About the author:
Scott McCloskey has searched from the eastern United States all the way to Osaka, Japan, but has uncovered no Elvish rings of power, nor magic swords to hold aloft. Blame books for teaching him never to give up. In the meantime, he takes breaks here and there to pen the almost plausible adventures of siblings Theodore and Marie Ellsworth in The Gossamer City, as they are dictated to him by the diminutive gnomes with hummingbird wings that have been flitting unceasingly about his bedroom at night since he was your age.

Scott lives with a loving wife who puts up with his idiosyncratic bent, two adorable girls to whom he sings scratchy jazz tunes at night, and several Russian Wolfhounds. His first book, The Goldenwealth Light (Book 1 of the coming-of-age adventure series The Traveler of Ord) is available in paperback and digital formats.

Rather than being a hero with the fate of an entire world on his shoulders, Theodore Ellsworth spends his miserable days suffering merciless humiliation at the hands of prep-school bullies. It just so happens that an ancient prophecy, a shimmering city, and a herd of six-legged horses are about to change all that.

When a mysterious book transports Theo and his overachieving little sister Marie to a world full of wonders that defy anything he's ever read about before, Theo finds himself accused of a crime he didn't commit that carries the ultimate penalty. A reluctant princess, a winged gnome, and a hot-tempered young sorceress are there to help, but will they be enough to prove to an arrogant knight and thousands of fanatical citizens that the Ellsworth children aren't an evil that must be destroyed?

Told in the tradition of classics like The Chronicles of Narnia and The Neverending Story, The Goldenwealth Light is the first book in a fun-filled romp through the unique realm of the Traveler of Ord, weaving high adventure and deadly intrigue in a fanciful tapestry that will keep readers from ages ten to adult turning pages for hours.
