Author Biography

A back-to-nature heart buoyed Lewis G. Gazoul in crafting this ongoing adventure saga that has already captivated the imaginations and hearts of many. Gazoul has always enjoyed the wilderness. He and his family and friends have hikes, hunted and camped throughout the United States and especially all over the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of the great state of Michigan.

The astonishing wonders of the outdoors became the context for a short bedtime story he whispered to his two children. Later, Lewis wrote that adventure episode onto a piece of paper, and from that page grew his vision for the vast, mystical and wondrous land that is the setting for his first two novels, Druids of the Faerie 1 & 2.

The still evolving land and story remains true to the tale that enchanted his children, allowing their imaginations to flourish, showing the power behind faith in camaraderie and friendships, loyalty and integrity when reading about his faithful champions.

Druids of the Faerie starts off a bit slowly, but develops into a wonderful story of princes and druids, battles and honor. Lewis G. Gazoul tells the story of Baytel, a prince who does not agree with the way his father, the king, is running his kingdom. The king is evil, and the prince's twin brother is becoming even more evil. Prince Baytel cannot understand why he is so different until he escapes the kingdom and finds out who he truly is. Once he discovers why he does not follow his father's evil ways, he must find a way to stop the king before all is lost. His father is out to wage war because his evil greed is insatiable and he doesn't care how many lives he destroys as long as he rules all. Prince Baytel must help save the One Land and the innocent before his father and brother destroy everything.

Lewis G. Gazoul brings life to his characters in Druids of the Faerie. It's not only a war between good and evil, but also father and son, brother and brother. This has all the key ingredients for a fantastic fairy tale, trolls, goblins, demons, druids, faerie, humans, and magic. There is even a bit of romance and mystery. Della, who is in love with Prince Baytel, has to run away from the kingdom, on the advice of the mysterious Harlequin, to escape certain death when the king wages his war. I would recommend Druids of the Faerie to anyone who loves a good fantasy story.
