Captain Kid Is Looking for a Few Brave Recruits

In the summer of 1990, thirteen-year-old Charles Miller lives in a lake-side townhouse in Florida. He has good friends, reasonable parents, and no school for another two months. Life is good, but when a strange boy glides into the neighborhood on a homemade raft, Charles’s dreams of leisure are shaken awake by the promise of adventure. 

The stranger, introducing himself as “Captain Kid,” claims to be from another dimension. With a winsome personality and infectious enthusiasm, he explains he has come to Charles’s world on an important quest to find a missing princess known as the Patch Fairy. 

This can hardly be believed, but when Charles witnesses too many unexplainable events, he tingles with the understanding that something truly extraordinary is about to happen.

 Captain Kid proposes a rescue mission which involves leaving not only the neighborhood Charles grew up in but the entire plane of reality. Also, the captain speaks of monsters. Charles is interested but he’s not crazy! The mission is too dangerous. However, when his friends eagerly join the quest, Charles is left with an all-important choice: be responsible and stay home or follow Captain Kid up the Reality Deck and into the Attic of the World.

About the Author:  

Growing up with a father in the U.S. Army, Joseph Mazerac traveled extensively. He was born in Germany but quickly moved with his family to the United States where he spent his youth in Alabama, North Carolina, Alaska, Texas, Missouri, Florida, and Georgia.

After graduating high school, Joseph hit the road again, this time to California where he met his wife. While in California, he began his “day job” career as an Unexploded Ordnance Technician. That job sent him to remote locations across the U.S. and around the globe.

When he wasn’t blowing things up, Joseph pursued a less dangerous but equally adventuresome creative life. He is a Royal Palm Literary Award-winning author, graphic novel illustrator, and podcaster—all of this despite his childhood battle with dyslexia! After many years with drawing as his first passion, he has traded the pencil for a keyboard. Now he uses carefully crafted prose to envision cowboys, phantoms, magic swords, and evil unicorns in a multi-layered reality overflowing with rich imagination.

Joseph is a husband, and father to four who prides himself in his family. He is also a dedicated person of faith and does not shy away from writing about faith as a normal part of the human experience. He cherishes time with friends and loves audiobooks, strong coffee, and scratching his dog’s back.

While he still travels, he and his family have made Jacksonville, Florida their home.
