Often figuring out who you are is less about where you’ve been or where you’re going, but more about what you go through to get there.
Nicholas is 19 years old and has just lost his parents in a fire. Furthermore, his father’s business partner, Alexander, takes away Nicholas’s money, business, and house. Nicholas throws away his faith and allows his newfound self-pity to turn away Aemilia, the woman he was never quite clever enough to realize he truly loved.
In the midst of Nicholas’s downward spiral, Alexander hatches a plan to sell Aemilia and her two sisters into slavery. Tirelessly pursued by his unfailing friend, Rufus, Nicholas refinds his faith, rescues his true love, and in the process discovers his purpose in life.
Based on the amazing true story of the man our culture created into Santa Claus, this story has elements of action, adventure, romance, and faith. Don’t read “Santa Claus” and think reindeer and elves. Instead, this novel is based on the true person and his true story. This book appeals to both boys and girls, as well as to both adults and children. Set in the late third century, Nicholas – The Legend Begins brings to life the exciting story of the remarkable person who time has made into such a remarkable legend.

My name is Joe Dodridge and I live in Indiana. My full-time job is a high school teacher. I’ve taught school for 13 years and I was a pastor for 10 years. I’m married and we have two children.
My writing “career” really started in eleventh grade when I wrote that year’s first essay for English. My teacher gave me my rough draft back with over half of it crossed out and told me what I wrote was useless. I went on to get a C on that first paper and it was the beginning of a brutal boot camp experience of learning how to properly write. (split infinitive – it’s OK!)
After countless papers in college and graduate school, my graduate thesis advisor was the daughter of an English professor and a journal editor. So, I went through boot camp 2.0.
In 2007, I started writing a daily devotional online. I bought a website and wrote over 150 devotionals.
Since then, I’ve written a lot of things that haven’t made it out of my computer until July 2017 when I wrote my first book, “A Short and Sweet Introduction to Walt Disney World Resort.” That book came out of my love for Disney World, my love for travel, and my desire to finally get a book written.
