Stories and Legends in Print
by E Gale Buck

A quiet avocation of writing began in December, 1983 when Gale had a problem with Christmas. "A Birthday Story" blossomed into a tradition of writing that has spanned nearly three decades and produced over 200 works. Most stories have been written for Gale's wife and children for special events such as Christmas, Birthdays, Mother's Day, Anniversaries, Valentine's Day and the like. You might not know it by looking at him but Gale is a hopeless romantic.

In 1993 Gale "published" the first collection of stories entitled Wanderings in Love and Devotion (my favorite dribble). The initial publishing effort consisted of one copy put on display in his office - a reminder.

As a piper and participant in the Highland traditions, Gale wrote The Highander's Way which was completed in December, 2000 and was self-published (about 10 copies). Working with a group of experienced writers The Highander's Way has grown into a two volume set under the title of Vrenessbith, which has been published in two volumes - Awakening and Catharrachd.

Gale became heir to a tradition of quiet service to the requests of Saint Nicholas in October, 2007. Folks did not understand the legend of Santa's Woodsman until The Woodsman's Tale, share your life without expectation was published in 2010. The Woodsman's work continues in Finding Nicholas, secrets of santa revealed by his woodsmen released in October, 2011. But the stories in Finding Nicholas were too complex and involved for friends to share. This was corrected in May, 2013 when The Secret Stories of Santa as told by his woodsmen for storytellers (and parents) was released. The stories from Finding Nicholas whittled down for sharing (plus some new ones). The next part of the Woodsman puzzle was the lineage of the thirteen Woodsmen,published in four volumes, A Quiet Service. You can read more HERE or visiting Amazon

The latest of Gale's exploits into fantasy involves the relationship between a wizard and a dragon. Both were orphaned at the same instant and came to depend on one another, though the dragon would argue that point. Explore Treasured Adversaries

. Current projects include the mystery of a man who lost his memory and uncovers a network of organized crime as he puts his life back together. A second project involves a college community stodying the idea of Time. This is a tale of romance, personal relationships, political intrique, life in a collge town, and of course Time.
