Author Biography

I am a native Californian currently living in Southern California with my wife of forty-nine 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. I 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.

Book Four, Kingdom of Wisdom was released March 26, 2013, while Book Five, Heirs Of Wisdom (originally titled Loss of Wisdom until the characters hijacked the story and forced the change) debuted in January, 2015, and Book Six, Gods of Wisdom, was released in February, 2016.

As of this writing, I intend that Book Seven, Origin of Wisdom—A Prequel , will complete the series.

There couldn’t be a better opening for the Wisdom Chronicles series than Wizard of Wisdom by Walter C. Conner, a work of brilliance and high class entertainment, a powerful promise for a very enjoyable read. From the impressive cast of characters to the dazzling plot and the charm of the writing, Walter C. Conner establishes himself as a master storyteller. A magical, enchanting, and heart stopping tale of the struggle between good and evil, of magic, and what happens when one man gets greedy and wants to use it for personal ends.

Set against the backdrop of an idyllic place called Wisdom, a place nestled at the edge of the old Forest, and a place once occupied by the elves, this magical tale offers readers one of the age-old conflicts: the struggle between good and evil. On the one hand, there is the greedy and self-appointed wizard, Greyleige, who wants all the magic of the elves in order to control the entire world. On the other hand is a team of simple-hearted people like the swineherd, Wil, Princess Caron (the unwavering warrior), and Scrubby.

The author immediately draws readers into the story with the powerful, descriptive opening lines. But it’s just the beginning and the author doesn’t give readers a moment’s respite from the powerful spell of his beautiful prose, embellished with flawless and plot-driven dialogue. Wizard of Wisdom might be the kind of tale written for young adults, but like the Harry Potter series, it will become the next phenomenon that will enthrall adult readers. There is a lot to keep readers entertained and rapt in the pages of the book. Walter C. Conner is a master entertainer with a unique voice, a unique gift for plot, and an imagination that will carry readers far, far away from their world and reality.
