About the Author

Who I am & why I love writing…

I was born with an active imagination on a U.S. naval base in Rota, Spain, but I’ve spent most of my life in the shadows of the Wasatch Mountains. I’m bilingual, and have lived all over the world. I’ve got four children; two boys, and two girls, and one enduring wife. While I don’t have any pets that I’m aware of, my children have been known to hide things under my bed.

In my free time I love to read, write, and play games. I enjoy my close friends, and love to make people laugh.

If you’re a fan of books like Percy Jackson, Fable Haven, etc, this book is a must read. I could not put it down! It rivals any young adult book I have read. It was a ton of fun and kept me turning the pages. Just as the title of the book suggests, this story holds a lot of magic! I hope there is a sequel coming!
