Give the gift of IMAGINATION!

This holiday season, kids will get toys galore!  After the first week some of those toys will be broken, left outside, thrown under the bed, or just plain forgotten about.

If you are like me I am always trying to find a gift, under $10, for stocking stuffers or gifts for nieces, nephews, or grandkids. Why not give them a book.

Something is just not right in old lady Wickware’s seventh grade history class. Weird things are happening and rumors are flying. Students are finding themselves back in time, face to face, with some famous legends and heroes. Word on the street points to Miss Wickware, herself! Is she a witch with magical powers? An alien with a grudge against kids? Or just a sweet old lady with a few tricks up her sleeve?

There are five different stories in The Wickware Sagas.  A few, select, seventh graders will meet William Tell, Francis Scott Key, Molly Pitcher, George Washington, Sybil Ludington, and one will find himself on the Orphan Train!

The million dollar question is how do kids of today end up in centuries gone by, and more to the point, how do they get home?

Print version

Hike Up Devil's Mountain comes in print, audio, and digital

What do you get when one ten-year old boy breaks into the basement of an old abandoned house, that is to be demolished the next day, and finds a mysterious glowing stick? Now add the school bully and his ten-year old brother who also find their way to that basement.  The bully wants that stick!  A fight ensues and that bully is now a toad. 

What you get is a whirlwind adventure of two boys and a toad that have to hike up Devil’s Mountain to find the only person who can help them.

The dangers they meet along the way will keep you turning those pages!  There is a surprise ending you just don’t see coming!

If the special child you are buying for has a kindle, all the above stories come in eBook form.  Stop by my author page and see the other stories I have for the kiddos in your life!


Those holidays will be here before you know it.  
Buy the gift of imagination without leaving the house!
