***** Fantasy & Science Fiction for Young Adults and Adults *****

Razzing the new guy at work is a time-honored tradition. There are all kinds of tricks you can play. But if the new guy is a young god trying to create his first universe - complete with suns, planets, and living creatures - those little tricks can have dire consequences. And if the co-worker who's playing those tricks is an evil god who hates the new guy, it's easy to see how things can get out of control.

What begins as a prank turns into a young god's desperate struggle to save his world.

From the moment you open this book, you'll meet unique and endearing characters from a fantasy world unlike anything you've seen before. And you'll laugh out loud as the plot twists in ways even omniscient gods could not have foreseen.

TheUniverse Builders Series is epic fantasy and science fiction at its best. If you enjoy imaginative fantasy, likeHarry Potter,Peter Jackson, or the tales ofTerry Pratchett, then this is what you've been waiting for.

Steve LeBel

What is the best way to describe an author who writes humorous fantasy?

Do we tell about bookshelves full of fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal books, his love of mythology, or the years he spent as dungeon master? Or is it more important to know his favorite player-character was a chaotic-good elven fighter / magic user? What about that stack of old comic books he never seems to get rid of?

But there is a serious side too. Is it important to know the other half of his bookshelf was filled with books on management, marketing, computer programming, and financial analysis? What about his years as a hospital president, or the many businesses he created, his years as a stock trader? What about his early years counseling drug addicts? What about his years in board rooms?

Is there a pattern to his travels around the world? Why chose places like King Arthur’s Camelot, the Temple of Delphi, Buddha’s Tree of Enlightenment, China’s Forbidden City, or the Great Pyramid of Egypt? What is it he's searching for?

And what does any of this have to do with writing a good fantasy book?

Perhaps it’s that mix within Steve that makes The Universe Builders such a delightful story with such serious undertones.
