Theo 1 Cover

On his eighth birthday, Theophilus Messenger began a dangerous new life in another world that no human child had ever seen.

Now, it’s up to him to convince his friends that Terraparable and all of the fantastic, intelligent creatures on its six continents are real ... AND locked in a countdown to their destruction.

If Theo fails to complete his five trials in time, The LINK to Terraparable, and the land itself, will be lost forever.

Theo is a truly gifted child. However, becoming the hero of two worlds is a lot to expect from any fourth grader.

Theophilus Messenger and The L.I.N.K. to Terraparable

is the first book in a series of seven fantasy novels written for middle-grade readers. Each story in the series is not only fantastical, but also Biblically allegorical at it's core. A downloadable "key to the allegory" reveals The Secrets of the Series (the doctrinal truths hidden within each book).

"A delightful fantasy book I thoroughly enjoyed. It was well described and I am looking forward to the next book."

Sarah - Age 12 - North Carolina


"I enjoy each visit to Terraparable. The imagery of the creatures and scenery are great. I wish you could go into more detail about other creatures like the groundlings and the obnoxes (in future books) ... I love the floatus creature the best. Theo is a hero who isn't reluctant or chicken or whiny. He's someone you can believe in."
