"Children need to read about ‘heroic legends.’”

JRR Tolkien, author of The Hobbits and Lord of the Rings

Exciting Updates from Write with Your Kids!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Dragon and Dinosaur Chronicles series. Please sign up for our newsletters in FREEBIES to stay up-to-date on progress with our family’s books for elementary and middle school readers plus Write with Your Kids initiatives.

Our “fantasy adventures with a heart” begin with Star Life Keepers

  • Combination of the spirituality of Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia and the epic scope of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings

  • Mash-up of dragons, dinosaurs; videogame hybrids, and the King Arthur medieval era

  • Brandon Sanderson’s illustration strategy for Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians

  • Subplot tied to Gavin Menzies’ 1421: The Year China Discovered America

Based on my experience with military history books, I’ve also created detailed maps so midgrade readers can follow the quests of our protagonists—Jason, Amanda, and Elisa—who must collaborate with their human, elf, and dragon friends to stop an invasion of dinosaurs and hybrids.

In BUILD YOUR FANTASY WORLD, I’m sharing “before & after” examples from our Dragon & Dinosaur Chronicles work. Here’s an example:
