Chris is a weirdo who flies his geek flag with pride. A true misfit his entire life, Chris embraces who he is even at school where he is a teacher at a K-6 science and technology-based school in Nixa, Missouri.

Editorial Reviews

"The Wards of Iasos is a wonderfully wrought coming of age story. A beautifully tragic journey of awkward outcasts learning about trust, love, and belonging. Set in a Tolkein-esque land of myriad creatures, magic and prejudice, fantasy fiction lovers will thoroughly enjoy Wilson's masterful storytelling!" - C. McNeal, Goodreads"This is a very intriguing tale of wondrous heroes in a world that is shattering, unnoticed underneath the feet of all its inhabitants. Follow these characters as they venture deep into the forest in search of adventure. This book is full of action, adventure, and friendship. This is definitely a must read for all fantasy lovers." -A. McNeal, Missouri Children's Book Review Board"An amazing tribute to the influence of friendship and the opportunities second chances provide, written with heart, humor, and an insight into what it is like to be an outcast." - Jennifer Librarian & Springfield-Greene County Library District Reference Associate
