Two boys, two dragons, a magic book and an epic adventure!

Published July 5, 2015 by Michelle Dennis - Author

The lantern above him flickered to life. William knew it must be meal time if the lanterns were coming on, but he did not intend to return to his dorm. He had to work out what was happening with the leather~bound book. For as long as he could remember, William  had carried it around in his backpack, but the pages were blank. That was until he had turned seventeen, just days before. Suddenly, from the day of his birthday, words began to appear on the pages. Not just words, but runes, which swam across the page, and curly letters forming strange words that made his eyes strain and his heart race. Stranger still was that the words were written in handwriting that seemed familiar to William – like that of a long lost friend or relative.

I have always loved books. From Golden Books, Peter Pan, Puff the Magic Dragon, Redwood, Narnia, Peter Rabbit and many more, my imagination fed on the words of these stories.

As an adult, with children of my own, I still love to read stories of magic, adventure and romance. (My writing room is filled with books and trinkets a dragon would be jealous of!)

Wolfbaene is my precious gift to the wonderful world of literature and I truly hope you like it!

Wolfbaene ~ Michelle Dennis

Published January 5, 2015 by Michelle Dennis - Author

The lantern above him flickered to life; William knew it must be meal time if the lanterns were being switched on, but he had no intention of going back to his dorm. He had to work out what the leather~bound book was all about. For as long as he could remember, he had carried it around in his backpack – which wasn’t strange in itself, but, the pages were blank; that was until he had turned seventeen just days before. Then, words began to appear. Not just words, but runes that swam across the page – curly letters forming strange words that made his eyes strain and his heart race.

This year will bring lots of new and exciting things for Wolfbaene!

While I finish Wolfbaene ~ The Next Quest, I’ll be working hard at a second edition (fresh cover too!) For Wolfbaene.

2014 was a fantastic year for Wolfbaene and I’m sure the fun will continue in 2015, with festivals, school visits and much more. And to let you all into a little secret, Orrin may even be working on his own children’s picture book!

Mapmaker Chronicles ~ Race to the End of the World Book 1

Published January 5, 2015 by Michelle Dennis - Author

Allison Tait’s book, Mapmaker Chronicles ~ Race to the End of the World, caught my attention recently. Okay, as my friends know, just mention the words dragon or magic and you have my attention – but the great cover also caught my eye!

14 year Quinn leads a quiet life, on a farm with his older brothers. But, he has a special talent that has caught the attention of the king and things are about to get crazy.

The king wants a map of the world and Quinn has to help him get one. A contest is set up and the winner who brings back a map of the world will receive a handsome prize – the losers? Well, let’s just not talk about them.

Quinn sets off with a mismatched crew of slaves and stowaways to do as the king has ordered (and hopefully survive the sea monsters).

The Mapmaker Chronicles: Race to the End of the World is action packed and full of intrigue. Alison Tait is a true story teller and it’s been an absolute pleasure reading this book (nope, not to my kids – they’re all grown up).

If you love books like Wolfbaene, Deltora Quest or Narnia, you’ll love this one (and so will your kids!)
