J. R. Sechler is an independent author and started reading fantasy stories shortly after he learned to read. The places those stories took him in his mind have stayed with him all these years and he always had his own visions and stories playing inside his head, just begging to break free. He finally decided to take to paper and write out those thoughts and characters and turn them into something tangible to share with the world. He gets his inspiration from all kinds of places: newspaper articles, magazines, people on the street, random things his wife or children say, something the neighbor's dog digs up, animals in the park, etc. Ideas come in all shapes and sizes and often from the most unexpected places. When not writing, J. R. Sechler enjoys reading, playing golf, soccer, skiing, hiking, spending time with his family, building things, and a plethora of other activities. A jack of all trades, master of few. The Amulet of Power series is his first collection of fantasy novels. Be sure to stay on the look out for many more to come in the future.
