About the Author

Durk Simmons began his unexpected career as a novelist with the publication of this, his first book. Before writing Strings of Connection, he was employed on cruise ships ported in San Juan Puerto Rico, which allowed him to travel extensively. After majoring in Psychology in college, he served 11 years in the United States Army, 1st as an aviation mechanic, and later as a Cobra attack helicopter pilot. Then, after massage school, he worked on several movies and TV productions as the personal holistic massage therapist to such celebrities as Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan and Lauren Becall. He feels that what has most qualified him to write this series is his love for Mother Earth, and his fear of what is happening to her, a fear shared by all Wiccans. Durk Simmons lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with his wife and kids, where he rides his Harley Davidson, and where they all enjoy the Chesapeake Bay and beauty the watershed area provides.

Strings of Connection: Book one of the Witches in America Series

Author: Durk Simmons

Strings of Connection chronicles the Harper family line from the late 1600's to the present day. It combines the basic tenets of Wiccan beliefs and practices with a witty and creative story line designed to be an introduction of Wiccan ideals to those unfamiliar, and a fun romp of magickal possibilities to those that are.

Yes! Woo hoo! Incredible! This book was read in one night by me, I never went to bed, I couldn't put the book down! I was thrilled that finally, there was an author out there that was bold enough to put real Witchcraft in a book. I kept thinking while reading this book about all the fuss that the Harry Potter series caused with the Witchcraft and how very little true Witchcraft that it had in it. Here I was holding the golden book, the book I have wanted to read since I learned it was written. While there was some fantasy in this book, venturing off the path of Wicca, I enjoyed it so much! Who says all this doesn't exist? Didn't take place? Won't take place? I have read so many books written about families involved in the Wiccan religion and this was the one that darn near made me dance with joy! I handed the book to my daughter, age 18, who refused to read the HP books because in her words, they were `cheesy'; I awoke the next morning to find my daughter still reading. She couldn't put the book down either. We are both anticipating the arrival of the second book. That is one we will fight over for sure! Incredible book! Incredible author! If I had to say anything bad about this book, it would be simple. I didn't like how Wicca kept being referred to as the `Old Religion' when in actuality; Paganism is the "Old Religion' Wicca came to be in the early 1960's. As for stars for this book...10, 100, 1000! Keep them coming Durk! My daughter and I are waiting!

As a Wiccan, I am glad to see more novels being written in a realistic manner about our religion and magick and the ways of the old ones. this book did not disappoint me with regards to the content of the story. However, the proofreading and editing left a great deal to be desired. with all the errors in the text it was often difficult to follow the story while correcting in my mind the content. I also had difficult following Mr Simmon's dialogue with his characters due to the fact that he often did not make a new paragraph to indicate another person was talking. I am not a writer by any means, but I am an avid reader and hope that in his future books that the author will have a more capable person proof and edit his future books. It was easy to follow the adventures of the main characters and I look forward (despite the errors) to Mr Simmons future books in this series. With books like this based in reality, ascribing the working tenents of Wicca, it is very hopeful that non pagan, non Wiccan people will pick these books up and read and become educated about us and our ways. Cudos to Durk!

Wow, so many emotions tied into one story. I couldn't stop reading this book. Full of surprises around every turn. It's a story of Loving, Peaceful Wiccan people struggling with the prejudices against their religion. As humans being one with the Universe, this book truly is a string of connection. This book shares the true meaning of a loving community of Wiccan people. Study Wiccan Principles before judging one's belief out of ignorance. This book should be apart of your reading collections. Highly recommend this book for anyone.

Strings of Connection is a fascinating look into the world of Wiccan beliefs. The story is wonderful. The book makes you think about the broader universe. After reading I had many questions, just because the book makes you think and realize how many people, including myself do not fully understand. I am having my book club read the book. Should make for very interesting discussions. A MUST READ!!!!

A Kid's Review on August 26, 2006
Format: Paperback
Having never read a book about Witches, "Strings Of Connection" was a new experience. My mind was open and receptive to what Durk Simmons revealed in his first in a series of books about Witches in America. I found the subject matter thought provoking and stimulating and finished the book with great ease and fulfillment. The concept of time travel has always been of interest to me and I particularly enjoyed the author including this in the story. Since Wicca is the oldest religion known to man, I believe it quite likely that I have a Wicca (or Wicce) in my ancestory and am anxious to pursue a course on making such a discovery. Had it not been for "Strings Of Connection," I might never have been moved to embark on such a journey. Thank you for a wonderful and uplifting story. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
