My real life experiences as an emergency room physician has had friends and family for decades asking: tell us about the latest craziness you’ve seen. So I’ve been a story teller for over 40 years now. But with all the new patient privacy laws, the stories I’ve written about unusual patients will likely never make it to print.
So I started creating fictional stories, when I wasn’t treating patients or tackling another DIY house project. This story of Ignatius came together during the pandemic as I needed an escape from what I was seeing in the ER. I had earlier begun a story about a high school student stuck in a fantasy world without all of today’s tools and technology to help him. I weaved in some fantasy creatures I conceived as well as some folklore creatures along with the adventure plot, and the first book of the Ignatius series came to fruition. I hope you too enjoy some time relaxing and escaping from your daily commitments as you join Iggy on his first adventure.
