The Good, Bad and Gold: The PursuitThe Good, Bad and Gold: The Pursuit was written with co-author S.K.R. and was ten years in the making. We thought the first draft was too big and took out over 300 pages to make the book more manageable. We hope you like it.

Below are some of the kind words of praise and testimonials about this imaginative adventure from Middle Earth. Also included are some fun times we had at various events.







Toluca Lake Review

The Good, Bad and Gold: The Pursuit, the first book in a series, is a tale well told with harrowing chases, writing that paints pictures in your head, characters that you truly care about and a plot full of twists that keeps you turning the page.
[The authors] create a unique world in the tradition of Tolkien while subtly teaching a lesson that is at once recognizable and yet uniquely their own. This is a story about how the bad want power no matter the price and the good stay true.
