The Nandia Trilogy
There was a time in humankind’s future when the species populated planets within many galaxies. Some societies had evolved to the point where a few individuals were capable of telepathy, teleportation and effective healing. On these planets, the nurturing of individual talents and abilities was given the highest priority. These were societies where effective healing was commonplace — where the human lifespan usually exceeded three centuries.
And yet, most planets had not evolved in this manner. In these societies warfare was the religion. Much of their propaganda was devoted to idealizing war. Addiction rates were at epidemic level — mental, emotional and physical epidemics a way of life. Environmental degradation was the norm, species extinction rates were high. Education had devolved into preaching superstition and greed. Economies were based on competition, not cooperation. The divide between the haves and the have nots was extreme. Most of the civilizations on these planets self-destructed.
It was the purpose of the Galactic Grand Council to locate and train competent individuals to serve as delegates to these troubled planets. Their mission? To intervene during the vulnerable years when a society was most likely to self-destruct. The Council had neither military might, nor could impose economic sanctions. What it did have was a small cadre of dedicated delegates. Some of these unusual people died during their missions. A few of them were able to inspire civilizations to trust in the power of the individual and embrace life-sustaining lifestyles.
The Nandia Trilogy recounts the intriguing adventures of an extraordinary team of these Council delegates…
Set in the distant future, “Nandia’s Copper” is the tale of several Galactic Council delegates who have been sent to remedy a deadly epidemic that gnaws at the heart of the city of Geasa. To overcome this crisis, these delegates employ alternative healing, dreamtime journeys and telepathy amidst a backdrop of social unrest and religious persecution.
Once again, Nandia and Bernard find themselves in a mission beset with uncertainty and danger. King Sabre of planet Aesir is haunted by the ghost of his father and becomes unhinged. Merchant starships are being plucked out of the sky by privateers. Is this the beginning of a coup d’état? With the help of an immortal chambermaid and a teleporting cat, Berns and Nandia must unravel this mess before King Sabre, and the planet Aesir itself, self-destruct.
In this, the final saga of The Nandia Trilogy, Nandia has become a hunted villainess on the planet Praesepe. Erylian beseigers are kidnapping young Praesepians and shielding telepathic messages. Can Bearns, Elli and Dunstan arrive in time to thwart the end to Nandia’s home planet.

Delightful and profound.
I enjoyed these books so much, on the surface it’s a delightful story with engaging characters and an interesting plot. This is a bit deceptive however, as the real joy of the books is the wisdom and truth that find their way into every encounter. –avidreader (Amazon 5-star review/verified purchase)
Fun and adventure filled story!
Adventure and mystery abound in this 1st book of the Nandia’s Trilogy. Lovable characters and a story that makes you not want to put the book down until you find out how they made it through the twists and turns they are faced with along their path. Especially enjoyed the abilities the characters have mastered to communicate with each other and travel to bring about healing to others. Also, how the author portrays each of them makes you want to go along on the adventure and learn these special ways of healing. Can’t wait for the next book to come out! –Suzanne (Amazon 5-star review)

A great adventure awaits!
A great adventure awaits! It’s a fast-moving plot, with inexpected twists, charming characters — it’s one of my new favorite books. I think readers from any age group will enjoy. –Bridget (reader-submitted 5-star review)
I didn't want it to end.
The future seems so familiar in Ned Wolf’s fantastic tale. There are villeins and dangers to overcome just as time is about to run out on the human race. The delightful difference between this and other books of this genre is that the heroine and hero, Nandia and Bernard, instead of bombs and bluster, use their wit and personal magic to save the day. It’s a great read, a real page turner. I look forward to the last 2 books in the trilogy. –Jerry Downs (Amazon 5-star review)
I find these books very uplifting and lightening to my spirit...
Thank you for your thought provoking articles — that I look forward to receiving in my email.
Also, I wish to express my gratitude to you for gifting me with Book one of the Nandia Series. I so enjoyed reading Book I which definitely was a page turner. It is a book, rich in wisdom with a wealth of wonderful tips that I really appreciated as an amateur dowser for a number of years now, who also is aspiring to increase my intuitive and self-healing skills as well as a bit of telepathic capability. The teleporting may have to wait till my next incarnation, but in the mean time, I never cease to be amazed at all the little synchronicities in my days and encounters, including being led to your website (simply out of curiosity) even though I missed attending your presentation at the San Jose Dowsers meeting.
I particularly love all the beautiful examples of how to approach problems with a loving, open & creative mind to effect a win-win for all concerned; and how to peacefully & very skillfully enter into a relationship with others with compassion & respect, to facilitate trust and willingness to open up to the love & assistance being offered.
I am also quite pleased that my husband took an interest this week in reading the first book after I completed it. And now I’m off on the journey of experiencing more adventure and wisdom in Book II of this very special series of books you have authored, with Book III waiting in the wings to be read & experienced as well in good time. They may look small in size, but they are mighty in substance! HOW WELCOME they are — as tools for living on this ‘wild and wooly’ planet.
I might add that now that I’ve finished Nandia’s Copper & am currently engrossed in the 2nd book of this series, I’ve noticed that both my husband and I, are taking advantage of more frequent free moments in our days, to read another chapter or two. I find these books very uplifting and lightening to my spirit – which is so welcome in a world where our news media & so many movies produced, seem to focus so heavily on promoting fear, more polarity, more cynicism, which can so easily drain one’s energy instead of uplifting one’s spirit.
With much gratitude,
