John H. Schmitz, a devoted father, has completed his new book “The Executioner’s Son”: a gripping story of a young man’s journey into knighthood that is an exciting and powerful adventure story with a strong moral theme.

The writing of this book is actually a byproduct of the incredible labor of love that is fatherhood. Schmitz originally began penning the tale as a way to inspire his son to expound upon a short story he had written. Instead, it was the senior member of the creative duo that finished Jack’s story. Schmitz admits, “There would be no book if not for my son’s imagination and penchant for writing.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John H. Schmitz’s enthralling tale introduces Jon as the recently orphaned son of his kingdom’s executioner. His youthful age harnesses him with the unfortunate requirement to take on the tasks and truths that adults see fit without his own interjection.

While on a job with a knight who seeks to divulge the truth behind the sudden death of the king, Jon is saddled with a terrible secret and becomes an unwilling part of a conspiracy that uses the fear of dragons as a means of control.

In this coming of age story, the basic tenets of Christianity are explored as well as the more complicated questions all under a thrilling mask of adventure and action.

Readers who wish to experience this enthralling work can purchase“The Executioner’s Son” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
