About Paul Telegdi

BIO: Nearing retirement, I now have more time to devote to writing (and if I don’t, I squeeze the day until there is a space/time to crawl into). Over the past 15 years, I have worked on 15 books, three of which (of the Dreamcast series) are self-published.
My website, http://www.PaulTelegdi.ca gives a full account of my life and accomplishments, which I shall not repeat here.
The thumbnail version: I was born in Hungary; when young immigrated to Canada with my family, attended University of Waterloo, Ontario, where I met my wife. Spent years in West Germany where my wife was studying music while I was learning German. Returning to Canada, we ended up on a farm in Ontario with pets. Long-time married, I boast of three sons with talent and personality.
Presently I am office manager of my wife’s private practice of psychology. I like kayaking and windsurfing. I belong to a number of writers’ groups, and often choose writing over sleeping. eBooks are an exciting new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to the wider exposure.
My motto: Want a better life? Then write it!

Excellent read. Good story, reflecting a dark period in the history of the Catholic Church, with well drawn characters. The Italian setting was a nice surprize

Loved it! Very engaging tale set in a fascinating era. I have just downloaded another Paul Telegdi book and can't wait to start reading it.

It took me a few pages to realise I was in Italy (well, not me personally, but that the first chapter is set in Italy). So I was a little 'disorientated' when I first noticed 'the clues' to the location. Other than that very minor point, I found it hard to put the book down.

The story is unique and engaging. Thankfully, this book is free of the many distracting typos and modern expressions that detracts from many "historical" books.

The author could easily create a series of books developing other characters' points of view or continue to family story through the ages.
