Storyteller's Journey

A Great Summer Read!

While I rarely promote my books, it would be remiss of me not to mention The Tale of Willaby Creek - my fantasy novel for children featuring anthropomorphic animals!

It was inspired by the time I spent on Lake Quinault in the Olympic National Forest in Washington State. While staying in our cabin in the woods (which has since been sold) along the shore of the lake, a severe storm hit. That is the premise of my middle grade novel: what would happen to the forest creatures if such event was to occur? 

Here is the flap copy description:

When a violent windstorm strikes an enchanted rain forest many of the woodland creatures of Willaby Creek are stranded, injured, or lost forever to the frenzied force of the tempest. Basil, a black bear full of doubt and fear, becomes the unlikely leader to head the woodland creatures' rescue. He is joined by Daphne, a spunky blue dryad; Oliver, a wise horned owl; Elbert, a noble elk; and a host of other creatures that inhabit the enchanted rain forest.
Dangerous twists and turns in this animal adventure fantasy cause Basil to discover a courage, and a conviction, he never knew he had. The answers to the ancient mysteries in this magical tale emerge in an extraordinary finale under the tall timbers of the hidden hinterland.
