About the Author
Geoffrey Gardner is the author of The Wielder, and the second book in the Kindred Stars series: The Return of the Naja, that has yet to be released. He credits his imagination to spending his childhood in London, England before moving to the U.S. The medieval castles, gothic cathedrals and English countryside was a perfect setting for a young boy dreaming of becoming a Knight, Robin Hood, or even a Lost Boy. He has always loved to write stories, dabbling in screenplays in the past but only as a hobby. Living in California now, he is an avid sailor, and enjoys acting like a pirate. He gives credit to writing The Wielder to his beloved dog Sherman. If it wasn’t for the loyal companion so excited to see him when he came home from work and knocking him over, his ankle wouldn’t have been broken and the book would have never been written.
