A House For Molly
The Girl and The Forest
Portals focuses on Jesse Whitestone, a heartbroken widower who is offered a supernatural chance at changing the past and saving his late wife while simultaneously meeting and being attracted to Savannah—a sweet, smart, green-eyed blonde who loves veggie pizza.
The novel explores a question pondered by many: If I could change the past, would I?
For Jesse, the question isn’t rhetorical. His wife, Ellen, drowned in Stillman’s Lake while the couple were celebrating their sixth anniversary. The trauma leads to soul-searching; a struggle to make sense of what strikes Jesse as senseless. Now, three years later, Jesse is given a chance to go back and change the events of that fateful day when he finds himself lured into the portals room, the fantastic, other-worldly domain of Tsor whose identity is, for a time, a mystery. It is in the portals room that Tsor offers Jesse an opportunity to change the past, to undo the worst day of his life by rescuing Ellen.
Is there a God that can be trusted with the grief and pain associated with such inexplicable loss or should Jesse take Tsor up on his offer and seize the opportunity to control his own destiny?
Four cousins find themselves swamp deep in adventure as they seek to solve five riddles in an effort to free a rambunctious Siberian Husky from the evil grasp of Reggie – just one of several teddy-bears-come-to-life that makes Alligator Bay an intriguing and suspense-filled story!
When Cranberry’s recklessness leads to Tyler’s disappearance out in a swamp called Alligator Bay, his attempt to set things right on his own comes to a sudden halt when he finds his way barred by a fierce alligator. It’s only through the help of Harry, a fellow bear steeped in wisdom, that they learn Tyler’s disappearance is the work of Reggie, a renegade bear with a big chip on his shoulder. Reggie presents them with five riddles that must be solved in order to gain Tyler’s freedom.
With Harry leading the way and the help of Ashley and Ethan – the children Harry and Cranbeary belong to, together with their cousins Lindsay and Jimmy – the would-be rescuers join to pit the strength of their combined talents and love for Tyler against the wiles of Reggie and his cohorts.
Written for young readers, Alligator Bay highlights the virtues of perseverance, cooperation, and steadfast love over bitterness and a thirst for revenge.
