A Treasure's Trove is a compelling fairy tale, suitable for adults and children of all ages, about twelve forest creatures whose mates disappear after being crystallized by a dark dust that blankets the forest every evening. The creatures combine forces with a handsome woodcarver, his beautiful half-elf, half-human wife, and their timid, winged "doth" to save the creatures and restore the dying forest. A sweet and sometimes sad story about friendship and greed, A Treasure's Trove shows how love can be a greater force than fear. Ever poignant, it reminds us to take care of each other and the Earth, and to work together to accomplish our goals.

About the author (2004)

Michael Stadther has been thinking about treasure hunts since he was a boy, digging holes in his grandmother's yard looking for buried treasure. As a teen he read "Masquerade" by Kit Williams and dreamed that one day, he too, would write a story and hide a treasure.

After a successful career in banking software, he decided to put his efforts into creating a international treasure hunt that could engage millions of adults and children alike, providing adventure, fun and opportunity for everyone. He wanted the hunt to be accessible and encourage puzzle-solving, reading and exploring. It took him eight years to work out how to do it.

When he's not painting or dabbling in real estate, Mike studies with world-famous chess grand master Gregory Kaidanov. He also practices the 10-string Baroque guitar.
