Overview

What if … a girl and her tooth fairy flew away to the realm called Nearandfar and the girl discovered she had more power than the fairies?

Page Truly is on a mission. It won’t be easy. There will be danger. Page will have to be very brave and very smart.
It all happens one night when a sassy tooth fairy brings a borrowed wand and a big attitude to Page’s bedroom. She makes it look like a wand can do anything. That is until Page has to save Nearandfar, and discovers that a magic wand is only as powerful as the gifted one who knows how to unlock its secrets and use it wisely.
Page Truly and The Journey To Nearandfar is a fun adventure for children and adults alike. It touches on the issues of leaving childhood, accepting responsibility, relying on friends, caring for others, and being brave when it seems as if you have no power at all. As it turns out, Nearandfar is not so near but not so far either – if you have a child’s belief in dreams.

Written for ages 7 to 11, this is award-winning author L B Gschwandtner’s first novel for children.

Karen Cantwell
My daughter and I read this book together and we just can't stop talking about it. Page is a spunky young girl who meets the even spunkier tooth fairy, Serenfay and her adorable sidekick, Bag. Of course, humans aren't supposed to see, much less have interactions with tooth fairies, and that's where this adventure begins! When Page and her twin brothers follow Serenfay to the magical kingdom of Nearandfar, the book becomes a real page-turner and funny and wild characters abound. This was a truly
Kim Wiley
Page Truly is a great character, showing young female readers that a girl can indeed be a hero too. From the minute Page gets swept up in her journey, the reader will be carried along with her. The story is fast-moving and exciting, with the scenes of adventure and danger counterbalanced with funny, quirky touches. My favorite character is the hilarious "Bag," who doesn't speak but still manages to convey his opinions through gestures. Gschwandtner has a great gift for description and Nearandfar
Trish Scelfo
What an utterly charming and delightful story! I was hooked from the first page by the beautiful prose and the captivating cast of characters. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Woven throughout the story are Gschwandtner's vivid descriptions of nature and its creatures - real and imagined - so lovingly portrayed. It's obvious that she truly loves the natural world, and she has a gift for bringing it to life on the page. I was transported!

Meet the Author

Hi and thanks for visiting with me.
My work has appeared in various journals and anthologies. I've received awards from the Writer's Digest and the Lorian Hemingway short fiction competitions.
My books, The Naked Gardener, Page Truly and The Journey To Nearandfar, Foxy's Tale (co-authored with Karen Cantwell), Maybelle's Revenge, Shelly's Second Chance, and Megan's New Year are available for Kindle at Amazon.com. Some are also available in print.
I'm an avid kayaker (touring) and grew up fishing in the Florida Keys.
Here's a tidbit of interest. My husband proposed on our first and only date and we were married five weeks later.
I hope you enjoy my books.

    A Truly Magical Journey

    My daughter and I read this book together and we just can't stop talking about it. Page is a spunky young girl who meets the even spunkier tooth fairy, Serenfay and her adorable sidekick, Bag. Of course, humans aren't supposed to see, much less have interactions with tooth fairies, and that's where this adventure begins! When Page and her twin brothers follow Serenfay to the magical kingdom of Nearandfar, the book becomes a real page-turner and funny and wild characters abound. This was a truly magical journey of a children's book and if my daughter's reaction is any indicator, it will soon become a VERY popular book. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Enchanting!

    This is a middle grade novel, but a fun read for all ages. I am anxiously awaiting the continued adventures of Page Truly in the upcoming sequel.

    A delightful choice for young readers: Page is a wonderful heroine!

    Page Truly is a great character, showing young female readers that a girl can indeed be a hero too. From the minute Page gets swept up in her journey, the reader will be carried along with her. The story is fast-moving and exciting, with the scenes of adventure and danger counterbalanced with funny, quirky touches. My favorite character is the hilarious "Bag," who doesn't speak but still manages to convey his opinions through gestures. Gschwandtner has a great gift for description and Nearandfar is a complete and beautifully rendered world. An excellent choice for young readers!
