From the Publisher

Keegan Clarke is an 8 year old junior Indiana Jones / Harry Potter. His driving desire is to be a great explorer. He has a friend and supporter in the way of Mr. Shama who owns the local general store but is in fact a retired wizard. Mr. Shama assists Keegan in discovering the "mystery cave". While exploring the cave, Keegan comes across a mysterious stone and accidentally releases some Minosaurs, legendary mini dragons. The lead Minosaur, ends up saving Keegan from the claws of an evil dragon whose plan is to take over the world.

In Keegan's little seaside town of Oceanpark, a mysterious bad guy, Reywal Dekoorc, has taken up residence along with his robot henchman (or robot teenage henchman), Datslob. Reywal teams up with the evil Draegon and it is up to Greanwold, Keegan and their friends to save the day.Mystery, fantasy, magic, wizardry, danger and fun abound.

Beginning of Chapter One: Keegan Clarke stared with morbid fascination at the worm sliming its way across his leg. He dared not move as he felt, more than knew, the evil Reywal De Koorc and his robotic assistant Datslob were not too far behind him. His features were bathed in a greenish light and he tore his glance away from the worm and stared at a huge slab of smooth rock in front of him; a stone disc imbedded in its centre. Recessed into the disc was a handprint. Keegan looked closely at the handprint and then inspected his own hand.
“That’s weird,” he thought to himself. “The handprint looks the same size as my hand. Cool but weird.”
A stone rattled in the distance, kicked by an unseen foot. He heard the murmur of voices echoing off the cave walls and hunkered further down behind the big rock. Looking right and left and back to the disc, Keegan reached out and tentatively placed his hand in the handprint. Nothing happened. He jiggled his hand in the handprint and felt a slight tingling sensation. He jerked back as a loud musical chord rang out inside his head and the disc slowly rose up from the rock and the handprint changed into a diamond shape.
Uh Oh!” Keegan, squinting his eyes looked at the disc with a mixture of curiosity and apprehension.

The Best Writing Advice of 2016

2016 was not an easy year to be a writer. Not just because of the constant, concentration-wrecking pull of our devices, their glowing screens beckoning with the promise of fresh horrors. I’ve spoken with many writers, in recent months, who seem to be facing a deeper, starker crisis of purpose since the election of Donald Trump. They’re asking themselves: Is making literature an acceptable pursuit in a world with such urgent, tangible needs? And if so, how should I use my words? It’s a deeply personal line of questioning, and I can’t supply any answers here—I’m still working things out for myse

Crimes of the Heart

S.B. Like many of his novels, Spanish author Javier Marías’ new book, Thus Bad Begins, isn’t exactly a mystery, though it is mysterious. Here, the 65-year-old perennial Nobel favorite tells the story of Juan de Vere, a young man working for a film director, Eduardo Muriel. The older man assigns his apprentice the task of finding out a secret about a longtime friend. Meanwhile, de Vere is intrigued by the cold relationship between Muriel and his depressed wife Beatriz—at some point in their past, she did something unforgivable, also a secret, and de Vere wants to find out what.

Louis Glück on Realism and Fantasy

It is entirely possible that I have never had an accurate sense of what is called realism in that I do not, as a reader, discriminate between it and fantasy. My earliest reading was Greek mythology. As with my prayers, nothing was ever deleted, but categories were added. First the Oz books. Then biography, the how-to books of my childhood. How to be Madame Curie. How to be Lou Gehrig. How to be Lady Jane Grey. And then, gradually, the great prose novels in English. And so on. All these made a kind of reading different from the reading of poetry, less call to orders, more vacation.
