The Night of the Solstice/Heart of Valor
The Night of the Solstice
My first published book, begun in high school, finished in college. Also, my only middle-grade books, for ages 9-11. Four children are recruited by a talking vixen who is the familiar of Morgana Shee, a sorceress who has disappeared. By traveling through the mirrors in Morgana’s house they can reach the Wildworld, where the same house has been transformed into a castle . . . with the sorceress locked in one of the rooms . . . but which?
Heart of Valor
The second book in the trilogy about the adventures of the Hodges-Bradley children. By now, Janie is Morgana’s apprentice, studying to become a sorceress herself, while Alys, against her will, is forced into the role of a sword-wielding hero. Charles is still in love with the mercurial elf Elwyn, and Claudia’s courage is tested along with her ability to talk to animals.
Mirror of Heaven
I’ve gotten so many requests to finish this trilogy with the last book that when I have finished with Vampire Diaries and Strange Fate, I just might write this book about the magical gem called Mirror of Heaven.
