Ken Floro III
Ken was born and raised in the Southside of Saint Louis. After earning a degree in World Literature, followed by a degree in Culinary Arts, Ken soon made the obvious career move and went to work in medicine, because a little taste of reality can suddenly turn a healthy paycheck, normal working hours, and long-term job security into sumptuous delicacies. Despite the change in his employment trajectory, Ken never turned away from his dream of writing. He’d nurtured a lifelong creative ambition, which had gained direction when a funny true story he wrote for a high school English class became so popular with his classmates they traded copies of it in the hall and passed them up and down the bus. Ever since that catalytic moment, Ken has been writing as a hobby and a passion. Thus far, he’s published eight books, along with several other tidbits, all of which are available on his website, southsidecavaliers.com.

And not all of the monsters threatening the Southside Rangers are little and green.
The Taming of the Direspear
Distant trumpets broke the silence of dawn. From the East, a spear of flesh and iron then emerged to pierce the marshy delta. Imperial legionaries were advancing toward the River Direspear in a long, dense column, and dragon scouts were on the wing. War was at hand!
In Her Wake
The jungle flanking the beach suddenly erupted! Hundreds of voices let out a fierce cry and a tide of swarthy figures came boiling out of the foliage. Marc felt his heart jump into his throat as he gawked wide-eyed at the onrushing horde. For a split-second he was more outraged than frightened, but the magnitude of the danger sank in quickly.
The Southside Cavaliers Grow Up a Little
Join the Southside Cavaliers for the third installment of their misadventures. These stories have been arranged chronologically, stretching from the dawn of high school to somewhere near the present-day. Follow along as the Cavaliers grow up - at least a little. In this book, we'll commit academic fraud, serve up tainted baked goods, and attempt to set of a 'harmless little' bomb in class
More Nuggets from the Southside Cavaliers
In this installment, join the Southside Cavaliers as we unleash the Stink, nearly poison John, and challenge the dreaded Ten O'Clock Rule!

The Rising Wind
No ship dares tread the heart of the Mennaidran Sea, yet along her voyage a strange fog suddenly sets the Rising Wind adrift in those haunted waters.
