Jean Angelles, writer and illustrator. He considers himself a citizen of the world. His restless adventurer spirit has led him to visit many countries in the five continents. He calls himself “a pebble that rolls from side to other not to gather moss”. In 1998 he had a meeting that would change his life: In a small pueblo in the countryside of Spain he met Benitez, an enigmatic character who initiated him in the Ordo Templi, a medieval-styled brotherhood that does not have levels, rites, insignias or passwords. Their knights know each other without knowing one another and communicate without using what we call language. In 2000, Jean Angelles, took a series of trips to Spain, Morocco, and India for almost a whole year, in a spiritual quest for his Guardian Angel, which he describes in his book "A Flap of Wings". While in Spain, more specifically in the Montserrat Mountains, that he had the inspiration to write Jack Farrell and the Order of the Temple, his first book of the genre. An investigator of the Military Orders, and specially of the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and of the Temple of Salomon, the Templars, and of the Holy Grail, he decided to bring them together in an instigating book, full of mysteries and action, in which a boy, Jack Farrell, sees himself amidst a plot that will lead him into living great adventures together with his friends Gwen, Will, and Pegasus, his winged horse. In his book Jack Farrell and the Order of the Temple, Jean Angelles brings back the ideals of honor, nobility and courage that ruled the lives of the knights in the middle-ages and are in great lack in today’s World. It sure is a mandatory book for the whole family.
