Hi, I spent most of my life working as a carpenter and yes, my name IS Ken Plank. After 55 years of cutting up wood and banging in nails I decided to hang up the saw and retire. I started writing to please my Grand daughters who always asked me to 'Tell them a story' Short stories at first then along came 'Fire Opal' with my grand daughter as the main character. Two more books are in the pipeline and I am thoroughly enjoying the invention and pleasure it brings. You're never too old to do something new!
The Opal glowed brightly: Red and Orange colours flowed across it like the hot embers in a fire.
Soon the Opal would control all who owned it and evil would flow through their veins like molten lava.
Lili and her Samurai Sword will have to fight many desperate battles to overcome the evil Drago, King of the Dark Mountains and Morticia the most evil of Witches.
