Hey kids! Come see Jeff Stone as he talks about the final book, #7: Dragon, in his award-winning middle grade series, The Five Ancestors. Jeff is a martial arts black belt and will demonstrate awesome kung fu moves, especially the "Flying Dragon." The six previous books in the series are: Book 1: Tiger; Book 2: Monkey; Book 3: Snake; Book 4: Crane; Book 5: Eagle; Book 6: Mouse.

Like the characters in his stories, Jeff practices the martial arts daily. He holds a black belt in Shaolin Do Kung Fu, and often trains in other styles as part of his research for his books. He loves to do demonstrations during his events and often invites kids to learn the basic animal moves!

Jeff Stone has worked as a photographer, an editor, a maintenance man, a technical writer, a ballroom dance instructor, a concert promoter, and a marketing director for companies that design schools, libraries, and skateboard parks. Like the heroes of The Five Ancestors series, he was adopted when he was an infant. He began searching for his birthmother when he was 18; he found her 15 years later. The author lives with his wife and two children in Carmel, IN.
