Welcome to Slaying Dragons Press! (formerly The Retreat Box)

Charles D. Fraune, the author of Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know, is the founder of the Slaying Dragons Apostolate and Slaying Dragons Press, dedicated to writing, research, and other work on the topic of spiritual warfare. 

Charles was the founding Theology teacher of Christ the King Catholic High School in Huntersville, NC and was a Theology teacher there for ten years.  In addition, he has taught nearly every grade level, from second grade to adult, including on the college and Diocesan levels.  He spent three semesters in seminary with the Diocese of Raleigh at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Pennsylvania.  This completed a nine-year discernment of the priesthood and religious life after which he discerned that Our Lord was not calling him to the priesthood.  

He has a Master of Arts in Theology from the Christendom College Graduate School, as well as an Advanced Apostolic Catechetical Diploma.  His enjoyment of writing began over twenty years ago, and finally culminated in his first completed book, Come Away By Yourselves, a guide to prayer for busy Catholics.  In addition to this, he has been working on books related to various aspects of the Catholic Faith, and to the powerful story of his return to the Catholic Faith after a time struggling with illness and depression.  

His major work is currently Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know, a very popular book being sold internationally in three languages, despite the fact that it is self-published.  Available on Amazon and on his own website here.

He also wrote a popular spiritual warfare manual for youth, young adults, and their parents, called Swords and Shadows: Navigating Youth Amidst the Wiles of SatanAvailable on Amazon and on his own website here.

He has completed the spiritual warfare manual, study guide and companion book to Slaying Dragons called Slaying Dragons - Prepare for Battle: Applying the Wisdom of Exorcists to Your Spiritual WarfareAvailable on Amazon and on his own website here.

On March 25th, 2023, he completed the first book written within his full-time work with Slaying Dragons Apostolate, called The Rise of the Occult: What Exorcists & Former Occultists Want You To Know.
