When the mage Phetrix accidentally opens a seam into another dimension, he discovers a world far different than anything he’d ever imagined. He keeps the discovery a secret, until he is forced to open it again in a desperate attempt to save the heirs to the kingdom from the usurper, Mortas Frost.

For fifteen years the children remain hidden until the wicked mage Rhoden, servant to Mortas, discovers the ancient spell and sends forces through the seam to hunt for the prince and princess.

As Rhoden searches the city of Chicago, Phetrix and a small band of loyal followers must defend the royal heirs and stop them from falling into the evil clutches of Mortas Frost. With the fate of the heirs at stake, Phetrix prepares for a battle that may determine the survival of two worlds.

Thanks for visiting!

I have been a teacher for thirty-six years. I began writing a number of years ago for fun. I’m not sure anyone starts writing for any other reason or no one would ever continue. It is something I had always wanted to do, but got started late in life.

     I took advantage of the fact that I had a student teacher one year to begin my first story. I had a blast. The story wasn’t very good, but it didn’t matter, I was only writing for me anyway. In fact, I had so much fun I started a second immediately; then a third. But it wasn’t until I finished my fourth one that I finally let someone read one. It was with her encouragement that I began researching the possibility of getting published. This site is to document my journey as a writer and all the learning this teacher is doing along the way. 

I hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to my website. There's much more to come.
