    1. I m an ex private investigator now writing full time in the Pacific Northwest, where I live in a small house on a small island with my small dog, Sadie, who has energy than Robin Williams.As a kid I was always making stuff skates, skateboards, skimboards, skis, sleds, clothing, furniture, wood carvings, Easter baskets, comic books, you name it I was the mother of all nerds Anyway, I think I was searching for the one thing I wanted to keep on making for the rest of my life Then one day I discovered Choose Your Own Adventure books Remember those You as the reader were asked to make choices for the characters Choose Your Own Adventures were a lot of fun and I just had to make my own And so I did, writing three of them, and I ve been hooked on writing ever since Just think, I could have been hooked on making Easter baskets In high school, I was a fine balance of jock and nerd I played football and baseball and somehow managed to write five complete novels So how was I able to write so much and play sports and study at the same time Easy No girlfriend In fact, I didn t kiss a girl until I was in college In college, I still managed to write two books and over 80 short stories Even with all the kissing Eventually, I graduated with a perfectly useless degree in anthropology, got married two weeks later, and shortly thereafter started my career as an insurance claims investigator I ve made better choices I would spend the next four years researching and writing my first adventure novel, THE LOST ARK At the age of 28, I landed one of the biggest agents in Hollywood Welcome to Hollyweird I discovered that I had a natural knack for writing screenplays Go figure For the next two years I worked exclusively with Paramount Pictures and Alphaville Productions developing various movie and TV projects Some things worked out most didn t I learned much and I m thankful for the experience Ultimately, I realized I had strayed far from my true love writing novels but never very far from my other true love donuts And so, with a little bit of money in the bank and some time on my hands okay, fine, I got fired from my insurance job , I moved to Carlsbad and wrote three books DARK HORSE, MOON DANCE, and CURSED Being married to a dreamer is tough Being married to a dreamer and a writer is damn near impossible Yup, you guessed it, after seven tough years my wife was gone, baby, gone Not to worry I eventually met another girl poor thing , and together we moved up to Seattle Things turned ugly fast I lost my job, my car, my money, the girl, went bankrupt, and yet somehow wrote THE MUMMY CASE in a freezing cold basement in the middle of a rainy winter, unemployed and stealing food usually donuts from local grocery stores Like the prodigal son, I eventually moved back home to southern California, where I got a new job, got my private investigator s license, got a new movie agent, moved to Hollywood and was fortunate enough to have my first novel published in November 2005 by Mundania Press In 2006, I wrote ELVIS HAS NOT LEFT THE BUILDING, and in 2007, I moved up to Oregon where I eventually became a vegetarian for moral reasons , and wrote the first draft of my ghost story, THE BODY DEPARTED In 2008, I moved back to southern California to help with my sick father Now in 2009, you guessed it, I m back up in the Pacific Northwest, living on a small island in a small home with my small doggie It s a simple, peaceful lifea life filled with writing, hiking, and Beggin Strips Remember life is too short to work at a job you don t love So follow your dreams, my friends, even if it means living on a faraway island in the back of beyond As you can see, I ve come far from those days of stealing donuts Full circle, if y

    2. The crazy thing about this book is that I knew about the King Arthur legend than I even thought This was a crazy wild ride and the direction I thought it was going it never went Good job keeping the pace This is pure fantasy and a joy to read.

    3. A good startInteresting version of the Arthur legends The abrupt ending makes you want to continue reading Am hoping the religious aspect isn t just for the sake of writing about religion.

    4. One of my favorite booksI just loved this booke story, the characters, the lessonsIt is a different style of writing There are layers to it while fun, it is also very thought provoking.

    5. I stumbled across Arthur Grail Quest 1, by J.R Rain when I was cruising the top one hundred Arthurian tales on doesn t everyone and wondered what sort of a twist J.R Rain would bring to the old grail tale The cover is quite misleading in that this book is an urban fantasy, and very little of it is truly Arthurian, although there are some references But that is okay the story itself it what is important, not the historical antecedents.The Blurb Hidden deep within the ancient, mist covered hills o [...]

    6. It is always refreshing to read a book that is both well edited and a great story THE GRAIL LEGACY is just such a book.In fiction writing, it is often the goal of the writer to produce a suspension of disbelief in the reader So what happens when it is the writer protagonist that is put in a situation where he must so what he usually must engender in others In order to succeed along these lines, the author crafting a tale about a fictional author must dig deep and proceed slowly J R Rain has done [...]

    7. I enjoyed the story so far The story moved along at a very good pace with action all through it It could have been longer or combine the trilogy into one book I loved Aurther, Marion, and even the dragon I loved the correlation of entertwining God s love with the medevial storyline The main character, James, I found to be very irritating in his unbelief, unwillingness to open or broaden his mind even in the midst of seemingly impossible situations He is the most pessimistic, cry over spilled mil [...]

    8. Unexpected, but a pleasant journey.Authors seem to write themselves into their books often In this particular story J.R is front and center Is there a little boy who doesn t want to fight along side King Arthur after reading about him He takes us on a spiritual journey this time I m enjoying reading his philosophical views They seem in line with my own, but evolved.

    9. While an enjoyable read it certainly wasn t what I thought it would be J.R Rain constantly surprises and delights me with his books and this one is no differentwell except my favorite character was not one of the main characters, I loved the dragon looking forward to reading the rest of the series

    10. Very good so far, reading this on my kindle listening to Ready Player One on Audible Author has a great sense of humor, and so far this has been not at all what I expected, but very good, will be checking out by JR Rain Finished the book, would recommend, however you might want to wait until the trilogy is complete if you don t like stopping in the middle of a story

    11. I wanted to like this book than I did The description made it sound awesome and I ve read this author before it started out really good But unfortunately a few chapters in I found it rather far fetched I had trouble keeping my attention focused on it I liked the main character James He reminds me of a friend of mine I may go back and try to read this again but not right now.

    12. Lots of actionA fast read and enjoyable I m not into King Arthur and history, but I enjoyed this til the end The only problem with a book with no ending is finding the next book I didn t see it mentioned Will try to find it.

    13. This wasn t what I expected I didn t realize that it was going to be a new age story in the style of The Celestine Prophecy.

    14. The ONLY reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that it s ENTIRELY TOO SHORT It s supposed to be a trilogy, but three of these stories should be combined into one.

    15. SecretSo much in this books reminds one to be a better person and to give thanks to the One who has created us beautiful read

    16. Easy readI feel this story keeps you interested but I am some what disappointed that it is to be continued.

    17. Ok, but not his best.Not a bad piece of mind candy But it has a lot of touchy_feely new age religious beliefs The ending has sequel written all over it.

    18. Fun to read, but so short and undeveloped, it felt like watching a trailer for a motion picture The cliffhanger ending was another blot, as nothing in the previous story was finished.

    19. Good readThis is a good book Totally got me into it from the beginning I wonder what the council told James his purpose is
