Overview

Emma and Brody are two normal thirteen year-olds living in the small town of Diamond Falls, West Virginia. When Brody introduces Emma to Mr. M, a famous geologist who lives across the street, they have no idea that their lives are about to dramatically change. Mr. M is preparing his prized rock and mineral collection for display at the state museum. One night, he arrives home after dinner to find his house open and his samples destroyed. Eager to help restore the collection, Emma and Brody offer to find new samples for the aging geologist. Mr. M accepts their offer but little do they know that he is about to send them through a time portal in a crystal cave back to Castleton, Derbyshire, England in 1775, to recover the rare Blue John Fluorite. With the help of a young girl named Max, the kids have to get the fluorite samples without being seen by the gun-carrying soldiers that guard the cave and then find their way back to the present before they are imprisoned forever. This adventure will be a test of their courage and bravery, but also their mystery solving skills as they try to figure out a secret that entwines Mr. M and Max. Trust me when I say this though, it won’t be easy.

Meet the Author

Tracy Barnhart was born and raised in Princeton, West Virginia. She grew up swimming and playing in the band. It wasn’t until her twenties that she realized how much she loved a good story. Tracy attended Furman University (Go Paladins!) planning to be a business major. Since Furman is a liberal arts school she had to take science and chose two geology classes her freshman year, which changed her path. After receiving a Bachelor of Science in geology from Furman she went on to receive a Master of Science degree in geology at the University of South Carolina. (Go Gamecocks!)
Tracy worked as an environmental consultant for many years, and then she took her love of rocks and minerals and turned it into a small business in 2004. Mini Me Geology’s line of rocks, minerals and fossils keep her busy when she is not writing her new Crystal Cave Adventures series. Tracy lives in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina with her husband, two kids and their very large dog, Teddy. When she’s not writing, you can find her at the track and swimming pool for her kids’ practices or maybe the beach on a lucky day. She would love to hear from you. Email Tracy at .
