Welcome!

I’m J.L. McCreedy, author of The Orphan of Torundi and the Liberty Frye series.

This site is a work in progress (aren’t we all?) but for now, you can find media links on the menu bar above, and if you wish to know a bit about me and the worlds in which I live, you can read of my misadventures at TongaTime.com.

Contact: Please feel free to drop me a note at author (“at” sign) jlmccreedy (dot) com

Happy voyaging!


Personally autographed copies of all books are available for purchase.
