About the Author
Hi I’m T. Arthur Engard and thanks for checking in! I hope you were (or will be) entertained by my writing. I am essentially a storyteller so when a story wakes me up in the middle of the night I write it down.
“The Spoiled Child” took a year to write and illustrate. It was inspired by a small ceramic figurine of Black Peter that I saw in a shop in Lake Arrowhead, California. The more I looked into folktales surrounding Black Peter and his many incarnations, the more the story percolated. The models for the illustrations are all members of my own family and I was the model for both Black Peter and Santa.
“Nevarrah” took many, many years to write. I “completed” it about five years ago and decided that even at 700 pages, there was more to tell. So I set about dividing the book into a trilogy and dug in again. Book one, “Ritual”, has been well received and so I am even more inspired to shape up the other two books and get them on the shelf. The cover of Nevarrah is a photo I took in Alaska (one of several thousand taken during 4 trips), darkened and highlighted in Photoshop with a second photo of a Wizard I sculpted placed in the middle.
I am currently looking for a model for “Aleena” for the cover of book two (“Sisterland”). Book two will come out within a year (knock wood). I don’t like to make my readers wait years for the next installment.
