About this title


Twelve-year-old Ilien Woodhill is having a rough week. 

His enchanted pencil won't stop mouthing off to the biggest bully in town, he discovers he might be Satan reborn, and the eyes he accidentally conjured up refuse to leave him alone. 

Oh, and he might have been born a girl. 

He's not sure which bothers him most, but he is dead sure of one thing. Saving the world won't be easy! 

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:

I hope you've enjoyed readingNomadin: Book One. Yes! The tale continues. Click the link to download BookTwo: NiDemon and BookThree: Necromancer.
Though I wrote Nomadin fromstart to finish in exactly thirteen months, the tale itself was over sixteenyears 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 familybusiness, I managed to eke it out one word at a time, writing at night when thehouse was still and all my other obligations were "responsibly"handled. This will come as no surprise to anyone who aspires to write a book. Awriter is compelled to write. I am compelled to write this tale, that's all.And a responsible writer will write when he or she can. What does surprise awriter is knowing that someone actually took the time to read their book.
