Award-winning author Duane Porter started writing to help his daughter Karen with her art assignment. Their first collaboration was a picture book “The Best Ride.” Then Duane began writing novels for children, turning a life-long passion for chess into a teaching adventure “Charlie and the Chess Set.”
Duane traveled to Ireland to research his first Trilogy. This adventure follows eleven-year old Molly O’Malley as she discovers her Irish roots, a leprechaun, and magical complications. Journey with her in “Molly O’Malley and the Leprechaun,” “Molly O’Malley: Rise of the Changeling,” and “Molly O’Malley and the Pirate Queen.”
Duane lives in Blue Springs, Missouri, with his wife, daughter, his mother-in-law, a dog, and fifteen chess sets.
