Not all fairytales are about beautiful princesses and dashing princes. Some are about the corpses living below our very feet....
Reviewer Tyler Quevedo says of The Balderdash Saga series: "I originally read the story on my own first, not sure how dark the subject matter would be for young children with a story about an undead princess, but quickly my mind was put to ease as the story progressed. It covers all sorts of great topics that I value in a good story for children (and adults): Morality, Integrity, Loyalty, adventure, a small dash of romance, and most of all imagination. The vocabulary wasn't too difficult for the kids, and yet there were still occasional words along the way that needed explanation, further broadening their horizons as future book connoisseurs. ... If you're looking for a short read with great life lessons and core values for a budding adult, I'd recommend this book!"
From the author of The Underground Princess, which Mother Daughter Book Reviews calls "A little gem of a book - brilliantly written."
Leadership is as much about honor as it is anything else, yet honor is relative in this short story that follows Hurlock the Warrior King.
Hurlock leads an army against the evil mage Kahster, who is hiding behind a strange fog that suffocates the small town of Ashcroft. As Hurlock fights his way toward the sorcerer, he is faced with a difficult choice: be a leader, or become lost in the fog forever.

About the Author
I would love to say that from the second I could use my fingers, I began to write, but I can’t. Sure there were times through my life when writing surfaced and fell away, but the truth is, I couldn’t even read all that well through most of my teens. Then one day, my father gave me a copy of "The Stand" by Stephen King, and even though it took me a year to finish, I did it. This experience changed my life. From that point, I strove to become the best reader and writer I could be. I was driven by an unbelievable passion to become a writer, and here I am. I truly started from the bottom and worked hard to become who I am now. I am a believer in the words. Reading saved my life. Writing made my life.
