Dave Neuendorf

Dave Neuendorf has been an avid reader of fantasy, science fiction, and political thrillers since the 1950's, when he would rather read than romp during recess in school.

The first fruit of his efforts is The Summoned King, published in February 2016, as book one of The Kalymbrian Chronicles. The Development of the series will proceed as time allows while he continues to pursue his day job as a Java software development consultant.

Dave has been married since 1976 to his one love, Patricia. He is the father of three sons and grandfather of one boy and one girl. He and his family live with their three dogs, a Samoyed, a Siberian Husky, and a Giant Alaskan Malamute in Aurora, Indiana.

The Summoned King (The Kalymbrian Chronicles, vol. 1)

Indiana high school senior James Madison Young falls asleep while studying at the library. He wakes to find himself in another world, filled with magic, danger and romance. He has been summoned by court wizard Maynard to be the king of Kalymbria. Forced into marriage with the beautiful and magically powerful yet untrained Julia Roper for his queen, he must restore the lapsed Constitution in the face of opposition from a hostile Council of Advisors, and defend his new country from the evil machinations of the wizard Ruinga and her allied kingdom of Venicka. Rediscovering the lost art of enchantment may provide him with a powerful edge in his quest, if he can survive the assassins and conspiracies arrayed against him.

The Enchanter King (The Kalymbrian Chronicles, vol. 2)

James Madison Young, American teen, has been summoned to serve as the figurehead King of Kalymbria. Not one to be satisfied with a do-nothing role, he has wrested control from the corrupt ruling council. After solidifying his hold on the reins of government power, he has instituted the first of his planned reforms: abolition of slavery and human sacrifice. A year after his summoning, he now must defeat rebellious former Council members who seek a return to the old ways. Martialing the newly raised Kalymbrian Legion, he leaves his pregnant wife, Julia, to serve as regent, and sets out to suppress the nascent rebellion before it can plunge his country into unbridled civil war. Along the way, he invents powerful new enchanted devices, and meets interesting new allies, dangerous new foes, and a dragon!
