Wembley Tewkes:Imperfections On the Edge
by C. Michael Perry
Did you ever have a recurring dream only to wake up one day and find it was NOT a dream?
Wembley Tewkes, of Yarmouth, Maine, is an average and very successful fourteen-year-old. Everything comes easily to Wembley: the good and the bad. Of Welsh origin himself he can trace his ancestry back to both the Picts and the Celts. Once enemies this proud warrior blood is now combined and flowing through the veins of our 21st Century youth. His parents had left Wales in 1999 when he was an infant to escape the heavy hand of the last strong British policy towards the region, and leave behind them the memory of a second son lost in childbirth. They came to America where they settled near Portland, Maine. Through strange and fantastic adventures, completely unplanned or unexpected by Wembley or his family, he begins to sense that he may have a mystic and hidden connection to the magic and lore of his native land.
His nemesis is Evie Griffith, who has a common and similar secret unknown to Wembley. She has been alive and not aged a day since her birth in 500AD. He is tempted, teased, badgered and bullied by her. She is different. She has some sort of power; power to hurt him — emotionally. He can’t explain it. His friends and family don’t understand it. No one can do anything about it.
Through Wembley’s wide variety of interests he experiences strange, exotic, and uncommon, even disturbing adventures centered around business, farming, Scouting, service to others, theatre, military history, swimming and other sports, along with trips to Wales to visit his ‘Grans ’. There is something about Wales that calls him back.
Some of Wembley’s excursions — his DreamTravels — happen within our universe, our era of time. Most find him in an alternate reality; a second dimension; even in another universe, and always out of his own time. But each encounter with these strange and unusual faraways will lead him closer to his ancient home; and to his destiny.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
Isn’t adolescence difficult enough to navigate through without being taken to other realities at the drop of an uncontrollable thought — yours or someone else’s…or on someone else’s whim?
The three books in this series are about that time of uncomfortability: Adolescence. How can anyone really be comfortable during adolescence? That time of feeling awkward and out of place comes to all of us. What are the most embarrassing, unnerving and difficult things for a teen to face? Everything that Wembley faces! Wembley Tewkes is abnormal in his relatively comfortable life as a confident adolescent, but his world is about to be shaken back down to normal. All of the ‘normal’ things that happen during this time to make anyone uncomfortable will be exaggerated and compounded by the freaky, eerie, unsettling and just plain weird experiences that Wembley will go through. Every effort will be made, by whatever unseen or ancient powers, to take Wembley out of his norm — his comfort zone — in fantastic ways. For what Wembley has to do, what he is destined to do, will be the most un-normal and uncomfortable thing of all: he will become his own forebear. There will be over 50 generations between his present day life in the 21st Century and his beginning of his own line of descendency in AD525.
Magic, time-travel, runes and scrolls, prophecies and predictions, swords, sorcery, love and deception will haunt the life of Wembley Tewkes as he is exposed to his hidden destiny, and is compelled to enter into it and live it to the best of his abilities. He has an unrevealed mission to fulfill; a destiny to align himself with in order to become the greatest individual he can become. He will leave everything that is loved by him and comfortable to him behind him as he lives this new life.
