Many listeners email me each day. They typically have problems with the men in their lives. The truth that most of them don't realize is that their emotionally unavailable man or narcissistic man has an undiagnosed syndrome, complex, or disorder.

Jarl had gotten his riddle from a kindly, grandmotherly sort of witch. But friendly or not, she'd told him pretty firmly he had to solve it if he was to become a hero who could fight off evil and find his way home to Earth. She didn't warn him, however, that this very riddle would also lead him into the most bizzare adventures imaginable - and that he would soon find himself contending with ogres, bandits, talking trees, and the dark minions of the Shadowlord himself.

But things get complicated quickly when Jessie, a stunning woman with a secretive past and a body that won't quit, rides into Craig's life as part of the OutKasts, one of the Orphan's biggest rival crews.
