For those of you just stumbling upon this website for the first time, let me explain what this site is about.

My father, JP Wagner, was a writer. He was a regularly published journalist, but his dream was to become a novelist. Unfortunately, his life was cut short by Lupus. His dying wish was for his books to be published.

That’s where I come in. I’m Beth Wagner, his daughter. My background is in comics and self-publishing. My father tasked me with the job of protecting and publishing his books, all 35 (at initial count, but we’re sure there are more).

This website is the worklog and promotional site for this project. Wherein, my dad’s work is promoted and people can watch as I take on the role of editor/writer to accomplish my task.

To speak of Ardan the Grim is to speak of many things. One must tell of how he was the last in a line of men who had stood for far Tharid. A line descended from Ardan the Fair, who left Asbaln that there should be no quarrels with his brother, Randell of Avantir. Both of them being sons of the famous Guardian of the Sword of Avantir, Rorick. Wyrta the seer spoke to him in these words: "In the twentieth year, on spring's first day, seek a path to the West away. Go to the land of the Silver Hair, for thy fate does await thee there." Years after Rorick and Conel rode forth to free the land of Asbaln from the barbaric tribes, comes one man who will ride forth to save the kingdom and he will wear... The Crystal Crown.
