Journey to Tuma: Coming Soon

With the first book of this series off in the hands of an editor, I’m getting pretty excited for it’s release!  (And I guess I better get a writin’ on book #2!)

Our goal date for publication is mid-December, and all indicators point to this as a realistic date. Cover is almost complete as well. The clock is ticking.

An overview of Journey to Tuma:

Being an eleven year old isn’t all fun and games anymore. There are lives to be saved.

Seeing a light shining through the woods on her family’s property, Wendy grabs her explorer’s backpack and takes off to see where it is coming from.  Once in the woods, Wendy trips and loses consciousness.  When she awakes, she finds herself in an unfamiliar place and face to face with Koda, a creature unlike anything Wendy has ever seen.  Though initially frightened, she develops a friendship with Koda and comes to love his world, known as Tuma. After learning that Koda and his people are in danger, Wendy enlists her friends help, and they set out to save the land of Tuma.

Many obstacles face the trio as they learn that Wendy’s father, and his development company, are the reason for Tuma’s environmental dilemma, thus leaving Wendy with some tough, grown up decisions to make.

Follow along for release specials along the way! Journey to Tuma will make a great gift for a young reader,  in the 8-12 year old range. If you know of a classroom that would be interested in a couple donated books, please contact me at

To answer your questions…

Happy Saturday y’all!

I received a couple of questions regarding the short story contest, so I thought I’d clarify here.

  1.  What is the criteria for judging?   ~ Judges will be basing their scores off of:  Plot/Content, Characterization, Spelling/Grammar and the following of guidelines. Each category is worth five points.
  2. Are there any plot specific guidelines?  ~ Not really. As long as the character is between 8-14 and there is reference of a holiday, you are free to write whatever you want!

If you do have other questions~ please let me know at

Now, get writing 🙂
