What's the origin of these books?

These books came from my telling my daughters bedtime stories many years ago. I'm not sure whether they were more interested in hearing them or I was more anxious to tell them.

I chose to write them in the mode of Lord Of The Rings, my favorite books. The growth of the Hobbits was as inspirational as most of my real life experiences. My three main characters learn so much by taking a chance to expand their usual boundaries simply by having the courage to try. They know they may epic-ally fail, but determine there is so much good that could come from it, they become driven to see it through.

I feel a bit the same way -  I have to share this story with anyone who would have any interest in it. Hopefully you will enjoy it enough to share it with others. I'd love to hear your thoughts as I progress to the new complexities each book brings. Feel free to write to me at dg@munchkintales.com.

I will keep you posted as to upcoming books and events both here and on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/munchkintales.
