About this title


Ilien Woodhill has lived the sheltered life of a normal boy from a small nowhere town. His biggest worry is the pair of bullies who wage a relentless battle to break his spirit. All that changes when the old wizard, Gallund, comes to stay at the house. Ilien's wise-cracking, enchanted pencil may get him A's in math, but it's little consolation for the extra beatings from Stan and Peaty. 

For now, Ilien is perfectly content conjuring fang-filled jaws and sword-wielding arms for his own amusement, but he'll soon learn more than Gallund will teach him. A shadow touches his peaceful land of Nadae. An ancient evil is stirring. A NiDemon has crossed from the Land of the Dead. It has stolen the book that holds the Necromancer's imprisoned soul, and it seeks the Prophesied child who can open it. Now Ilien must run - from a monster of unimaginable cunning and power toward a fate far more frightening than that which hunts him. But he cannot run forever. Eventually he will have to make a stand. Soon or later he will have to face what the legendary Nomadin fear most . . . himself.

From the Author:

Though I wrote Nomadin from start to finish in exactly thirteen months, the tale itself was over sixteen years in the making. I began writing about Ilien and his adventure in 1987, during my sophomore year of college. Through many fits and starts, marriage, two children, buying my first house, becoming firmly entrenched in a family business, I managed to eke it out one word at a time, writing at night when the house was still and all my other obligations were "responsibly" handled. This will come as no surprise to anyone who aspires to write a book. A writer is compelled to write. I was compelled to write this tale, that's all. And a responsible writer will write when he or she can. What does surprise a writer is knowing that someone actually took the time to read their book. So Thank You for finding and, fingers crossed, reading Nomadin: Book One. And Thank You in advance for leaving your review here at Amazon.
