Elizabeth’s Prodigal

by Margery Warder

Fact: Author’s grandfather ran away at 13 in 1875.

Family’s oral tradition: He had issues with his wealthy stepfather.

Fiction: That’s “Elizabeth’s Prodigal.”

Set in the mid-1870’s, Albert has a mother, Elizabeth, who loves him, and a stepfather, Matthew Redding, who provides more than adequate opportunities for lads his age. He has seven siblings and step-siblings, though some are more tolerable than others. He’s won the county’s top academic award, so school’s behind him. He strongly believes he’s outgrown home and he’s ready to take on the world.

There’s a matter of his Kelsey inheritance from the sale of Pa’s farm when Pa didn’t return from the war. That money would make going away easier, but Matthew will probably prevent Ma from permitting him to have it.

Besides, who really knows why Pa didn’t come back from the war? Is he really dead? Everyone knows there’s no body under that tombstone. And, if Matthew weren’t so religious, he and Ma might not think Albert’s ideas are an unrealistic to shortcut to wealth.

Albert has had it. He’s eager to take off.

Does he have even an inkling of situations about to confront him and the misadventures likely awaiting a youth so eager to grow up? Will he find who and what he’s after?

Margery Kisby Warder mixes Truth with humor because she believes God created both.

Christian Historical Fiction. Adventure with values, suitable for any reader. Includes brief discussion guide.



Conquistadors: Brothers and Kings: Orginal Screenplay

by Dennis Santaniello

The first part of an epic trilogy. “Conquistadors: Brothers & Kings” tells the story of the brothers Pizarro and their conquest of the Inca empire through the eyes of Sardina, one of Francisco’s most loyal and seasoned men. Also detailed are the trials of Manco Inca, who was commanded by the Spanish conquistadors to serve as a king to his people, and who led their eventual revolt.

Conquistadors is a screenplay trilogy that explores the Spanish conquest of the New World from the years of 1527-1542. The genre is Historical Epic. The story telling is wide in scope with various characters and events unfolding within spans of years, and is told from a truly dualistic point of view, from both perspectives of the Spanish and the Natives. 

Thematically, all stories are about the sacred vs. the profane, and each story follows a certain pattern: conquest, obsession and madness. Other aspects are also explored including religion, (of both the natives and the Spaniards), the realms of power, cruelty, and the angst of those trying to find meaning.

Each story depicts a different Spanish expedition, but in the end this is Sardina’s story. We follow Sardina through the jungles of Peru, to the vast Arizona deserts, to the Mississippi River; seeing his transformation from a young idealistic soldier to harden veteran, and later to a self realized individual.
