This week: Justin Dockins!

Justin Dockins was born is St. Louis, Missouri and is a proud husband and soon-to-be father (4/10/14!). He is a Licensed Massage Therapist, musician, and is currently back in school for his nursing degree. He enjoys going on hikes and long road trips with his wife, and also their three dogs, whenever possible.
"Tales of the Bodhisattva: the Khurran" is Justin's first novel, and he is currently working on volume two of the series.
He currently resides in St. Louis, Missouri.

Upon the beautiful planet of Kaliya, the Khurran (eight foot tall sloth-like folks) live peaceful lives in the trees and mountains. Many of the Khurran of Wild Mountain still worship Jesh, the goddess of their mountain, and some remember when she walked amongst the mortals. After thousands of years another god awakens, though not one that any living being would worship. He is Rokkhu, born of darkness, blight on the face of Kaliya. Leaf, a young Khurran, is beginning to learn the truth of who he truly is, for he is a bodhisattva: a being of light, reincarnated once again to counter the forces of darkness that emerge in the world. Reluctant to disrupt his peaceful and quiet life upon the mountain, he nonetheless must face his truth and look for other bodhisattvas in the world to teach him, for he has been chosen to stop the dark god, Rokkhu, and restore safety to the mortals and gods alike. Journeying through a world in which the spirits and gods interact with the mortals, Leaf and his companions must unravel a spiral of dark deeds that began thousands of years ago, and that have only begun to come to their fruition.
