Walking Through Walls - A MG Fantasy Book

Welcome to my new site. It's all about Walking Through Walls, my soon to be released children's MG fantasy book.

Walking Through Walls is based on an ancient Chinese tale and set in 16th century China.  It is about a 12-year-old boy named Wang who dreams of becoming rich, powerful and feared.  He studies the legend of the Eternals, a group of mystics who are known and feared for their amazing magical feats.  When he is sure they are real, he journeys to their home in the Loa Mountain and begins an apprenticeship with the Master Eternal. 

Unfortunately, Wang does not have the patience or moral fiber for the long and arduous undertaking.  Before he leaves his apprenticeship, he gets the Master to teach him one magic formula – walking through walls.  As soon as Wang gets home he devises a plan using his newly acquired magic formula, contrary to the Master’s warning that it will only work for good deeds.

As the illustrations become available, I'll be posting them here, along with excerpts and other content.

I'll also let you know when and where to get a copy for your son, nephew, grandson, neighbor, cousin, you get the idea. It'd be a great 'anytime' gift to encourage children to read. And, the chapter illustrations are a great tool for reluctant readers.

4RV Publishing has it scheduled to come out next month!

Stay tuned!

You can also check out Day's End Lullaby, a children's bedtime picture book. It's a wonderful and soothing bedtime story based on an original lullaby. Read about it and listen to a video review at:
