Richard Spencer (writing as Richard S. Thomas) is no spring chicken. When he was born, Harry S. Truman was president. When macular degeneration closed the door to 50 years of fine woodworking, it opened the door to a decades-old dream of writing. His first book, Earther Wizard, the Rise of Colin Duncan, was published in June of 2023. He currently resides in Hesperia, CA with his wife. They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
Earther Wizard, the Rise of Colin Duncan
What if I told you a parallel planet occupies the same space as the Earth? A planet filled with dragons, wyvern, wood nymphs, wizards, and . . . Magic.
Colin Duncan is a 27-year-old former Marine with no prior knowledge of this place. He is introduced to magic when a wizard steps into his bedroom through a portal in the middle of the night, intent on killing him.
In a running battle across two continents, Colin must decipher a series of mysterious images in his mind. All while being pursued by wizards—who see him as a threat to their power—and the fearsome, shapeshifting, sentient, creatures who assist them. Colin's only ally is Willowmae, a resourceful wood nymph full of surprises.
To survive, Colin must beat his adversaries at their own game, on their own turf. To do that, he must become the most powerful wizard on two worlds.
He must become the Earther Wizard in a journey filled with discovery, betrayal, friendship, and no small amount of pain.
