My name is Griffin Hehmeyer. I am 8 years old, and I am the author of The Marakon Ways. I hope that you like it. The story is inspired by a number of fantasy and adventure books, such as The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Sleeping Beauty. I have loved fantasy for my entire life, and I love to hear tales of adventure. When I first started this book, I had a hard time thinking of ideas. As I got closer to the ending it was easier to think of what to say. I am going to write five more books in this series. I think that you should try to write a book too. It is lots of fun, whether it is a book of less than a page or a book that has more than a hundred pages. I hope that my book inspires you.
