Bruce's grandpa, the oldest butterfly and village patriarch, leaves home to find the fabled Butterfly Paradise. Bruce's father escorts him, suspecting this "paradise" might be something else altogether.

Meanwhile, in the village, dissention arises over the new methods for harvesting and sharing nectar. When Bruce's uncle hires wasps to control the unhappy butterflies, Bruce and his mother endorse rebellion. Without Dad and Grandpa, though, they cannot prevail.

​Bruce gathers his friends to help and hurries to Butterfly Paradise. There, he is stunned to discover his relatives are prisoners. Worse, Grandpa is sick, and Bruce must find a way to rescue his family before it is too late.

This is the fifth book in the adventure series that began with Bruce and the Road to Courage.

About the Author

I always wanted to be an author, yet it took me many years to finally begin. I was able to retire early, and after moving to Arizona, I discovered the sport of pickleball. I looked for a book that would teach me to play better, but there weren't many. Instead, I started taking notes and eventually realized I was writing the book I'd been looking for. The Art of Pickleball was published in 2005, and its success led me to think seriously about writing fiction -- the writing I'd always wanted to do.

In 2011, I started my own publishing company, Two Cats Press, and published the first of my children's books, a heroic fantasy called Bruce and the Road to Courage. That novel was followed by three more in the series, with another to come. I'm currently working on a young adult fantasy series involving technology and magic, multiple worlds, and creatures you only thought were mythological.

I live with my own hero (husband) of many years. Our three sons are grown and married, and three wonderful grandsons have arrived. We share our home with two dogs, Chelsea and Willow, one cat, Bellatrix, and a bearded dragon (as yet unnamed).

When I'm not writing, you might find me walking the dogs, singing or playing music, or sitting with a book in hand.
