truthHow could a modern day girl like Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? Even with her own vivid imagination, the place for other realms belonged in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thought, until she stumbled across a hidden curio shop and an even stranger shopkeeper. He gives her a gift that resembles an antique snow dome, but this is not an ordinary globe. The world Charlotte has always known disappears as she’s spirited away into a mystical land.

“This book has everything a bestseller should have: compelling story, endearing characters, vivid descriptions, genuine emotions, and a lot of surprising twists and turns. This is a story about a friendship that transcends race, gender, age, and even realms, between Charlotte, a ten-year-old girl, and Elderfield, a teenage elf. I strongly recommend it.”




Elderfield accepts a Gateway into another realm in a desperate bid to protect the human child, Charlotte, from the Dark Druid. His good intentions go horribly wrong, threatening the destruction of all his people and condemning the Truth Teller to a life she can never escape.

“I love the voice in this novel. Charlotte is a modern, human girl from England, and I just really like her thoughts and expressions.”
Author note:  I became an epic fantasy fan at the age of about twelve when I discovered the Terry Brooks classic Shannara series, but my real inspiration came from working with children as a volunteer. I helped fun a Brownie pack or some years as a member of Girl Guiding UK. The result, an epic fantasy story that can be enjoyed by children as well as adults.
