Author Biography

I am a native Californian currently living in Southern California with my wife of fifty years. I retired in 2008 from a 39 year career in the printing industry which included production, sales and management. During that time I wrote magazine articles and advertising copy but had never attempted a novel length work.

I began writing my first novel, Wizard of Wisdom, at the age of sixty-three and wrote Books Two and Three — Princess of Wisdom and Children of Wisdom — while searching for an agent and/or publisher for Book One. Double Dragon e-books accepted the entire series for publication in late 2010.

The Wisdom Chronicles series in order:
• Wizard of Wisdom (6/2011)
• Princess of Wisdom (2/2012)
• Children of Wisdom (6/2012)
• Kingdom of Wisdom (3/2013)
• Heirs of Wisdom (1/2015)
• Gods of Wisdom (2/2016)

Book Seven, "Origin of Wisdom—A Prequel", on which I am currently working, will complete the series.

Reviewed by Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite

Many years have passed since the great battle during which Wil has remained in the Old Forest with his daughter Aimee as a companion. In Children of Wisdom, Book 3 of the Wisdom Chronicles by Walter C. Conner, it is time for Aimee to see what the rest of the world has to offer in order to best decide where and how to live her life. What starts out as no more than a pleasure trip, though, quickly turns into a quest because the forces of Styxis are stirring up trouble once again. The three Children of Caron, who are each unaware of the others, are on a collision course and it is once again up to the Wizard, Wil, and Caron, the elf-witch, to subdue the evil. Opening a portal to the underworld, Wil brings the conflict with Styxis to a new confrontation. The hope is that the combination of worldly leaders, their children, and friends can contain the evil before it seeps back into the realm of the living and destroys any hope for the future. How will everyone react when identities are revealed and secrets are uncovered?

Great characters and a wonderful look at the traits that coexist in each of us. Tremendous depth of experience and psychological insight are evident as Walter C. Conner completes his tale of the Wisdom Chronicles. Children of Wisdom takes you to the next generation who will be responsible for restoring and maintaining balance between the mortal realm and the underworld. Fast-paced action, strong characters, and plenty of intrigue keep the pages turning. Some slightly erotic content may make this unsuitable for younger readers, but the story fills out the intensity of emotion that drives some of the characters, making them completely real. The best part is that there is more to follow!
