What Price A Kingdom

Murder, avarice, betrayal and treason. A young queen must find courage to save her realm

by Dr Dmis

Against all the odds, a young queen fights to retain her kingdom and protect her subjects after the murder of her parents. With a corrupt government baying at her heels and assassins at every turn, can she stay alive long enough to save her realm from its oppressors?
With what few loyal guardians she has left, plans are made for one final stand. Summoning all her will and determination, as she embarks on a course of action that is unheard of in any known history of her country.
As her father the king had once told her, ‘Courage in not given to a person, it is found when most needed’. Now, she must find out for herself if she has the strength to stay the course and save her country from those that would see it fall.          

Spiffing Author

"Dr Dmis," the enigmatic pseudonym behind the captivating words, conceals the unexpected author Philip Bloxham. Against all expectations, he embarked on a writing journey, defying his background and circumstances.

Born into a family immersed in equestrian pursuits, Philip's true passions lay elsewhere. Nature and animals fascinated him from an early age, with memories of caring for puppies and working on a fruit farm. However, it was fishing that truly captured his heart, leading him to compete at a national level.

Driven by camaraderie, Philip explored the culinary world, mastering the art of cooking and managing teams. His talent attracted eager patrons who booked weeks in advance for his delectable creations.

Seeking fresh challenges, Philip transitioned to quality engineering and dimensional metrology, spending over two decades reviewing drawings and collaborating with exceptional teams.

But it was during sleepless nights around nine years ago that Philip's writing ambitions took flight. Thoughts poured onto paper, gradually shaping into a compelling story. Encouraged by a friend, he ventured into self-publishing, overcoming challenges with the help of professionals.

Now, under the guise of "Dr Dmis," Philip's book, "What Price a Kingdom," has emerged in e-book, paperback, and hardback formats. His writing style forges intimate connections with characters, infusing humor, bravery, and loyalty into their journeys.

Dividing his original book into three parts, "Lives Less Ordinary: A Place of Our Own," "Lost Angel of Paris," and "Plight of the Raven," Philip's trilogy promises adventure, romance, and honor.

Inspired by his own experiences, Philip believes that everyone harbors remarkable stories within. He encourages others to share their unique narratives, igniting inspiration in others and unlocking untapped potential.
