"Five stars. A fun read." -- an amazon.com verified buyer
... delightful summer reading... If you are heading out for a day at the beach and looking for a whimsical tale of a king in search of his identity we can highly recommend "The Lost King" and congratulate Dee on a job well done.
--Dale Rankin, editor/publisher, "The Island Moon"
From the Author
When people ask me what I do, I say I'm a writer. They ask what I've written and I list my publishing credits: the "Dee-Scoveries" column for the "Island Moon" newspaper, the "BUMPERTOBUMPER®" textbooks and training materials for commercial motor vehicle operators, the "Easy CDL" iPhone apps for commercial driving licensing, plus magazine and newspaper articles and even promotional copy for radio and television. Their eyes sort of glaze over because what they really want to know is "What NOVEL have you written?"
So in November of 2010, I participated in National Novel Writing Month, a writing marathon that challenges participants to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I met the challenge, discovered that I really liked the story, and kept writing in order to find out how it ended!
I like to think of "The Lost King" as a once-upon-a-time fairy-tale type story for grown-ups. Although there are dragons, wizards, and other mythical elements, it's a literary fantasy, an allegory for contemporary challenges rather than a tale of sword-and-sorcery.
