Aubrey and Neville had always wanted to have an adventure of their own. Like those they had heard about in stories or read about on the rare occasions a book was available. They even knew what adventure they wanted to pursue. Since they were very young boys, they had always spoken of one day journeying beyond the Crystalline Sea. They had even gone so far as to train themselves in some of the tasks they would need on their journey; walking long distances, using stout branches as swords to develop their hero-like blade work, and sailing a small homemade boat on the lake to develop the seamanship they would need to cross the great ocean. Yes, they were certain they had prepared themselves completely.
The summer of their fifteenth year was swiftly approaching and they deemed it was nearly time for the adventure they dreamed of to become reality.

About the Author
I live and work in Minnesota as an IT professional. My house is a very busy place with 3 or 4 children (depending on the time of year and the schedule of sleep-overs and such), 2 cats (sometimes 3), and one very hungry turtle named Myrtle; as such, time for writing or nearly anything else is at a premium!
I have wished to write this book (Friends of the Crown) for a very long time and have spent years on it....when I could. Quite often it is hard for new writers to find or create the time necessary to really refine their ability; Friends of the Crown was written in many bits and pieces over the course of nearly ten years. I kept at it largely because it was the one story I truly wished to get "on paper". This story began as an ongoing tale told to my sons while on long drives in the car; now they can find out how it all fits together in one complete story!
I am working hard at making more time for writing -- especially since the full tale is not yet complete and I want to see how it turns out! :-)
