Now is the time to grab your copy of my fantasy series book 1: The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1)! I am featured a Kindle Countdown Deal beginning 9/5/22 and ending 9/9/22! Check it out and LET THE ADVENTURES BEGIN!


This is Book 1 of a fantasy series that will have six books in all. In this book learn about the three children of King Gateskin and his wife, Queen Solinara. The children have had powers since they were quite young..

Serena was three years old when she learned of her power to move objects with her mind. Her brother, Simon, can fly and their sister, Catalina, can become invisible or blend into her surroundings. They live with their parents in Sovorotskina, the Land of Light.

With these powers comes responsibility. The children must try to use their powers for the common good and responsibly to help others. The three children befriend a Sprite named Spindle who accompanies them on their adventure. Along the way they meet up with their aunt and uncle, their mother’s brother and his wife, Wizard Hotenfaran and Fairy Procelina. The group must travel into the evil land of Parotovina, Land of Darkness, to save King Gateskin, who was kidnapped, and also rescue some of the descendants of their friends and fellow Sovorotskinans who were captured and taken by the Evil Ones. These descendants have been waiting a long time to be free to return to the villages of their ancestors.

The children have many trials and adventures along the way. Will they be able to rescue their father and fellow Sovorotskinans without endangering their own lives? Will the evil King Kaposkaran and his Queen Beregina stop Serena and her siblings from being successful or will they turn Serena and her siblings to their dark ways?

I wrote this series back in 2010 simultaneously with my historical novel. Jumping back and forth between these two genres was challenging but so much fun! When I got tired of writing fantasy I jumped back to historical. If you haven’t read this book yet now is the time to grab your copy at this special price! You will not be disappointed. It won’t last forever and will go back to its original price of $4.99 on 9/9/22.

Here are what others are saying about this book using promos:

Writing for young adults (YA) is challenging. I try to keep any vulgar language out of the story and no extreme gore, at the same time creating a story that will hold the reader spellbound and turning pages to find out what happens next.

When you begin reading a series, no matter what genre, it is best to begin with book 1 to get into the characters and storyline. Once you finish this book, check out book 2 where the story continues with more adventures, magic, and surprises. I plan to work on book 3 in 2023. These are epic books with book 1 – over 500 pages and book 2 – with over 600 pages.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I hope you will come back again. Don’t forget to pick up your kindle copy at this great price of $1.99 until 9/9/22! Thank you for your kind support of my books and blog. Keep reading and I will keep writing!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
