire Todd Calfin’s The Keys to the Palace of Bliss, but let me try.

    This little gem is at once hauntingly familiar and utterly original. It is a small classic, right up there with Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince as a fairy tale for grown-ups, and Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet as a remarkably simple and charming expression of profound truths about life.

    To say it is suitable for all ages would be an understatement. It should be required reading for all ages.

    I suppose I am worldly, educated, and some might say jaded. Most modern spiritual books and new-age philosophies leave me cold, with their overreaching and often syrupy platitudes. Calfin’s book, in complete contrast, got right through to me with its unassuming grace, like self-evident wisdom spoken by a precocious child.

    It took me maybe an hour to read and I don’t think I will ever forget it. Do yourself a big favor and READ THIS BOOK. (David Katz/ author of Round Trip and Conspiracy)

    This book is a fantastical tale that subtly weaves together wisdom, wonder & whimsy, giving the reader some secret "Keys" to finding inner bliss, happiness and peace. I particularly like the simple, childlike narrative and playfulness in which the profound messages are delivered.

    Sweet -- but . . .

    This was a nice story. But the author over used the tool of repetition. Some repetition is a handy writing technic, but half way through this story I found myself skipping over pages because it was the same thing as earlier passages (previous days in the story).

    A perfect book for all ages! We are reminded of the happiness that comes from returning to our child-like innocense and finding joy from the many adventures the universe gifts us. The Keys to the Palace of Bliss acts as a guide in reminding us the simplicity to finding happiness. Thank you for this gift of a book. Theo continues to act as a companion for me as I continue to travel, reminding me to trust in the universe, finding joy in every step I take! Thank you, Thank you! Aloha! ~Shekhinah

    Lighthearted and funny but carrying a profound message. Todd's beautifully crafted tale shares the wisdom obtained from a man who has lived in simple bliss all over the world. Follow the delightful anecdotes of the forest-dweller flute player and find your bliss within. Todd's writing is concise yet complete. There is meaning and sincerity behind every sentence. A Incredible one of a kind book and audio-book worth reading 10 times over! -Mike Devloo

    A MAGICAL TALE! A MUST READ! Todd Calfin offers us the Keys to B

    A MAGICAL TALE! A MUST READ! Todd Calfin offers us the Keys to Bliss! He brilliantly weaves together true travel tales of great wonder, Zen wisdom & humor, and a story line that flows and nourishes like spring water. I feel completely refreshed, practically rebirthed, from this awesome reading experience. Much like Coelho's The Alchemist, The Keys To The Palace Of Bliss is a simple story with profound truths! I actually enjoyed this story more than The Alchemist! The Keys offer me a secret place of refuge in this rather chaotic Universe of ours and gives me hope that true happiness is actually attainable. I truly wish to thank the author for birthing this literary treasure! It is a work that I will cherish forever! Thank you! From my heart to yours, Andrea Finkle
