the power of a simple choice.
Kialessa is different. She has horns. She has a tail. She doesn’t burn. With all this difference how will she find a way to fit in a world that doesn’t seem to want her?
On the other hand, perhaps being different is just what the world desperately needs?
The book is already receiving great feedback from its young readers. Karlie, a young fan of fantasy and superheroes stories, called it “just as good as Harry Potter.” Emily, an avid reader said, “it was un-put-downable.”
The Tae’anaryn is intended to be a ‘thinking’ book that discusses challenging issues children face daily, set at the safe distance of a fantasy setting.
“This book is not only entertaining, it is helpful,” says Dr Joe. “How do you deal with the challenges of facing a new school, especially if you looked or believed very differently from everyone else there? How do you find the purpose of your life in particular? How can you promote the changes in your life that you need? This book deals with these kinds of big questions so often brushed over in our busy lives, but we can learn a lot from fantasy literature, and have a great time doing it!”
Dr Joe has a lifelong passion for philosophy, science, and fantasy, having written academic papers for the international journal of science education as well as award winning fantasy for the Dungeons & Dragons Living Greyhawk fantasy campaign setting. Dr Joe lives in Brisbane with his wife and three daughters.

Glowing Buzzwords review: http://www.buzzwordsmagazine.com/2013/05/the-tanaryn.html
"I took your book home and read it and I think it is fabulous. In the beginning it looked like a regular young person's story about school bullies and then the story really took off when the space ship took off. I love the creatures and worlds you created. I think you have managed to combine the science into it in a really good way. It does not slow the story down but adds an extra dimension to the story for those that want it. I think it would make an exciting movie too."
