About Xanadu

Xanadu was created


Joseph Beach

Because writing, acting, and grandchildren are fun!

It is our hope that you will take something of ours to add fun to your lives.

Because children love books where they are acknowledged with pictures and text we have created a number of template stories. See for a full list. We believe these template stories encourage reading and they do not cost $15-$20.

The author’s acting group brought “Santa’s Troubles” to senior centers, church groups, companies, and as fund raisers. Audiences loved the silly, heart-warming humor and it was an alternative to the usual meal and caroling. None of us had acting experience, we all made mistakes, and things invariably went wrong, yet the only scary thing were the reindeer…..


We have kept our prices very low because our goal is more to provide fun than to make money. If you have a worthy cause and your people cannot afford our charges just let us know. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

“The Green Game.” is a twist filled exciting mystery about eco-responsibility, youth, politics, education and intrigue, set in the Greater Twin Cities where the author, Joe Beach lives. The White House, Russian Mafia, the giant oil company United Petro , and a secret group from North Mpls are suspects that the three teenagers and the master detective, The Commander, must confront. Within the story, the call to “green” is real. It is a story that celebrates youth, creativity, and ultimately justice.
