About this author

DJ Edwardson always wanted to invent the hovercraft. Not some floaty balloon contraption, but the real McCoy, with levitation and jump jets and cool track lights down the side just because. But he found that not being a scientist or an inventor or a multi-billion dollar venture capitalist put a bit of a damper on that career path so he settled for the next best thing, writing about them.

But he doesn't just write about hovercraft. He's invented all sorts of things that will probably never make it out of that "what if" stage, at least not in his lifetime. He also writes about things that aren't "things" at all, like friendship, courage, and love. And those are even more exiting than hovercraft.

Here’s a quote that certainly resonates with me. Too many good books? Not so, says Martin Luther. This is one of the reasons why I feel compelled to take up the pen and write.

Here’s the actual Luther quote on books along with a graphic I put together to display it.

There never yet have been, nor are there now, too many good books.
