Upon looking at Julien you would believe he was a big goofy guy who lived in the woods; but after meeting him you realize that he is actually quite special. Julien is an Empyrean wizard in Azra’s Pith. What does that mean? Well, being a wizard, of course he can do magic. He is well over one hundred fifty years old and very wise. There is one extraordinary quality that separates him from your average, everyday wizard. Julien is part owl… don’t blink because he may sprout feathers and fly away.
Interview with Julien
What is your favorite meal?
There is nothing better than a stew made with the vegetables from my garden. A little magic in the dirt gives the Vegetables a unique flavor.
If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?
I would apologize to Sarah for not finding her on the mountain before Imperius got to her and drained the curse. It still upsets me.
On a lighter note, I would give my sincere apologies to my old friend, Ferdinand. Years ago I dropped him in midflight right into the river; poor little hopper. Of course, I will hear about it for the next hundred years.
Who should play you in a film?
John Rhys Davies – There is a strikingly similar boisterous quality about him. He can also grow a fantastic beard.
What would we find under your bed?
Perhaps some sticks, and dirt (just a little). A tiny snack… incase I get hungry. Oops – and some worn cloaks. My, my… I need to tidy up a bit.
Tell us about your favorite restaurant.
There is a quaint restaurant on the riverbank in Mundi’s Village. The singing is jovial and the bread rolls are always flying. The stew is pretty good – not as good as mine; but I go for the ambiance.
What makes you happy?
I’m a simple wizard so it does not take much… food, flying, friends and laughter. Of course, if we could rid the realm of a certain dark sorcerer I would be absolutely bursting with joy.
If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?
Chirpy bird – in fact, I have been known to chirp with the birds while cooking breakfast. Come to think of it; I am a bird some of the time!
What one word best describes you?
That’s it? Just one word…? I’d say “Jolly”
It all started with a stay at his grandmother’s cottage. Alexander found strange clues tucked away in his father’s old bedroom. With a mysterious key and several maps in his pack he set off on an innocent search for answers about his family.
When he discovered a secret passageway the search took a dramatic turn. He suddenly worried about what was searching for him. Alexander was being hunted by a sorcerer from his father’s past. Answers lead to more questions and the journey of his life.
Join Alexander for a thrilling adventure in Azra’s Pith, a place of beauty and magic… but beware—something evil lurks in the shadows.
With the safety of the realm in jeopardy, General John William Drake was asked to come back to Azra's Pith. He swore he would never return. But after discovering his son was under a spell and in the grips of a dark sorcerer, he had no choice.
Things take a wild turn in the mountains, with runaways, a hungry wolf and a mysterious, young empyrean wizard thrown into the adventure. A tight race against time and evil is in full swing. With faith and a little magic, they just might come out on top.
Over the years I learned that the insecurities I carried around were a waste of time. I still prefer a football game to a manicure any day of the week. That indispensable imagination has found its way into my writing providing a sense of joy and a true purpose.
