Keepsake that Educates!

Book/Author Spotlight. Giveaway. Jorie and the Magic Stones. Ends Jan 6th



About the Book: When Marjorie went to live with her frosty maiden aunt, she couldn’t imagine the adventures she would have with dragons — good and bad — and all the strange creatures that live in a mysterious land beneath the Tarn. The spunky 9-year-old redhead forges an unlikely friendship with an insecure young boy named Rufus who lives with his crusty grandfather next door. When Jorie — for that is what she prefers to be called — finds a dusty ancient book about dragons, she learns four strange words that will send the two of them into a mysterious land beneath the Tarn, riddled with enchantment and danger. Hungry for adventure, the children take the plunge, quite literally, and find themselves in the magic land of Cabrynthius.

Upon meeting the good dragon, the Great Grootmonya, Jorie and Rufus are given a quest to find the three Stones of Maalog — stones of enormous power — and return them to their rightful place in Cabrynthius. Their mission is neither easy nor safe, and is peppered with perils in the form of the evil black half-dragon who rules the shadowy side of the land. They have to deal with a wicked and greedy professor, the tragic daughter of the bad dragon, caves of fire, rocky mountainous climbs, and a deadly poisonous butterfly.

Jorie must rely on her wits and courage to win the day? Can she do this? Can she find all three Stones? Can she save Rufus when disaster befalls him? Can she emerge victorious? She and Rufus have some hair-raising challenges, in which they learn valuable lessons about loyalty, bravery, and friendship.

Book Review on Amazon:






About the Author: I have done a little of everything – I was an actress for a few years in England; I have loved horses all my life, and have taught Dressage which I loved. I paint in watercolors, oils and acrylics, I sculpt, and now I write…and have found this last activity wonderful, challenging, sometimes frustrating, but always uplifting – there is something about a spoken word written on a page, that brings one to life. It is creativity lived at the max!
My second book is a slight departure from flying dragons and brave little nine-year olds, titled ‘Murder in Little Shendon’ it pulls you into a tiny little village in England shortly after World War Two, and involves the talents of Sir Victor Hazlitt and his actor sidekick Beresford Brandon, along with a host of delectable characters that I feel the readers will love!
I had enormous fun writing this…however pulling all the strings together at the end is quite challenging. I love the combication of Hazlitt and Brandon, and plan a second murder mystery involving this winsome twosome!
I have written a sequel to my first book ‘Jorie and the Magic Stones’ which will be out soon; this had a very good following, and several people have been looking for further adventures of young Jorie and Rufus.
