Author Biography

A former professional comic book writer and current science fiction novelist, Henry naturally took to making up stories for his son. As his son grew older, Henry was invited to share those stories in his son's classroom. Finding his stories were entertaining to people who weren't related to him, Henry decided to take a crack at telling stories professionally. Since 2005, Henry has performed all over his home state of North Carolina and served on the board of the North Carolina Storytelling Guild.

Recently, he branched out into his other great love--science fiction. His first novel, Scout's Honor, was released in April of 2014 and spent six weeks on Amazon's Space Opera best sellers list. Two more books in the Scout series followed, with a fourth waiting in the wings. Henry's most recent novel, The Fugitive Heir, a young adult science fiction adventure, was released on February 1, 2016. Henry is hard at work on sequels to The Fugitive Heir as well as more Scout adventures.

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

Growing up is difficult at the best of times. Children learn by observing those around them. Too often, children believe that they are quite capable of running things themselves and doing things their own way. Young Prince William and the seven brothers known as 'the sillies' had to learn some simple facts of life the hard way. Sharing their stories can help other youngsters learn these same lessons without having to learn them the hard way.

Prince William's parents left him in charge of the kingdom while they went away. The young prince had a very different idea of how things should be done, but in trying to do things his way, he ended up throwing everyone into the dungeon ... only to be left with no one to take care of him. The seven silly brothers wanted to visit the city on their own. They argued with their parents that they could read and count and they would not get lost. Along the way, they learned that perhaps their parents were right to tell them that they were too young to be alone in the big city.

Then there's the story of the King and his three questions, composed to help him choose the right prince to marry his daughter. But what happened was a lesson in dignity and honor and true love, lessons that even the King had to learn all over again.

Henry Vogel's collection of three stories for young readers, I'm In Charge! & Other Stories, is a delightful addition to the educational fairy tales that have taught young readers for generations. These three excellent fairy tales teach young readers valuable lessons about life in a way that both entertains and amuses. Very well done!
