A formula for a suspenseful tale with a twist.
Thirteen-year-old Dodger Dean has a vivid imagination that tends to get him in trouble at times — as in six or seven times a day. So much so that his mother has to beg Uncle Matt to take Dodger for a couple months each summer so she can recover a shred of sanity. But Foster Flat, where Uncle Matt lives, has its own unique characteristics that make for a dangerous combination for a boy like Dodger, who sometimes crosses the line with his imaginative stories of adventure and intrigue.
If you’re a fan of such stories as appeared on The Twilight Zone and those told by writers like Ray Bradbury and Neil Gaiman, you’ll feel right at home in Foster Flat as you journey into the world of a thirteen-year-old with an imagination that often clashes with the real world.

Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal—and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy’s stronghold, and pursues her destiny—to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all—she will need an army behind her...
