Reader Recommendation

"You have that essential je ne sais quoi that it takes to tell a story so mesmerizing you can not stop reading

once started. You are not telling stories to your are taking them with you on your adventures

so that the experience can be shared by all as it happens and not simply replayed like a memory on the

page of a diary!  You are indeed gifted and it is my pleasure to read your books!"

What's New?

Croakies has cracked? How is that possible? This is going to be a nightmare if it spreads into the city. I’ve got to figure out what’s going on before that happens, or Croakies isn’t going to be the only thing that cracks!  

Just when I thought I was starting to hit my stride in this magical artifact librarian gig, everything turns topsy turvy. Several dangerous and toxic artifacts escape from the Powers That Be and one of them lands at Croakies. Because, of course it does. The artifact has cracked Croakies right down the middle and there doesn’t seem to be any way to fix it.

In a desperate and potentially deadly move, my crew and I are going on a quest for magical objects that the resident out-of-the-box thinkers believe might seal the crack.

I have no idea if the items will solve our problem. But I’m desperate enough to give it a try. 

I only hope we all survive to find the cure.


Exciting and full of adventure!

"Cracked Croakies is fantastic. It is entertaining and fun. This book is full of humor, suspense, magic and adventure. The characters are wonderful, quirky and unique. I love this book and highly recommend it and the whole series."
