I would create an open-ended adventure that young students could picture themselves being a part of.

“Why don’t you read more books?” is a question we have probably all been asked at one time or another. While most folks would respond with a comment about their lack of time or desire to focus on other hobbies, author T.J. Lemmer had a very different reason.

Lemmer’s wife asked him about his lack of interest in reading, so he simply responded “I already have enough stories in my head to last me a lifetime.” This statement prompted a challenge from his wife to write one such story down, so it could be shared with the world.

So, Lemmer has turned his ever-active imagination into a new fantasy-adventure novel, “The Wizard and the Quient.” The story follows fifteen-year old Thomas Wisby as he is transported into a world of wizards, dinosaurs and much more.

While the book is geared towards grade-school students, Lemmer has written in an adult enough fashion for parents to enjoy diving in with their kids. “The Wizard and the Quient” is the first installment in a series that will see Wisby get into a number of different adventures as he grows up.

“I’ve always found myself creating my own versions of movies and books when I hear the storyline,” Lemmer said. “I thought I would create an open-ended adventure that young students could picture themselves being a part of.”
