Introducing Brae Wyckoff
A few questions if you would be so kind...

Think about the past week... Tell us about your week as a type of landscape or a weather forecast. 
Winds are gusting this week so make sure you stay away from those sheer cliffs overlooking the beautiful coast of San Diego unless you’re wearing protection like a hang glider. Expect sunny beach weather days as The Orb, I mean the sun, will be bright and you will need to protect yourself with 60-proof sun tan lotion while basking on the white sand and frolicking in the waves.

List five adjectives to describe yourself.
1. Amazing
2. Outgoing
3. Hasty
4. Fiery
5. Punctual

You have multiple personalities, tell us about them.
“Where do I start?” “With me you idiot!” “Definitely not with you, you Jedi lover.” “What do you have against Jedi, storyteller?” “You have been a bad girl, now go to my bedroom.” “What?” “Who?” “Not you.” “Me?” “Hell no.” “Fine, I’ll do it, again.” “That’s better.”

What punctuation mark best describes your personality? Why?
A comma would best describe me because I am always doing multiple things. Husband, Father, Grandpa, Writing books, short stories, marketing, running LR Publishing, building websites, blogging, ebaying, housework, running an international ministry, officiating weddings, critiquing others written works, editing, book cover, 6 facebook pages, google, goodreads, and 4 different email accounts. I’m sure I missed something…

If you were to name one piece of clothing that describes you, what would it be?
My Star Wars T-shirt that says, “The Force is strong in this one.” My all-time favorite and it captures the essence of who I am.

Describe your favorite pair of PJ's.
My Scooby-Do pant bottoms are my favorite. They are soft, light, and baggie. I’m in them right now actually.

Tell us about your dream wedding if money is not an issue.
Fly all family and friends to stay at Sofitell Resort on Moorea (Tahitian Island). Paul McCartney singing. Vera Wang designed wedding gown and I’m wearing Armani suit barefoot. 10-carat diamond ring for my bride. Lobster dinner on the beach, all you can eat seafood buffet with every imaginable dessert. I would enter on a hovercraft, land on the beach like James Bond. My wife would be carried in on a custom made carriage fit for a queen as in days of old by tan Tahitians. Jesus is officiating and He is bringing the WINE!

Describe your ideal romantic date.
See above, but without the friends and the relatives…and Jesus needs to turn the other way. (Jesus has to be there in order to get the wine and endless fish)

If you had to describe your life using three words, it would be…
1. Destiny
2. Relationships
3. Love


In the hundreds of years since the Holy City disappeared, darkness has fallen over the land. Human kingdoms have seized control of the realm, scattering the other races into hiding.

Bridazak, a skilled thief, and his friends, a Dwarf and a fellow Ordakian, have dared to remain within the human communities and live relatively quiet lives, until they discover a mysterious, magical artifact. The three friends are thrust into an adventure that will challenge their faith, their purpose, and their destiny as they chase a forgotten and lost prophecy across the realm of Ruauck-El, where they hope to discover the origins of the strange item and their place in its history.

An ancient, unknown enemy threatens the completion of their journey at every turn. Bridazak is about to face the biggest adventure of his life, one that may change the known realm, and answer the questions he has carried all his life. Will they unlock the truth?


Wow, what an amazing book turned fantasy world!  I enjoyed taking the journey along with Bridazak, Spilf, Dulgin, Abawken, Xan, Lester and Ross.  My imagination was inspired, my beliefs touched, my world turned fantasy with every turn of the pages.

When Ordakians, dwarlves, elves and humans take direction from pixies and hear the voice of truth, a prophecy binds them together.  With the magic of a bow, the strength of an axe, the elements of a sword barrier fight together, evil can be conquered and destroyed.  While faced with water trolls and mindless Orcs nothing can stop Bridazak and his friends as they fight together.

Everyone says this book is a cross between Lord of the Rings and Wizard of Oz...  I cannot say I've read these books although I have seen the movies.  There are similarities but the differences are what make The Orb of Truth a fantasy world like no other.  I cannot wait to see what happens next in The Dragon God.
