Q.1 when did you decide you were going to write a book?

A. My educational company The Medieval Dude works with schools to provide educational experiences that engage the person or learner with replicas and artifacts from the medieval era.

The story answers a question I get often when I visit schools: were dragon real? 

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 

A. The story answers a question I get asked often when I visit schools: were dragon real? I thought this question would a perfect question to answer in a children’s book. The name comes from the main character Alfred. He has an experience that with what he believes is a dragon. 

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 2018?

A. I am working on promoting Alfred’s Dragon. I also have three other stories in development using the same family in Alfred’s Dragon. 

Q 4. how long have you been writing?

A. I did a lot of writing for my degrees, but this is my first book. 

Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A. Keep it up until you are satisfied with the product you are creating. 

Q 6.  we're can people find you online?

A. People can find me online at www.medievaldude.com, on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMedievalDude/, and by email at dennis@medievaldude.com 

Q7 do you plan on making more books in the future 

A. Yes, that is my plan. I am in the process of writing three more books. One on castles, one on tournaments, and one on the medieval garden. 

Q 8 how many books have you written 

A. I have written one so far. 

Q 9 did you go to college to be a writer

A. The first book ‘Shreya’s Eighth’ was easy as it is about Shreya’s 8th birthday...but to leave the children guessing decided to skip the word ‘birthday’ from it. Similarly, the second is named Samira’s SIT venture which is about the SIT- the Stay Indoor Tournament. The book is set during the rainy season so the name seemed appropriate. The third is ‘The Three on a spree’. This was a tough one...as about planning for a vacation. Then realized shopping before a vacation is all that children think of so that the pictures come out great! 😊 The fourth book ‘The Braces Club’ is about a Braces club so...😊

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I am currently working on two projects. The first is the next in the series after Lonesome Wolf. I'm loving the character more than I thought possible! The second is a western in the style of Louis L'Amour. It is interesting to me because I usually run to romances.
Q 4. how long have you been writing?
