An enchanted place packed with vampires and mystical creatures will help Ralph find what he needs the most—himself —in this inspirational young adult fantasy by C. Michael Bennis.I began creating nightly Ralph stories twenty-five year’s ago.  Friends cautioned: ‘once you start you can never stop.  Imagine returning from a stressful day at the office and having to pick up the burden of another nighttime story?’  Ironically, that never occurred.  The shock came when I had to stop for lack of an audience.  The best I can describe: it felt like wandering around looking anxiously for something lost.

I began creating nightly Ralph’s Place stories thirty-nine years ago.  Friends cautioned: ‘once you start you can never stop.  Imagine returning from a stressful day at the office and having to pick up the burden of another nighttime story?’  Ironically, I never experienced the problem.  On the contrary, I crashed when I no longer had an audience.  I can best describe the withdrawal as wandering aimlessly through the house looking for something I’d never ever find.

Ralph’s Place is a rich fantasy inspired by the daily bedtime stories I first created nightly for our son Alex, who succumbed to cancer at six-years old, and later for Daniel who was a fan for many years.
