New Book, New Look
I'm especially excited for the upcoming release of my fifth book, Fairy Dust Fumble. Not only is this lighthearted novel a bit of a change in pace for me, it looks different.
Check out the smaller size. I love this!
I like this smaller size for smaller hands. It’s perfect for tossing in a beach tote or stuffing in a pool bag.
Twelve-year-old Colton Clutts is looking for a breakthrough. Average as they come, the third-string quarterback on the middle school football team does himself no favors when he agrees to play the part of the fairy in the school play. Clad in tights, wings, and armed with a wand, Colton achieves school-wide fame after he tumbles off the stage during rehearsals.
Things at home aren't much better. Colton's little sister thinks she's a witch. She casts protective spells for Colton because she's convinced he's cursed. But when she stumbles upon a spell that actually works-turning theater-issued glitter into magical fairy dust-things start happening. It begins with crazy slam dunks in gym class, then Colton runs wild in a middle school football game. Just like that, Colt-the-Bolt is born!
For Colton, it's a dream come true. But his sister no longer wants to be a witch. With the varsity coach calling and ESPN proclaiming him a "phenom," the Colt-the-Bolt trend is nothing but a big glittery mess. And now, with the spotlight awaiting him and the fairy dust dwindling, Colt finds himself onstage and completely out of magic tricks.
It's my first go at magical realism, and while it won’t be something I plan on writing regularly, there is a finished sequel—or, spin off I should say—ready to go. As an added bonus, the first chapter of Spellbound (coming 2022) is included at the end.
July 7, is the date, but you can preorder now.
