This book was written for my son, age 12 at the time, who had asked if I could write a sequel to the original L. Frank Baum book. It starts with Dorothy once again returning to Oz and meeting up again with her old friends. Many new characters are introduced as Dorothy embarks on her new series of adventures. The story borders on the mystical as discussions range from the reality of Oz to the afterlife to meeting with long dead presidents and UFO occupents who offer… (more)

Biography 


At 77 I am retired, but like to write as a hobby. This started when my oldest son was about 12. He loved The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and since I used to make up stories for the kids at bedtime, he asked if I could make up an Oz story. I had read somewhere that if you want to write you should set aside some time each day - preferably the same time if possible, and write even if you don't feel like it or nothing comes to mind. It can be a third of a page, a half a page or several pages, but at least make the effort. Sure enough it worked for me. I'd get up a little earlier each day than I used to and write for 1/2 hour before going to work at the phone company.
A year later I had about 400 pages, and called the story "Dorothy's Mystical Adventures in Oz." I self published the book as a Print on Demand book (POD) through Xlibris Publishing. Later when Amazon got started and created the Kindle I published it there. After that I joined forces with a long time Oz author, Chris Dulabone, and we wrote two books together: first, "The Forest Monster of Oz" then "Abducted to Oz." The Magic Sneakers which I wrote alone like the first book is not an Oz book, but I tried to capture the same whimsical fantasy syle. I have also writen some short mataphysical stories such as "I Married a Ghost" and "The Firepeople" but, but none published so far. I would appreciate any comments on my stories to see if I should continue to try to write. I do feel that they are quite visual and could be adopted to film or animation projects - even comic books.
