Daniel Paul Sandoval about this book: My favorite character in Robin Hood was always "Little John". There is something to be said for brute strength and a soul full of passion. "Little John" used these traits to excel in fighting with the quarter staff. I wondered what it would be like to place a quarter staff in the hands of a modern fighter. As I researched the different methods of stick fighting I learned that fighting styles across the globe have their own intricacies. I amplified these styles in my book Staff Master to build a world of underground fighting that is about go to the mainstream public.
At the heart of my story is a boy from England, much like "Little John" who fights with a quarter staff and battles the world. He fights with his father over his future, falls in with what seems to be the wrong crowd, finds a friend, and falls in love. If you enjoy action, romance, world travel, or speculative fiction this book is for you.
