Sometimes a writer travels down a road that leads in a direction that even the author is unsure. He has written children’s fantasy before, As Thick as Two Planks of Wood (also science fiction), The Chairman, The Early Years, and The God Clock. Now he writes in a new direction, exploring the dreams of childhood, the simple reality that is based on love—not complex nor wrapped up in evil plans, but as a child may think.
