Enhancing children’s writing skills is something author Joe H. Sherman encourages in his household, thus how he began writing his first novel, “The Bloodline Chronicles Vol. I.”
Sherman’s novel formed when he began augmenting his son’s writing skills and eventually an intriguing storyline captured his attention. This fast-paced, adventurous novel exceeds a balance between humor, tragedy and violence, set in a pseudo-medieval fantasy world.
“I was originally working with my son practicing writing, to increase his skills,” Sherman said. “This is where the setting of a medieval realm, sword-and-sorcery fantasy, was created, to spark his interest.”
“The Bloodline Chronicles Vol. I” focuses on a cathartic journey of two medieval, inhuman brothers and their quest for a solid foundation in society. Humorous situations emerge throughout the novel and their pursuit for society acceptance underlines the deeper meaning of the storyline.
“One of the most dominant themes in this series is the search or desire to find a place to fit in to society,” Sherman said. “There is an underlying conflict between the classes throughout the series.”
