THE ROAD TO DENDURA,
C. L. Lewis / Young Adult Fiction Author
C. L. Lewis began her early career as an
emergency medical technician working
in the emergency room and field
settings. Lewis furthered her medical
education and eventually began a
career in physical therapy. However, it
was during her college years that she
had an opportunity to tutor many
students in the area of biological
sciences and chemistry. That is when
she realized teaching was her true
passion. "I loved seeing that little light
go on in someone's eyes when they
finally understood the concept or
equation I was trying to get across. Now
that's an accomplishment! The feeling
was so strong it never left me. "
- It may sound hokey but it's true - There's no better feeling than taking your mind off of yourself and
really helping someone, even if it's as simple as paying them a compliment! From then on, I knew I
enjoyed teaching no matter what I did. Mrs. Lewis went on to teach elementary school education.
Before retirement, she became involved in a local home school chapter and eventually went on to
found chapters of her own. "Home schooling has become a strong focus in my life, one I am
passionately involved in to this day."
"Being a working parent or a stay at home parent is extremely demanding. One doesn't have to go to
the extent of home schooling to be involved. However, you can choose to make a difference in your
child's education by simply helping out with homework or having your own reading time. I know that
parents have busy schedules or just need to relax when they come home. But, setting aside special time
to help your child in these areas will strengthen your family relationships and lessen the demands on
our teachers. I feel for our teachers. They are a critical part of society - just like parents. However, just
like parents, they are underpaid, overloaded, and they do not get the respect they so richly deserve!"
C .L. Lewis loves writing creative fictional stories about adventure and mystery. "I've always enjoyed
writing. I love fiction because you can go beyond the bounds of reality and ask yourself - What if?
Reading is the foundation for many other disciplines. It applies to just about everything we do. I
wanted to write a series that would help children and young adults want to read rather than feeling
like it's a punishment. I wanted to help not only build their vocabulary, but their imaginations.
Children need to imagine again. They don't need video games or television to do it for them, not that
those things are wrong. Some say that necessity is the mother of invention. I believe imagination is the
mother of invention:"
C. L. Lewis has written many stories, but her first heavily publicized work was Book One of The Creed
Griffon Series. Lewis said, "The Creed Griffon Series was, and is being, written to inspire her own
students to read more and to spend less time watching television." We asked her if her plan worked,
and she said, "It most certainly did! They discovered what I'd hoped they would discover. " "Each one
realized that a good children's fiction book can literally make you forget about your here and now. It
can transport and thrust a reader into whatever world or situation is in the book."
She went on to say, "Good young adult fiction books and well written fiction stories are not dull; they
are full of excitement and danger! They expand the mind and open the door to creativity and
imagination for all ages. Creed Griffon is an amazing young boy with all the common hopes and fears
of children of his age. Such as life, he is put into situations that test his integrity and moral fiber. He
does not quit! He does not let his friends down! Like a true hero, he endures and overcomes despite the
difficult trials he must face." Lewis is currently working on the remaining books of The Creed Griffon
Series. She has a total of five books planned and her second book of the series is well under way.
