About me the Author...
I was born and raised in a small Texas city (a mere town back when). My overwhelming desire to travel abroad led me to my own ancestral lands of Scotland. Amidst the majesty of aged castles and majestic sceneries...a passion and interest in lore and fantasy was born. Out of that passion I embarked on delivering a mystical adventurous fantasy tale full of thrills, drama and spellbinding enchantment. I wanted to do something that had not occurred before with exceptional comparisons to terms associated with mythic lore, so I "created" a new concept involving the powers of light and darkness and thusly the "Wolde" was born. (Yes, obvious comparison to "World".) I wanted a new idea involving the typical wizardry kind and soon the idea of their emergence from the rainbow allowed me to further explore a creative new approach to their existence that hs never been done before. Please enjoy the tales and legends as much as I enjoy creating them for you! Love & Peace to all and thank you for reading!!- DS
After three of years of development and a diagnosis of melanoma cancer, the grand tw0 part epic opening tale began with the release of The Middle Times: Rise of the Goblin King in summer of 2010. Later that same year in fall, the shocking conclusion to the Rise of the Goblin King was released...The Middle Times: Lost Kingdom. Late November 2010 a special legend entitled The Middle Times: A Holiday Tale (Legend of the Rose Sapphire) was released at Amazon.com in ebook only. In spring 2011, the author revealed book three in the literary series as the mystical and enchanting tales from The Middle Times era resumes in The Middle Times: Search For Elray. The third story launches a new story arc yet retains all the lovable characters from the opening stories.

"I appear to be well after my treatment stopped. I know there are many out there that are not as fortunate. My heartfelt love goes out to each of them and I pray one day medicine will find a cure. Knowing that- I cherish every day knowing you are never out of the woods once you venture into the dense forest of cancer." -D.S.
