Here is a little more about Chad and Return of the Wizard King:
Return of the Wizard King
After nearly eight centuries, the last wizard king seeks a return to Tralodren. But doing so requires the manipulation of some mercenaries oblivious to his goals.
The gladiator sold his soul for revenge. The knight’s a bigot. The dwarf only cares about regaining his honor. Even the wizardess seems too bookish for anyone’s good. But they’ve all been hired by a blind seer and his assistant to retrieve some forgotten knowledge kept hidden away in some jungle-strangled ruins.
Get in. Get out. Get paid. At least that’s what they thought. Instead, they uncover hidden agendas and ancient power struggles threatening to take the world to the brink of annihilation.
Welcome to Tralodren, a world rich in history, faith, and tales of adventure ?of which this story is but one of many.
Chad Corrie has enjoyed creating things for as far back as he can remember, but it wasn’t until he was twelve that he began to write. Since then he’s taken to writing comics/graphic novels, prose fiction of varying lengths, and an assortment of other odds and ends.
This sundry collection of works echoes part of his background in which he’s been an editor and writer for an online magazine, owned his own publishing company; worked as a pawn broker, bookseller, pizza cook, toy company rep, and magazine/book merchandiser, among other vocational exploits.
He also produces podcasts. Some of them are tied to his works and worlds but others, like Cauldron of Worlds and Pages From The Writer’s Desk, are set up to help those interested get the kind of insight and aid he would have enjoyed and benefited from when first starting out.
Chad also speaks from time to time at various venues about writing, world creation, comics/graphic novels, and other related issues, helping supply people with the information and resources they might need for taking their next step.
A Minnesota native, he continues to make his home in the “Land of Sky Blue Waters.”
