Author interview:

What inspired The Prince Martin Epic?

In 2015, I was deployed overseas with the military. As the days and weeks went by, my young son lost interest in talking to me on the phone. I just couldn’t connect with him. Then it dawned on me: I should tell him stories about “Prince Martin.” From then on, he’d beg to talk to me when I’d call home. Upon my return, my lovely wife encouraged me to turn my stories into books so lots of kids could take delight in them. This is book two in the Prince Martin Epic children’s action-adventure series. 

Can Prince Martin and the Thieves be read as a stand-alone?

Absolutely! But if kids want to discover the back-story of Martin and Ray, they’ll love Book 1: Prince Martin Wins His Sword!

Tell us about the art? 

Jason Zimdars is a brilliant artist. He uses vivid color instead of black and white, which is rare for a children’s chapter book due to the high production costs of color. Thus, his art explodes off the page. This book is a page-turner to begin with, but Jason’s electrifying illustrations give it such a jolt! It takes on a life of its own. My favorite illustration is Jason’s beautiful rending of Prince Martin and Sir Ray camping out under the stars on their journey to the Duke’s. It’s a sublime picture for one of my favorite scenes, which evokes fond memories of my childhood campouts. I also love the towering treehouse overlooking the ocean of trees in the forest. It’s simply majestic…

Despite their attempts to remain focused on their task, the friends are finding it difficult and must use all their combined resourcefulness to persevere.

Riley is struggling to keep a number of potentially damaging secrets which could completely unravel their journey, while Luza is recovering from her injuries and the poison given to her by Bilal’s dog. She knows that she must somehow regain her strength in time to fulfill the prophecy, but, like Riley, the fox also knows more than she’s telling and it could cost Keira dearly.

Meanwhile, Keira has a brief reunion with her father and must come to terms with the new found knowledge that her life has changed forever. Accepting it, and her new task, is a different matter however, and she isn’t sure if she will have the strength to do what is asked of her.

Can the three friends be prepared before Bilal returns to seek his revenge? Will they fulfill the prophecy or will the forces of Sohon win the war over Lane, his daughter and all that is good in the forest?
