New Book About Man Behind Narnia

I am in the midst of writing The Professor of Narnia: The C. S. Lewis Story which will be published by Believe Books in September 2008. This will be a biography of C. S. Lewis targeted for older children and youth. Here is a description of the book. . . .

Have you ever wanted to meet the man behind the magical land of Narnia? Now you can meet C. S. Lewis, the Oxford tutor and Cambridge professor who wrote the seven books: The Chronicles of Narnia. Learn what made the creator of the most beloved fairy tales of the 20th century the man who he was. Along the way you will visit all the important places of Lewis’s life: from Belfast, Northern Ireland to the steps of the Parthenon in Greece and you will also meet some of Lewis’s best friends, like J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Your tour guide for this fabulous journey is Will Vaus, author of Mere Theology: A Guide to the Thought of C. S. Lewis, founder of three C. S. Lewis Societies, leader of a C. S. Lewis tour to England, and one of the few people in the world who actually lived in The Narnia Cottage in Ireland. Will stepped through the wardrobe door for the first time when he was 9 years old, and now that he has three sons of his own he knows how much every young person who reads the Narnia books or has seen the blockbuster Disney/Walden Media Narnia movies wants to know more about the author of these delightful stories, C. S. Lewis. So come along for the ride and you may even get to meet the great lion Aslan himself.
