Tangled Magick is coming in April 2015! It’s the sequel to my award winning children’s book Hapenny Magick!
Here’s what the book is about:
A hapenny should live a simple life, but two years ago Maewyn Bridgepost discovered her magick and saved her village from a troll invasion. Now as an official Protector of the Wedge, Maewyn shares in the responsibility of keeping it’s residents safe.
When her mentor, the wizard Callum, leads a Great Expedition, Maewyn joins, knowing that to be the best protector she can be, she must be familiar with what the world holds beyond her tiny village.
When you are only 3 foot tall, the outside world can be a scary place, and the hapennies soon find themselves knee deep in troll trouble. Captured by a gang of trolls the group is taken to a broken-down castle to be servants to the troll queen, Huldfrejya. Unfortunately, Callum is cast into a deep slumber. It’s up to Maewyn to rescue herself and her friends before they are entangled by a powerful magickal enchantment that will turn them into slaves to the troll queen forever!

The beautiful music was composed by my partner in crime, William Ogmundson. We turned Hapenny Magick into a musical. If you are involved in theater and would like to consider producing it, just email me. I have the script and demo CD available.

Most of you know that I edit books for Spencer Hill Press. At the NESCBWI conference in May of 2013, I met this really cool writer when her manuscript was sent to me for a critique. I instantly fell in the love with the story, and after meeting Wendy, I fell in love with the author too. Check out this really awesome cover that artist Lisa Amowitz designed for Freaks of Nature!
Freaks of Nature
Here’s what the story is about:
The global Ebola-X pandemic of 2022 lasted five months, two weeks and six days before a cure could be found. In its wake, it left a generation of psionic freaks who can turn a single thought into a weapon… or worse.
Fifteen-year-old Devon McWilliams is one of those freaks, but instead of some awesome ability like telekinesis or telepathy, he talks to plants. In other words, Devon rates a big fat zero on the scale of cool psychic abilities. Days after escaping from his psionic detainment facility, the military intercepts him. Regaining consciousness, Devon finds himself restrained aboard a military airship headed toward lifetime incarceration or certain death.
Also aboard this one-way flight to doom are six other psions. One of them, a telepath named Bai Lee, claims to have the means to escape. All the others have to do is convince her that they’re worthy of freedom. This is not good news for Plant Boy. The last thing he wants to do is reveal his useless plant-talking prowess to this kill-you-with-a-thought crew. To complicate matters further, he’s crushing hard on Alya, the lovely healer.
Devon knows he must keep his wits about him if he’s going survive this wild ride. And that’s going to be a tricky thing to do around a determined telepath who seems to have a diabolical agenda all her own.
