William Woodall

Publisher info

I've been writing stories almost since I was able to pick up a jumbo crayon and put words on paper. I love what I do and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share these tales with my readers.

My work is typically classified as young adult literature, if only because the stories are clean and most of the characters are young. There's more to it than that, though.

Every book I've ever personally loved has been what I'd call ageless. That is, it contains something that can touch the heart of a child while he's still too young and raw to appreciate subtlety, but there's also something in it that he can still feed on when he's old and gray, although perhaps not the same things. It's my aspiration to write stories like that.

In fact, the majority of my readers are adults who want to read something that will uplift them and make them feel glad to be alive that day. We all need beautiful stories, and without them we suffer.

Smashwords book reviews by William Woodall

  • Benny and the Bank Robber on Aug. 11, 2012

    I enjoyed this story very much, and finished it in one sitting. It reminded me a little bit of Tom Sawyer, or maybe The Sugar Creek Gang. I think it would be something especially suitable for a middle-grader between about ten and twelve years old. The story is mostly simple and straightforward, without many complexities, which is appropriate for that age group. I liked the cougar-face chapter headings; that was an especially nice touch. I also liked that it had a happy and satisfying ending. I think Jeremy was actually my favorite character, maybe because he seemed the most complex and interesting, and changed the most over the course of the book. There were a few things I thought could have been improved, of course, but they were minor. I would have liked to see a bit more action at times, and perhaps a little less description, especially near the beginning of the book, and also I thought certain characters like the boatman on the river used a little too much dialect. But as I said, those were minor things and on the whole I really enjoyed the story very much. I would recommend this series to anyone who is looking for a Christian adventure series for children.
