Victoria Schwimleyabout this book: Fight for the Kingdom is a fantasy story about two boys who transport to the Kingdom of Anka when they wander behind a waterfall. There they meet wonderful, interesting characters such as Fizzle girl and the flying warriors. On this quest, Aiden is out to prove to his father that he's responsible enough to join the adventure scouts. What could be more befitting than to save an entire kingdom from an angry dragon, intent on incinerating the population.
Writing this book gave me immense pleasure, as it contains all the children in my family. Each character brings forth one small trait of each child. Adding to the uniqueness of the book is the fact that the cover was drawn by my daughter-in-law, who is the mother of the two boys, Aiden and Trystan. I felt the cover depicted the story quite well.
Although the intended audience is grade school, I'm receiving praise from adults as well, stating they enjoyed the adventure.
I think the biggest challenge in writing this story was researching the forest and survival facts, especially in regards to the bears. I definitely didn't want to give children false information if the need ever arose for them to face a wild bear.
I hope the kids who read this book will learn something about honor, promises, and empathy for others. But most importantly, I want them to have fun. The book is available in print, e-book, and audiobook.
