Sheriff Jedediah Spade’s Catalog of Netherworld Monstrosities

This novel took me over 30 years to write.

It all began with an idea I had when I was 14 years old - what if maps and globes were lies? What if there was more to the world than we are told? What if there are whole areas of the Earth that are kept "secret" and "hidden" for a variety of reasons?

About 2 or 3 years before starting this book, I had another idea. Growing up as a Dungeons & Dragons geek, I thought, "Who writes the monster books? Who finds out all the statistics and descriptions of the monsters?"

What if there was a sheriff in the Old West, who encountered all kinds of monsters on the frontier, and he started writing a catalog of all the creatures he had to dispatch?

Combining those ideas together, about years ago, in October of 2018, I started to write my first children's novel, Sheriff Jedediah Spade’s Catalog of Netherworld Monstrosities.

I also did all the graphic design work in creating the book cover; I did all the programming for the website, and wrote all the XHTML code for the ebook, plus I did all the layout and formatting for the hardcover and softcover editions.
