Meet the Author

After reading fantasy for many years, we took up the pen and began writing. Our stories are children’s fantasy tales about travel and discovery. These are not the trips advertised in a colorful adventure brochure. These journeys begin by stepping through a secret door into a gnome world, or using a magnifying glass to slip into a picture. Sometimes worlds merge together in mist, or time overlaps in the darkness of a cave.

In the sunlight, our modest home is not nearly as enchanting as the gnome house of our imagination. The maple and dogwoods in our yard do not have secret doors, at least none that we have discovered. Gnomes sitting in the grass amid the dandelions appear to be simple statuary. But when things are bathed in silky moonlight, when clouds gather and add texture to the sky, or at dusk and dawn when stars are like freckles on the heavens, it is then the shadows and light give delightful hints of things that inspire the imagination.

As any writer will tell you, a story is meant to be shared. We hope you enjoy our books.

This was a cute story that I downloaded randomly because of its wonderful purchase price (free). The story would be a great introduction to chapter books for a young girl. The interaction between the gnomes and pixies is cute, and the budding romances help keep a little girl dreaming of love. I loved how much "history" was packed into the sixty three pages, including the discoveries of the girls' grandfather as the beginning to their adventures. It goes to show that believing in things you can't see can open your eyes to new worlds. Overall, the adventure keeps you interested, and the only down-side would be the abrupt ending to the story.

A cute twist to have the characters think our world is fiction. I love fantasy, I just wish there was a second story to follow this one.

I think this book is really fun to read. If an adult would read it to little children I'm sure they would love it.

I love this book!!!! It so....mystirious. i recomend this book for alllllllll ages (0-whatever the last number is.) It realy touches the heart .and you get in to it on the first two pages.and i have to say the author has a wild imagination, but nothing not for children.you feel alive IN the story once you read it. So, if you dont buy this book, you dont desirve to have: nook, bedroom, cloth,paper,laptop, or even a car. So buy this book OR ELSE.........you shall be poor for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever.......... SO BUY IT A.S.A.P.

This was an outstanding children's book with the right amount of adventure and mystery. It was not too long for a child's attention span and was exciting enough to keep kids interested while reading.

It is ok. I would recomend you try it, but it is a little confusing, and way to detailed, but recomended. It is a good read for ages 11+.

I was not overly joyed to continue this book but, for some reason, this is the book myself and my two year old kept coming back to during our nightly readings.I am glad we continued on until the end because that is where the story had our undivided attention.
