About the Author
J. A. Paul started writing short stories early on and spent many years learning the craft. Then one night after a long bedtime story, his sons challenged him to write a book. He borrowed an idea from a friend and asked his boys to choose three things to include in the story. They chose a dragon, a tree and a ruby and from the seed of that idea the story of Gladius grew. J.A. Paul set out to show his three sons that if you set your mind to something, it can be done. For more stories and information visit the author's web site at authorJAPaul.com.
