Travel underwater to a colossal coral reef where the creatures of the world's single superocean look to wise advisors for advice about relationship dynamics, changing careers, preconceptions about others, and more.


Created for wisdom seekers of any age, The Dolphin and the Octopus is a new fable told in an old writing style, much like the famous McGuffey's Eclectic Primers or Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories from the turn of the nineteenth century. In order to set the fable apart from most commercial stories, it's written with an intentional lack of contractions, as well as deliberate repetitions of both phrases and ideas. These repetitions are meant to draw the reader into an ancient kind of suspended reality, reinforce a concept, and even give the story its own poetic rhythm. Also, a few words of particular interest to the fable's many lessons are defined within the narrative itself and are meant to enhance the overall feeling of learning within the story.


The Elephant and the Dragon is already available, with the third and final story in the Fable Triad still being written.


I welcome readers of any age and even hope that parents think of this story as a family book— perhaps one to be read aloud and discussed together.
