His more than 130 sculptures dot the landscape with prehistoric representation, historical vignettes, and fantastical creatures such as his 250’ long dragon-serpent.

-Cindy Truelove, budding author of "Walking Naked." Truelove shares the experiences of “unlayering” her life and reliving an unpleasant childhood to bring about an honest memoir that just might change lives in a positive way.
Guests will get to hear these authors discuss their works in the intimate, outdoor setting of the Fiesta de Reyes courtyard under the autumn night sky. The event will also feature a question-and-answer portion and opportunities for one-on-one conversations and book signings with each author.
