Trish was divorced when she met Bill. Hillary is a year older than Windslow, who is in a wheelchair. He broke his back in an unfortunate accident. Stepbrother and sister find a magic book that had been hidden away by three wizards who came to Earth to keep the book safe. Of course, the brother and sister team," The Children of the Wind," find the book and two magic wrist bands that transport the pair to the world of Gabendoor each night in their sleep (astro travel). In Gabendoor they team up with the three wizards for their battle against the evil wizard, Fistlock.

The Book of Second Chances

Book 1.

"A great book for young adults,teens, and early chapter readers.A fun book for parents to read with their children. Our book club loved it!"

--Melissa Richards,
Librarian, Queensland Australia

Fistlock, the villain in book 1 has some shadow creatures. They are harmless but annoying. Like the one that lives under your bed or the Tellagain. The tellagain primarily haunts older men and makes them repeat the same stories over and over again. Readers have sent me their own shadow creatures. Click the button to read them. Readers also email me their magic spells. Take a look.
