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!

I first met Chaiko years ago, when Paul was just starting out writing. Right away I saw him as a living, breathing person, and couldn't stop turning the pages to see what would happen next. Now that 14 Stones is published, I hope more readers will get to meet this compelling young man, searching for more in life than relentless struggle for enough food and shelter to stay alive another day.

A very good read. Well edited. Looking forward to the next book.
Given the era the story takes place, 14 years would be almost middle aged, so I can believe in the story. Keep up the great work Paul. Thank you.

Having read most all of Paul Telegdi's novels, I agree that he has written another great read. My criteria for a book is that I be entertained, and he has certainly done that again. I look forward to more.

A great story of personal triumph in the face of many obstacles.

Overall the story is not as predictable as some stories are and with each chapter I could not wait to see what Chaiko did next.

Review by: Dean Thompson on May 07, 2014 :
Yet another excellent book by Mr Telegdi. Well told and well edited. My only small gripe is I think the main characters are a bit young given the amount of wisdom and maturity they show throughout the book, and I would have found this aspect more plausible if it were 18 stones rather than 14.
Still, a most enjoyable and gripping story, one of the best relating to this era that I have read. Highly recommended.

Review by: David H. Keith on April 25, 2014 :
I must admit that I downloaded this book with trepidation, being as I download so many books here that are poorly written and seem to be published just so that the author can claim to be a writer. Telegdi's book, however, is a breath of very welcome fresh air. The man knows how to capture and hold a reader - and to do it in an intelligent, coherent, and well-edited manner.

I found myself caught up in Chaiko's world from the first paragraph. I could sense his frustration, sorrow, and pain at no longer being able to become a Hunter. I'll not give any spoilers, but Chaiko finds himself and learns that even impossible dreams sometimes can become reality.

If you enjoy a taut, compelling adventure story filled with danger, suspense, and human drama, then you'll love this one. I highly recommend it.
