Read full description of the books:
City of Dreams is the first book in a trilogy about the life of Christ. Written like a thriller novel it also reads like a thriller novel, as it's an alternate history version of the story set in the present day. I spent the first third of the book being confused, the second third waiting for the author to screw up, and the last part sitting on the edge of my seat with suspense. The suspense is superbly well written, the age old tale is flawlessly reimagined, and the cliffhanger ending is full of promise. One of the best novel versions of the gospel story I've ever read (and I've read quite a few) the only downside is that the sequel was due to come out ten years ago and no one knows why it was never released. This is something I genuinely hope to rectify...

Stephen was born in 1950, in Nebraska in the USA. Most of his early life was spent in America where he earned a university degree in Fine Arts and attended theological college for two years. His first professional writing was done at Campus Life magazine in Chicago, where he was an editor and staff writer. During his five years at Campus Life he wrote hundreds of articles and several non-fiction books.
After a brief foray into the music business—as president of his own record company—he began full-time freelance writing in 1981. He moved to England in order to research Celtic legend and history. His first novel, In the Hall of the Dragon King, became the first in a series of three books (The Dragon King Trilogy) and was followed by the two-volume Empyrion saga, Dream Thief and then the Pendragon Cycle, now in five volumes: Taliesin, Merlin, Arthur, Pendragon, and Grail. This was followed by the award-winning Song of Albion series which consists of The Paradise War, The Silver Hand, and The Endless Knot.
He has written nine children's books, many of them originally offered to his two sons, Drake and Ross. He is married to Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, also a writer, with whom he has collaborated on some books and articles. They make their home in Oxford, England.
Stephen's non-fiction, fiction and children's titles have been published in twenty-one foreign languages. All of his novels have remained continuously in print in the United States and Britain since they were first published. He has won numereous industry awards for his novels and children's books, and in 2003 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters by the University of Nebraska.
