A Bedtime Poem   Careful child, for when you sleep, Trolls and goblins like to creep, Through the field and to your bed, Such awful terror, such wretched dread.

    Malek – A look at the villain

    I just published Chapter 1 of Trials here, and thought it would be fun to explore one of the villains that I introduce in that Chapter. His name is Malek, which is actually Arabic meaning King.
