ZACH ELEMENTARY, 2013
"I'm looking forward to your release of your new Artifacts of Merlin book."
- Brian F.
"It was a wonderful presentation and I home to read the saga."
- James G.
"I think for your next Merlin Saga book the object you have your character look for on a far away planet on the other side of the universe you should have Bacon Finnegan look for King Arthur's round table that Merlin made."
- Annika F.
(Annika. That is not a bad idea. I like it. I will have to think on that and see if I can make it work.)
"Maybe your next novel could be about a dragon statue (palm size) the one found by a Wizard that it lifke folds onto his/her hand and becomes a scorcorers ring. The auqua colored gemstone on it provides magic and light up when magic is used."
- Cody L.
(Cody. It sounds like a good storyline. Why don't you start writing something like this?)

"I loved how you drew the sword of fire. Did you draw it yourself or did you copy it pixel by pixel by pixel?"

(Jonathant, I drew it by hand, then scanned it in. Then I made several versions of the sword, one being a dark shadow, the others color with flames. You can see them in the photo section of this website.)
