For thousands of years, the secrets of the powers of the Dark and the Light have remained hidden. The secrets were recorded into two books, and hidden away with powerful immortal guards to protect them.
On the surface, all seemed at peace in the present kingdom of Archomai(ar'-khom-ahee), until the great witch Farmakia, accidentally opened a portal into the spirit world and was accosted by an over powering voice, "Who dares to intrude into my blackness?" She had awoken the dread dark warlock, Aphthartos.By doing so she set in motion things that would bring the kingdom near to its death.
The books must be found; however, finding them may be the easy part. Retrieving them may cost one his life, even many lives.
Nevertheless,within their pages are the secrets of the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness. The present dark forces seek the dark book to unleash the full forces of the Dark World. The present forces of light will seek the book of Light to find the keys to unlock the secrets to break the curse over the kingdom of Archomai, and unleash the power to drive the Dark World back.
Our band of heroes must struggle against the armies of Draytalon. At the same time,unravel the mysteries that lay before them. A simple, cowardly, and timid Muse-man may hold the key to the power of Light.
The blue eyed, blond-haired beauty by the name of Selene handles a sword like a master,and her fighting ability is next to none. She and Bordare find the witch creating a Muwt army. She too knows more, but will she share her information?
Into this mix comes the hero from our world, Jeremiah, a young man who desires to be free. He becomes a true warrior in the kingdom of Archomai, and brings with him a humble spirit that wins over all who he comes in contact with. His willingness to sacrifice himself to save other begins to create a legend that he will live up to time and time again.
The great witch, Farmakia, has teamed up with Lord Poneros of Draytalon to conquer by force, the kingdom of Archomai. They do not trust each other; even so, they serve the dreaded Lord of the Dark World who is chained within his castle Blackleir and cast into another time. Only the witch has the power to make contact with him, and the imprisoned Aphthartos, the Dark Warlock. The witch and Lord Poneros have at their disposal many hideous and deadly vicious creatures to accomplish their desires.
War comes to the land of the fairies, and to the land of the dwarves. The aged king of Archomai must send his armies out to defend the loyal sub-kingdoms. Will all the sub-kingdom fight? Even so, who will lead his army? His arrogant son, the prince?

The beginning of the book Archomai, (pronounced, ar'-khom-ahee) was totally uncertain. I had always wanted to write, but never could find the time or the self-confidence to do it. Although I never read any of the Lord of The Rings books, I absolutely loved the movies, and I worked out in my mind a way to continue them with three more movies. I still have that outline for it, but the chances of me running into one of the Tolkien family was slim at best and convincing them I could write more books for the series was probably not going to happen. Then one of my family members said, "Write your own story," and that is how it all got started.
At the time, I started to write Archomai, I had a self-published book of poetry, The Old Corner Post, and was just getting started learning about writing and publishing. I set out to tell a fantastic story, one filled with hidden treasures, mysteries, and spiritual truths. My main character, Jeremiah came from a young man whom my daughter worked with in grade school. She was trained to help physically challenged individuals. This young man was bound to a wheel chair and could not talk or move very well if at all. My heart went out to him, and I could see a real need to encourage this young man and others like him. So Jeremiah starts out in a wheel chair, and once he enters the kingdom of Archomai, he can do all things, including talking. He becomes a great warrior and a great hero. And he does this with compassion and self-sacrifice. Like the young man from my daughter's school, Jeremiah, touches the heart of all that he comes in contact with and leaves them for the better.
As I was writing Archomai, The story began to tell me what to write. I still am amazed at the characters that just came to me and became alive in the story. The events, the happenings, and various themes just exploded, and I found myself unable to keep up. Archomai is written in simple language and is very easy to read. If you are looking for bad language or sex scenes, you will not find them in Archomai. You will find the clash between good and evil, and armies of light battling the armies of dark. I believe the moral lessons that are in the story are much-needed today. These lessons are not forced upon the reader. However, they are there for the taking. A grandparent could read this story to their ten-year-old grandchild with absolute confidence and no surprises. Although the writing is easy to read, the mysteries are very complicated. An adult will have something to chew on, but it may slip by a child. My goal is to create a special place for the reader to escape to. Where dreams can be fulfilled and for a time the cares of the world can be laid aside. As with Jeremiah, our hero, we must always come home, but we can be the better from our journey. I believe deep within my heart that Archomai is a very special story and one that should be read. Not because I wrote it, but for the moral lessons, it teaches and the pure friendship that it offers. It truly was a blessing to write.
I have poured my heart and soul into this book, and I will pour my heart and soul into the next two to finish the Archomai trilogy.
