Hello everyone, my name is Sean and I am an up and coming writer. I am invitingeveryone to check out two of my first two self published books titled: 'The Radical Knights of Regoville' and 'The Iron Horse Stories'. 'The Radical Knights of Regoville' is a childrens' short story on how a bump to a young boy's head from playing basketball in the present landed him in the mideval land called 'Regoville' of the past. Not only did he become a knight, but his friends were knights as well. The princess of Regoville is in need of help for a man named James and his gang is trying to take over the land. So she enlist the help of Sir Sean and his Radical Knights to defend the land. Will they be able to overpower the evil of James or will James defeat the knights and take over the land forever? This is a great short story to share with your kids ages 7-10. 'The Iron Horse Stories' is a non-fiction story on (from my experience) what goes down in the everyday life under the New York City transit system. For those who don't live in New York City or haven't been there before will find this story very interesing. You will get the sense and feel of a New York City train without having to be there. For those who do live or have lived there before, you will relate to most or maybe all of the stories I have written on here. This story is for young-older adults only.

I've introduced myself and my Romance novels before, but I hope it's all right to mention that my interview on The Authors Show is being broadcast this weekend, April 18th and April 19th.
Host Don MacCauley wrote : I have done hundreds of interviews throughout the years.Most are enjoyable, some are enlightening, a few are downright painful. Othersthough, stand decidedly apart from the group. These interviews create memoriesthat I will enjoy for the rest of my days. My recent interview with RowenaCherry was one such interview.

A children's tale, set in a sleepy village, where the gnomes come to life and help the people in the village. An ideal story to get your children reading again. Aimed at the 5-11 age group, or for parents with a child like mind.
I wrote this book in memory of my daughter, who died at the age of 27 through cancer. She used to enjoy her bedtime stories, when she was little, so it helps to keep her memory alive, and to remember the good times, which are special to every parent.
I have suffered from M.S. for over 30 years, so I hope you enjoy the antics of the Village Gnomes
