My first published book was released on March 21, 2013. I’m so excited. It’s a chapter book for young readers aged seven to nine. It was written during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) 2012 for my grand niece, Emery’s seventh birthday.
The story begins as seven year old, Princess Emery searches for her cats in the isolated back hallways of the castle. Investigating a strange light at the bottom of the tower stairs, she unexpectedly finds herself in the room of “forgotten characters”. With the help of a pirate, a ballerina, a circus ringmaster and a dragon, Emery must discover how to help each of her new friends return to their stories while discovering her own story’s ending.
The Light at the Bottom of the Stairs is part of the Thisseldar series. However, it is a stand-alone story. Thisseldar books do not need to be read in order. The stories tell the adventures of Princess Emery, Prince Ryan, who live in the imaginary Kingdom of Thisseldar.
