PLEASE, NO TIPS FOR THIS SHORT STORY
When I began writing in 1979, I had no idea where I was headed. Since then, I've published thirty-seven novels, thirty-three of them with traditional publishers, but in 2008, I decided I wanted more freedom than the traditional publishers would allow and began a new phase in my life as an Independent Author.
I live and write in a small village about thirty miles upstate of NYC, and share my house with my wife, Bonnie and our dog Alfie, an apricot poodle. Our three children have ventured out into the world on their own (or so they think) Our son Zach works on the CBS show 48 Hours. Our daughter Devon and her husband Russell live in New Jersey. Devon teaches Special Education. Alana, our youngest daughter is a Pastry Chef in San Francisco.
My newest release is the Sci-Fi fantasy series, Tales Of Nevaeh. This series is one that I've wanted to write ffor a while. The first book of the series, Born To Magic, was released on February 15, 2015 and has received numerous 5 star reviews. The second book of the series, The Dark Masters, was released on 5/15/15. Two short stories, Prelude To Nevaeh, are the prequels to the Tales Of Nevaeh series.
My Medieval Fantasy, Queen Of Knights, reached #2 on the Amazon.Com bestseller lists for historical fantasy and medieval fantasy, and my sci-fi paranormal thriller, Infinity's Doorway, received wide acclaim.
My last thriller, The Cured, was written with Terese Ramin, The idea for this Medical Legal Thriller came shortly after the death of a close friend, and I couldn't help but wonder about the medication he'd been taking. My previous suspense thrillers are The Hyte Maneuver, (a Literary guild alternate selection); As peace Lay Dying, and Conspiracy of Mirrors. And Down will Come Baby, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and Shadows, are mystery suspense novels.
Prelude to understanding and enjoyment. 5 Stars E. I. HOOD (Amazon Review)
Read this one first ! You will be glad you did.I rarely have had the opportunity to read the prequel before reading the book or series. This was a treat and is making my enjoyment and understanding of the first book in the series multiply tenfold .The author has a style of writing that paints pictures in my mind. I see the characters and what they see as if on a TV screen. There are few authors today about whom I can say this.
A great beginning to a great story 5 Stars By Nicholas C. Rossis (Amazon Review)
Having already read book 1, I was familiar with both the series premise and the main characters. Prelude to Nevaeh reads like an extended introduction to the main character, Solomon Roth, and his 3,000 year-long journey to the world of Nevaeh. The only thing not to like about it was its short length, as I would have loved a novel-sized book with the tale of how Roth united Nevaeh under his Dominion. Hopefully, some day Wind will share this story as well.
