Trankarri – The Boy with a Magical Pen is Christopher Dean’s first novel for children nine and older.

Christopher Dean is a graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature and is passionate about bringing great literature to the children’s market. Christopher lives with his wife and three children in Austin, TX.

Through much work and pain I discovered I could write a lot better than I can draw. So I turned my attention to creative writing and my love for English and Literature set me on a course to write full-time.

Great literature means a great story using all the literary devices one can muster including alliteration, assonance, consonance, onomatopoeia, metaphors, polysyndeton, anaphora and so much more. My hope is that kids and their parents will enjoy my work and contribution for many years.
