City author turns love of drawing into full time job.
He’s enjoyed sketching and drawing all his life. He never expected to become a published author.
But now a Lethbridge father has quit his day job to write imaginative stories for children.
Ryan Carriere’s first book is heading to local stores, with a second one scheduled before Christmas.
And he says they’ll be followed by at least two more adventure books for readers seven to 17.
The first, “Firestone,” is now available as a paperback or an Ebook. Subtitled “A Tale of the Eternal Stones,” Carriere says “It’s a young reader’s epic fantasy.”
“It’s set in a crumbling world, 12,000 years ago in a land of monsters and magic.”
Firestone is one of the foundational elements in that world, he explains. The second book in his series will be “Bloodstone.”
