Ringing in the New Year with a New Series…

Happy New Year to all my followers and readers, and I wish you the very best in 2017! Now that the holidays are over and it’s back to the grind, I’ve got an awesome announcement I’d love to share with you. After getting traction with The Last Timekeepers time travel series—now having three books under my belt—I decided to take a chance and submit my teen psychic mystery series, Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls to Mirror World Publishing this past fall. On November 17th 2016, I received a contract for publication for Lost and Found, the first book in the series, which targets readers aged 12-17. Lost and Found is slated to be released sometime during the summer of 2017. Woo hoo!

Here’s a glimpse of the series overview:

Imagine a teenager possessing a psychic ability and struggling to cope with this freakish power, all the while trying to lead a normal life. Now, imagine being uprooted and forced to live in a small tourist town where nothing much ever happens. It’s bores-ville from the get-go. Welcome to Fairy Falls. Expect the unexpected…

Set in a small northern cottage community, Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls, speaks to many of the important issues facing teens today. With Fairy Falls as the backdrop that glues the series together, each book is a stand-alone project with a different cast of characters, one of whom possesses a unique psychic, supernatural, or prophetic ability.

Lost and Found, the first of the five-book Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls series, finds the Fairy Falls Animal Shelter in trouble. Money trouble. It’s up to an old calico cat named Whiskey—a shelter cat who has mastered the skill of observation—to find a new pack leader so that their home will be saved. With the help of Nobel, the leader of the shelter dogs, the animals set out to use the ancient skill of telepathy to contact any human who bothers to listen to them. Unfortunately for fifteen-year-old Meagan Walsh, she hears them, loud and clear...

BTWLost and Found is near and dear to my heart and a true labor of love, since I wrote this novel after my experience with working at a local animal shelter as an animal care attendant. Every dog and cat featured in in this story is based on an animal which I cared for or handled in some capacity. This is a novel that truly speaks for the animals!

So there you have it, a sneak peek at the next series I’ll be penning! And don’t worry about me falling behind on The Last Timekeepers series, I’ve already planned and started Book #3 The Last Timekeepers and the Noble Slave, featuring Drake Bailey as the point-of-view character. I guess I’m just gonna have to learn to juggle between these two book series. Wink.

Heads-up: I’ve got my Annual Birthday Goodreads Giveaway happening in February, so I’ll keep you posted. As always, thank you for taking the time to read my blog today. I really appreciate all your input and comments. Cheers and be well!

  5. Sharon--i had a long comment about us being sister writers under the skin because of our love for animals, but I couldn't remember the darn password and by the time I went through all the Google nonsense to get a code my comment disappeared. I'll write it out again on the "big" computer because we have similar ideas about a new series that I know you'll find amusing. Meanwhile, congratulations!
