I've played bass for Shania Twain, had a black rhino charge me while on safari, and I've been in the Oval Office. In high school, I went backstage to interview groups like Bob Seger, Rush and Kansas, sorta like "Almost Famous" but without Kate Hudson! As an author, I draw from all these experiences (and then some) when crafting my stories. The quote that sums me up the best is by G.K. Chesterton: "Nay, the really sane man know that he has a touch of the madman."
I'm married, the father of four wonderful children, and a proud grandfather. I currently live near Nashville, TN where I write, bike and am always on the prowl for adventure and stories.

Tears Of Min Brock ( Book 1 of the War of Whispers series)
J.E . Lowder

Ages: Teens to Adults
When I first started to read this book, the first thing that came to my mind was Chronicles of Narnia. I read this book in a Christian attitude and one could see a Christian outlay to the plot, just as there is to Narnia. The main plot of the story revolves around the two main characters ,teenagers Elabea and Galadin, but the rest of the characters lend their own special element to the story. Raised in an atmosphere after what was known as the dark war, children were not allowed to learn how to read under the rules of Cauldron. Under the authority of the Cauldron the people could not speak about anything that happen before time or allow their children to ask questions. They heard everything. When Elabea hears the whisper of the Only call her name, the battle of the whispers begins. As Elabea and Galadin make a mistake and take down a notice that was place on the doors of their homes troubles begin. Now they are on the run back to the village of Claire that is said to have been destroyed. This is when Elabea learns she is to be a storyteller and Galadin a great warrior. As they run for their lives the Cauldron is out to capture and destroy them. When they learn the truth that the Cauldron is the evil ones that have led the people to believe on them, fathers now plan to over thrown them and go back to what their life once was. Will Elabea and Galadin make it to Claire? Is the village still there or destroyed like the Caldron said. Will the fathers turn again and go to war as the whispers of Good and Evil are once again heard throughout the land?
I know that all teens will enjoy this book just as many adults will .There is so much to this story that I just cover a miniscule of it trying not to give too much away but just enough to make it interesting. What started out as bed time stories for his children turned into these novel years later? I will wait patiently for book 2 of the series.
