“I have been passionate about hockey (playing, coaching and umpiring) for more decades than I care to remember! I truly believe that my involvement with the sport has changed my life for the better. One of the main inspirations for writing ‘Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past’ is to share my love of team sports: hockey, lacrosse and rugby all feature in the plot, as well as every dragon’s favourite sport, laminium ball. Why not treat yourself to a great read? If you love team sport already, you’ll be able to identify with the positive values of friendship and teamwork which sport promotes. If you’re not already a team sport fan, this book will win you over! Either way, why not share my love of reading and try this gripping, action-packed fantasy adventure, sprinkled with humour and imagination. If you’re anything like me, you can check out the interviews with other great authors on this site, to fuel your reading addiction.”                     Paul Cude
