Charles Little spent most of his childhood and teenage years with a book in his hands. He developed a desire to become an author while working on short stories and other creative writing assignments in school. His descriptive writing talent showed through in these assignments, with teachers often commenting that the vivid scenes and pictures he painted made them feel as if they were actually part of the story. As a young adult, Charles attempted on more than one occasion to write a book, but life always seemed to get in the way. On top of the challenges of a busy schedule, he came to feel that he was a writer without a story to tell. He’d all but given up on his dream until he read some book ideas that his friend and now collaborator Troy Pendleton had outlined. Those ideas came to life for Charles and for the first time since he was a kid, he felt like he finally had a story to tell. He co-founded New Legend Books and Comics with Troy and their first venture was the book “Dead or Alive: The Reaper’s Redemption”. With his lifelong dream finally realized, Charles now plans to continue writing and wishes to help others see their dreams of being an author come true as well.
Troy Pendleton started writing when he was in the seventh grade. Always having an active imagination, he wrote a short story for class that was later printed in the local paper. Setting aside his love of writing and drawing as a teen, he returned to it as a young man and started writing stories and creating comic book characters. Using his children, loved ones and friends as inspiration, Troy went on to create over a hundred characters and stories that he hoped to publish. Always considering himself more of a creator than a writer, Troy spent several years looking for a collaborator. After a couple of failed attempts, he finally teamed up with his friend Charles Little and formed New Legend Books & Comics. Their first venture was the book “Dead or Alive: The Reaper’s Redemption”. Troy plans to continue creating new stories and characters and hopes to help others see their dreams of becoming published authors come true.
