Amber, the middle of the five Dylan siblings, is special. When she was a baby, her older sister, Paige, a college freshman, used to read baby Amber bedtime stories. She always changed the tales into "Princess Amber" adventures. Now, even their father has started calling his "difficult" daughter "Princess," although usually sarcastically when they're arguing, like the time she came down to breakfast with a sprained ankle and refused to explain what happened. But then, how could she - when she sprained it when she was standing on the high battlements at Camelot waving her fist at an invading army and King Arthur grabbed her wrist and yanked her down when they started shooting arrows at her?
Something, somewhere along the line, made Princess Amber's adventures real. The siblings would go to sleep one evening or another and find themselves somewhere else, somewhere real enough they came home with scars, came home after the princess dealt with whatever quest she was on and they woke up in their own beds.
And then one day after dinner, when they are wide awake, they are snatched out of their home and dropped in a very gray very lifeless place near some ancient Egyptian ruins in absolute lifeless silence without even an insect ... but, surprise, with Paige's English professor and a guy classmate from college who's been trying to get a date with Paige.
There's one other person, too - a crying little girl. She's not really there, though, wherever there is. They see her, but they can't hear her and their hands go right through her.
Have Amber - Will Travel is a fun, family, fantasy quest adventure through a dark and deadly ancient underworld. There's action, adventure, magic, some laughs and a little romance. This tale is suitable for all ages.

About the Author
I go back a long ways. I was born in 1950 and started sending out my stories in 1964. I started getting published in the literary small press in the 1970's. In the 1980's hundreds of my poems were published. In the 1990's and early 2000's I sold a bunch of genre stories: fantasy, science fiction, horror and suspense. In the last decade, I've been writing novel length projects. You'll find them at Amazon and Amazon Kindle.
Over the years I've been a musician and song writer performing in failed garage bands and solo in coffee shops. I've worked in oils and water colors, pen and ink and even enjoyed taking art courses. My photography has won awards, including winning an art show. I managed to barely get by for a time as a computer programmer, but I've had about every kind of job -- like farm laborer, tree trimmer, dish washer, house painter, store manager, retail supervisor, and a whole bunch of self-employed over the years. I've had a lot of fun along the way and I think that shows in my writing.

Magnificent adventure This is an epic story that leads these characters on a magnificent adventure. The characters are well-developed and continue to grow, as good characters should. The siblings have a remarkable connection, and their interactions are real. It's a long read, but it's wonderful. I really enjoyed being engaged so dramatically within the dark world of gods and goddesses. The only thing that slightly detracted my interest was the cover, as it didn't quite fit the story of the book. The adventure was more than just a lost girl, it was filled with monsters and gods, and Egyptian settings.
