Retired Air Force Colonel and Senior Federal Agent Launches New Action Adventure Fiction We have all heard of tales of UFO's, ghosts, people who say they can talk to the spirits, ancient curses, and magical talismans. Most of us automatically dismiss them as false, figments of people's imagination, and understandably so. However, might not just a few of them be true? I don't know, but I heard this story from a young man the other day who swore the fascinating tale I have set forth in this book really did really occur, because it happened to him. You be the judge. Fourteen year old Greg Worling's life changed the day he found an eight sided coin along the edge of a pond on his parent's farm. The coin sparkled as though it reflected the sun's light even in the shade. Drawn to it, Greg discovers an inscription on the coin that read, "Greg, drop this coin into the fountain in front of the tree of life." Weeks later, his little sister by his side, Greg tosses the coin into the small fountain and is instantaneously transported to a strange land. Bob Doerr is an accomplished and award winning author: ...o - Well known for his Jim West series of mystery thriller titles. ...o - Finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for books in 2010 and 2011 ...o - Awarded Silver Medal for Fiction/Mystery by the Military Writers Society of America in 2011 The Enchanted Coin is a Mouse Gate Fiction Action Adventure and captivates the attention of children and adults alike.
