From the Author JR King
I've always loved reading. My favorite books are filled with humor,
action, and adventure. I've been writing stories and reading them to
friends and in school for as long as I can remember. When I was in the
fourth grade I started writing even more stories, and my teacher
encouraged me to write a book. I started several books, but it wasnít
until I started writing "Arianna Kelt and the Wizards of Skyhall" that I
really put my heart into it. "Arianna Kelt and the Wizards of Skyhall"
is the first book in the Wizards of Skyhall trilogy.
I finished writing the book when I was twelve. My sixth-grade teacher
encouraged me to try to get it published. I tried and tried and in six
months time I had several interested publishers, but the problem was
they didnít know I was a kid. When I got another letter from a local
publisher, I decided to tell them I was only twelve. They were so nice
that thatís the publisher I decided to have as my publisher. The
publisher worked with me for over a year on the book.
My whole point in writing "Arianna Kelt and the Wizards of Skyhall" was
to create the kind of book that I loved reading. I wanted it to be a
really good book, and I worked very hard to make sure it had everything
I think makes a good book. I hope when you read it you think itís cool.
If Iíve succeeded, I hope youíll spread the word. Tell your friends.
My favorite part of the book is how the wizards protect the people of
earth from all the bad things, and how the wizards can step through
portals to travel to other worlds and dimensions. I like how Arianna was
a bad kid who becomes a force for good. As I wrote about Arianna, Meilan,
Ranth, and all the rest, they became like good friends. The growing
friendship between Arianna, Meilan, and Ranth is strong and an important
part of the story.
I hope you like the wizarding universe I created. I tried to make it as
real and complex as our own with strange new worlds and places to visit
around every corner. - J. R. King
