"Fiction That Travels Jr." Series
For kids who love Junie B. Jones and the Magic Treehouse


This lower middle grade fiction series was born from my passion for engaging and entertaining stories, traveling the world and experiencing new cultures, and encouraging kids to step out of their comfort zones and follow their dreams. The novel is a step-up for 8 to 10-year-old readers who loved chapter books such as “Junie B. Jones” and “ The Magic Treehouse.”

About Book One

What if you could follow your all-time greatest dream only to 

 lose it because of the most annoying twin brother in the world?  
Ten-year-old Maylie Hawthorne is bound and determined Camden will not ruin her incredible summer traveling through Europe and beyond with their famous photographer aunt and spunky grandma.
The first stop is England where a castle and maze, a new British friend, and a lot of weird words await Maylie—but her first item on the itinerary is to learn how to write so she can become an author. However, this goal may be her one-way ticket back home after her writing targets her brother in a spooky story involving a nighttime maze full of monsters. Furthermore, her brother has his own plans, leaving Maylie to wonder if her imagination has actually become a reality.

About Book One

Never underestimate someone’s past.
Her dreams crushed, a young woman returns home and is forever altered by a dark secret concealed seven decades by the elderly woman who lived it.
When her career ends as an event planner in New Orleans, Leah Meyer is forced back to a small Louisiana town within reach of her mother’s control—the last place she wants to be. Settling for a job at a nursing home, Leah clashes with a co-worker and misdirects her frustration on resident Nona Wilson, a sweet elderly woman with a lopsided bun and love of quilting. The incident reveals a dark hidden truth that Nona has never told a soul. She was a Nazi.
One of thousands, even in America, indoctrinated from birth in Hitler’s ideology, Nona is sent from Wisconsin to the cradle of Nazi society in Munich. Among the glittering parties and handsome suitors, she embarks on a quest for truth that leads to treason in the midst of a war like the world has never seen.
Captivated by the extraordinary tale of young love and the dangers wrought by the Second World War, Leah is swept up in the story, leading her present to collide with the past as she traces Nona’s footsteps across Germany and discovers the great extent of how Nona’s faith and sacrifice have inexplicably changed her life.
