Book One: "Way of the Wizards(TM)" Series
Fifteen wizards who live in a barren place need to find apprentices to pass on their knowledge of magic and wizardry before they die. The first problem they face is remembering how to speak, as they currently use only telepathic communication. This gave me a fun way of introducing each of them and a glimpse into their characters.
They send out seven wizards into the world who each bring back an apprentice. One wizard notices that four of the candidates are females this causes a discussion on the reasons why wizards have always been men and they have to change their rules. This created a way for me to look at the male and female differences real and imagined. Each apprentice has a form of communication problem giving me an opportunity to explore the ways kids adapt to protect themselves from life experiences and different forms of life abuse.
Each apprentice has to go before the higher council who has to decide if each of them have the right spirit, stamina, strength and are dedicated to become wizards and to live in the middle of nowhere.
There is lots of problem solving that takes place as each group adapts to the other and how each individual personality unfolds. As the wizards have lived so long with only each other for company they have all became more and more like each other and as things change so do they slowly become more of an individual.
