New Fantasy: A SMALL HOLIDAY
Carried off to another world to take part in an annual festival, Belinda Bevin must find
a way home for herself and her brother, Jay. But Jay is enjoying the play and its pompous
director, a round yellow blob of self-importance named Parvan, who needs to win the
festival in order to win his way home.
Belinda meets Martin, a handsome young man, and helps him find his living musical reeds
so that he can take part in the festival, as well, but she senses something evil lurking in this
peaceful world, an evil that threatens her as well as Martin and Jay.
Coming in 2017, the latest fantasy novel from Silver Leaf Books, The Monsters of Spiders' Rest.
Flickfoot is a genetically enhanced spider living with his friends Plinks and Jellyroll in their house, Spiders' Rest, and wondering what to do now that their creator, Dr. Vil, has died. When Dr. Vil's grandson arrives to claim the house, Flickfoot has a new set of worries. Will Ty accept the spiders? More importantly, should he know about the other much larger and more dangerous monsters living in the woods?
Madeline's fourth mystery, A Bad Reputation, is now available.
Aside from trying to reform her con man husband, Jerry Fairweather, and find something useful for him to do, Madeline faces new problems in her little Southern town of Celosia, NC. Not only does wealthy Wendall Clarke's plan to open an art gallery set the Art Guild buzzing with jealousy and excitement, Wendall's ex-wife Larissa is furious that Wendall brought along his new and much younger wife, Flora. When Wendall is found murdered, Madeline has plenty of suspects among the local artists, who are at odds over who should be in charge of the new gallery.
