SHORT SYNOPSIS OF CHILD OF THE ANCIENTS
A terrifying catastrophe in the past has blocked young Aurie’s memories, and when she inadvertently discovers she has magical powers, she is captured and imprisoned in Prince Kalian’s dungeon. Magic is forbidden in the kingdom and anyone using it is put to death. She escapes with the aid of Armitage Ravenwood, a powerful wizard, and his companion, Seamus Stark, a trained warrior and deserter from the Royal Army. She discovers she is half Eldoran, or High Elf, and half-Ancient, and her mixed bloodline is the catalyst generating her tremendous abilities. Armitage assumes the role as her mentor, over the years honing her powers, all the while concealing from her a dark and shocking secret. She learns of a prophesy, predicted by Armitage over five hundred years ago, that a powerful sorceress of mixed blood would confront the Evil Lord and only one would survive the altercation. Should she fail, Earth and Fey Wild would be thrown into perpetual darkness and evil would prevail. Growing up without family or an identity, Aurie must cope with her insecurities and come to value her gift, and also find the strength and confidence to confront Prince Kalian. Will she fail in her mission or will she succeed?

The Trouble with Mandy is an uplifting story of a young girl searching for her identity and learning to cope with changes happening in her life. The diversion of nurturing an injured eaglet is stimulating but does little to alleviate thirteen year old Mandy Johnson’s anxieties and she continuously feels frustrated and unhappy. Through it all she finds the courage to survive extraordinary odds.
