This was such a fun series to write. Sometimes I want to pick it up again and continue the story, but I have so many other projects on the back burner that my head is spinning. Maybe one day I will begin another series for Middle graders/preteens again. All my MG/PT/YA books have life lessons as do my children’s books. There is never any objectionable situations or language in my wholesome books. Parents feel comfortable with my work and enjoy reading it too!

These books were dedicated to my three grandsons when they were young. They are now in their teens and twenties! Yikes! How time has flown! I hope your middle graders and preteens will love this series as much as my grandsons did. Grab Book 1 now and let the magic begin!

MG/PT/YA books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
