Though few in the medieval kingdom of Wilkinshire have seen the legendary dragon known as Bogotah, many fear him. Stories passed down for generations tell of his capability to breathe fire, spread deadly disease, and consume livestock and people to appease his insatiable appetite. Even so, Bogotah upholds his duty to guard the kingdom and his treasured secret. After the assassination of their lord, the residents of Wilkinshire line the muddy street to meet their new rulers. Appointed to reconstruct the battered kingdom, Lord Philip and his wife, Lady Rachelle, are in disbelief at the magnitude of their undertaking as poverty-stricken citizens greet them with rotted teeth, filthy clothing, and pathetic living conditions. As the lord and lady settle into their new residence, Lord Philip is confronted with the peasants' belief that Bogotah is to blame for Wilkinshire's misfortunes. In order to put the citizen's superstitions to rest, he must discover who is responsible for the kingdom's bad luck. Meanwhile, Lord Thaddeus of Lancaster, an evil soul consumed by greed, waits for the opportune moment to claim Wilkinshire for himself. Spurred on by a voracious desire to obtain the legendary Treasure of Wilkinshire, he will stop at nothing to obtain it. Only time will reveal the fate of the kingdom and of the spectacular treasure hidden somewhere within its walls.

This book is about my various jobs from the young age of nine to sixty-four years old. The most important point is not how many jobs I have had, but how I got my jobs. Although I have had many jobs, I was never without work. One job seemed to flow into the next employment opportunity. The most amazing thing about all of my jobs is that I never filled out an application and had very few official interviews. I believe the Lord took me from one job to the other for over 55 years and He continues to guide me. And now my wish for each of my readers: May the Lord bless you and keep you and may His face shine upon you and bring you peace. Happy Reading!
