Living your story—and living it well—isn’t always easy.
But it’s always worth it in the end.
We all have a quest. Sometimes it may feel long and arduous. We might get lost a few times. The journey may seem impossible and failure inevitable. But just like Frodo carrying the ring of power to the fires of Mordor, giving up would only bring destruction. We may not all hold the fate of the world in our hands, but we do hold the fate of who we are and who we become. It's hard not to let others tell us we should bend here, twist there, fit in, until we're no longer only bent, but broken.
I want you to know that you matter—every quirk and flaw, even all the bits you don’t like.
I hope everything I write makes you want to live your story to the fullest—to hang on when things seem hopeless, get back up when you fall down, and accept yourself—foibles and all—even when other people don’t.
We are wayfarers traveling through this world, and I want my words to help you find joy along your path.
Twelve-year-old Janie Rutland grudgingly befriends Reggie Rankin—the weird new kid at school—and finally has someone to investigate her curious sightings in the abandoned house next door. When they find there’s an impossible world in danger of total destruction, they face a choice. Do they have what it takes to save it? An eccentric fellowship gathers as they embark on a perilous quest in a race against time and their own fears. Traveling in what can only be described as a pirate hover ship, they’re threatened by monsters and storms, shipwrecks and death. Can they find the answers they need to save Sian—and maybe all worlds?
11-year-old Vincent van Gogh discovers a curious new world through a tunnel on the moor. A mysterious white rabbit introduces Vincent to Alice, and their quest begins—defeat the dreaded Jabberwock before it consumes all of Wonderland. A slithy tove, an ill-tempered caterpillar, and the Cheshire cat meet them along the path as their adventures take them through fields dancing with flowers, tangled forests, and looking-glass pools. But all is not what it seems in Wonderland, and Vincent may not have— and may not want— what it takes to succeed. Destroying the Jabberwock may cost more than he’s willing to give.
