Write & roll: Game inspires man to write fiction

Fifteen percent of all profits from “Dream Paladin,” by M. Dennis (the the pen name of Michael Flanery of Moody) will go to the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of Flanery’s 8-year-old cousin, Cali Brown of Deer Park.
Dungeons and Dragons is more than a game.
For people like Michael Flanery of Moody, it is a source of literary inspiration. Celebrating the publication of his first novel, he says the D&D world gave him an appreciation for fantasy and the tools to create believable characters.
“My entire high school career was devoted to the paper-and-pen version of D&D,” Flanery said, grinning. “I don’t remember much about those years other than elves, wizards and orcs.”
He stopped playing D&D when he was 17 because he left home to serve in the military. But he didn’t abstain from the fantasy world for long. His adult years found him an avid fan of online role-playing games.
