Wayne Grant grew up in a tiny cotton town in rural Louisiana where hunting, fishing and farming were a way of life. Between chopping cotton, dove hunting and Little League ball he developed a love of great adventure stories like Call It Courage and Kidnapped.

Like most southern boys of that era he saw the military as an honorable and adventurous career. Every living male member of his family had served in the Army covering World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam, so it was a natural step for him to attend and graduate from West Point. He just missed Vietnam, but found that life as a Captain in an army broken by that war was not what he wanted.

After tours in Germany and Korea, he returned to Louisiana and civilian life where he began a 10 yea

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the kind words about the Roland Inness Saga! Any comparison to the Saxon series (one of my all-time favorites) is humbling.

I am currently a bit over half done with book 3 in the series and have realized that I won't be able to finish the story in my head in 3 books. So the basic series arc will now be four books, at which point I hope readers are happy with how the whole thing ends.

I have another historical fiction story that has been nagging at me to do after Roland, but I will say, that there is a lot of interesting history between the end of Book 4 and Magna Carta that could supply inspiration for more Roland books.

Thanks again for the support!(less)
Wayne Grant Well, I am a bit biased in favor of my young protagonists, Roland Inness and Millicent de Laval from The Saga of Roland Inness--for obvious reasons.…moreWell, I am a bit biased in favor of my young protagonists, Roland Inness and Millicent de Laval from The Saga of Roland Inness--for obvious reasons. Beyond my own creations, though I would probably surprise my wife by voting for Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. (less)

OK–This one is a little different than my previous reviews.  I read this book by Jean Craighead George in about the 4th Grade and the images from this story have stuck with me for fifty years.  The protagonist here is not a boy, but a young male great horned owl who is seeking a new territory and ultimately a mate.  What I still find magical about this book is how George brings the characters o...

Highly recommend this book. The author who has for many years pointed out the dangers of identity politics on the left now finds the right to be equally as dangerous. A sobering view of the direction we are heading. We need to reverse course!
