Wizard of Wisdom – Wisdom Chronicles ~ Book One
Wil has arrived at his sixty-fifth birthday after a directionless, purposeless, friendless lifetime. In the little village of Wisdom which sits close against the Old Forest, the last refuge of the elves before they departed this world many centuries before, he finds a place where he finally feels at home working as the assistant of the village swineherd, Scrubby.
On the other side of the Principality of Gleneagle, the wizard Greyleige has been hoarding the world’s fading magics with the intent of achieving control over the world and the eternal life of the departed elves. The ruling prince’s daughter, Princess Caron, has been tracking Greyleige’s machinations, convinced that he is the danger to the balance of good and evil in the world that was foretold in the family scrolls that were written by their elven ancestors before their departure centuries before.
Fate has put Wil, Caron, Scrubby and Greyleige on a collision course that will determine whether or not evil will overbalance goodness.
About Walter C. Conner (Los Angeles, California Author)
I am a native Californian currently living in Southern California with my wife of fifty-plus years. I retired in 2008 from a 39-year career in the printing industry which included production, sales and management. During that time, I wrote magazine articles and advertising copy but had never attempted a novel length work.
I began writing my first novel, Wizard of Wisdom, at the age of sixty-three and wrote Books Two and Three — Princess of Wisdom and Children of Wisdom — while searching for an agent and/or publisher for Book One. Double Dragon e-books accepted the entire series for publication in late 2010.
There are currently six books published in the series with a seventh (and final) book under construction.
