In his effort to promote higher literacy and wholesome creativity for future generations, child literacy advocate and author Chad Trisef recently visited The Youth Center’s R.A.S.C.A.L. S. Reading Program where he read excerpts from his books, The Oracle Series.
The 41-year-old father and CFO for five companies is from Portland, Oregon. He started out with a desire to write books that were wholesome, fun and age appropriate for his own five children who range in age from 7 to 17 years old.
“Becoming a father only increased my desire to help educate children as a literacy advocate, and to make The Oracle Series clean, fun and wholesome literature,” he said. “My kids have all read the series and love them, and even given me new ideas.”
Trisef travels the country at his own expense to promote his purpose of teaching life lessons through literacy that will help all readers become better people. He dreamed up The Oracle Series in 2004, spending the next seven years researching, outlining and doing all the groundwork to get all the pieces in place to finally publish book one in 2011. His series is now available for purchase in paperback, eBook and audiobook, and is distributed world-wide.
“Oracle mixes adventure with epic fantasy, science, history, geography and legend,” Trisef said. He recently created his own non-profit to help reach more schools and communities with the goal of improving the world through higher literacy. He hopes his books will someday be shown on the big-screen in movies and other media.
According to Trisef’s publicist, The Oracle Series explains why Pangaea separated, why iconic real-life geographic mysteries exist, and why it is central character teenager Ret Cooper’s destiny to cure the world physically and socially. It chronicles his quest as he travels the world exploring the planet’s greatest geographic mysteries while collecting natures six core physical elements (earth, fire, ore, wind, wood and water), which he places inside the Oracle. However, along the way Ret witnesses the world’s desperate need for certain social elements such as freedom, charity, self-control, forgiveness, trustworthy leadership, the value of family and love. As the series progresses, the trivial task of collecting elements yields a more noble cause of changing lives.
