About the author:
After meeting Frank Herbert, author of the acclaimed Dune Series, I decided the life of writing was for me. That was about 30 years ago, I've been writing ever since. Heir of Nostalgia is my first published novel, and thanks to the encouragement of my loving wife Janet, is the first in a series chronicling the trials and tribulations of young man in search of his family, his country as well as his place in the world. I am pleased to present it here, for your reading pleasure. I truly believe in the gift and wonder of reading, I hope you do as well.
Here's to the land of wonder, an air of Nostalgia, and childhood memories. May we never grow too old to dream...

The fate of his entire family seemed to be resting in his hands!
For Phillip, living on the streets has never been easy, especially in New York City. Then again, when he volunteered to find his father, who has been missing for the last two and half years, stolen away in the middle of the night by a mysterious stranger, he knew the chance he was taking. After all, he was four hundred years and half a world away from home.
To make matters worse, it seemed like those he'd been hiding from all this time, may have just found him- and he knew for a fact that they wanted him just as dead as the rest of his family. Steal his country and he'll hate you. Steal his time and he'll swear revenge, but steal his father, scatter his family and banish him to another time to steal his family's throne- hell hath no fury as an exiled prince scorned.
An Excerpt from Heir of Nostalgia:
"A dark mastiff," whispered Maggie, keeping the beast in sight the entire time. "In packs they are unstoppable. By themselves, however... We used to hunt them for sport," she said.
At this point Phillip jumped in, "Surely you can do something. Look what you did with Feathers."
"Mastiff and corbie, Phillip, two completely different creatures. Mastiffs are drawn from shadow and shade, sharp corners and angles. Corbie on the other hand." She was about to say something more when the wolf lunged. With one arm Maggie swept Theo and Phillip to one side, while striking out with her 'stick.' As soon as the 'tree branch' struck the great wolf it snapped in two and burst into flame and cinders. Steaming blood the color of night, the beast snapped wildly at them and withdrew.
Fresh scarlet ran like a tear down Maggie's right cheek. She'd been quick, but the wolf had been quicker.
"Maggie!" Phillip cried, seeing the ragged gash across her forearm.
A new talent, states E. Finlayson of Staffordshire, UK. This book can be considered equally as a young adult book or an adult book. The plot is out of the usual and the writer builds both tension and atmosphere skillfully. Like other reviewers I could hardly put it down until it was finished, and I hope very much for a Book 2.
AMAZING! Says Ron You feel like your right there beside the characters throughout their whole journey. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone ready for an adventure. There were times while reading this book that my heart would be beating faster. Can't wait for the next book in the series! HIGHLY recommend this book!
