The Odyssey Series
A Paris Odyssey
American Grant Decker is in Paris on a photography assignment. When he arrives at Gare du Nord train station, he discovers just how unprepared he is to navigate this new world where the language is both vaguely familiar and baffling. ”Vous ne parlez pas français?” My brain turned around three times and then went to sleep!
’Determined to get his bearings, Grant explores the length and breadth of the city on the metro. But it is when he makes new friends among some street performers that he discovers a different Paris. These off-beat characters help him sharpen his eye and open his heart to the many love stories that weave through ‘the city of light.’
Join Grant as he discovers the Paris of the Romans, the Celts, and Medieval Paris, while descending into the catacombs and visiting holy places. This is another odyssey of growth and discovery. Funny, poignant, and magical, A Paris Odyssey is a compelling story of adventure, friendship, and love.
A Paris Odyssey, the third book in the Odyssey series by Axel Forrester, has earned the Gold Award of Achievement from the International Review of Books.

A Chinese Odyssey
It is 2010 and American Grant Decker is living his dream of being a photographer in Cornwall. He’s got a chance to go to China, courtesy of Charon, his ex-girlfriend. What she hasn’t told him is that the trip, with a group of American teachers, includes a risky plan that could bring the wrath of the Chinese government upon him. He slips and slides through a packed itinerary encountering places and people that surprise him – people like Guy Anderson, Dr Sòng, the Mosuo people and the Chinese barber/musicians in Dali who will remain in his memory forever. Despite restrictions, he manages to take some of the best pictures of his life and make his escape with a bit of help from a witchy connection in St Ives. With the same highly readable prose as the first book, A Cornish Odyssey, join Grant in a new round of engaging and funny adventures.
