Down the Wishing Well
The first book in the Wishing Well Trilogy
For anyone who has ever wished upon a penny.
Outside the tiny town of Hope’s End sits a long-forgotten wishing well that can make all your wishes come true—that is, if the wishes aren’t stolen by mermaids or woodwoses first. And of course, only if the wish meets the Wish Granters’ criteria. It’s a good thing too, because Kitsy and Teddy McGullen have a lot to wish for. They just ate their last can of food. They live below a tavern in a dreary basement. And their mom is deathly ill.
When the siblings stumble upon the wishing well, Teddy immediately uses his lucky coin to make a wish, but Kitsy is much too practical for such things. She’d rather steal the money at the bottom of the well and use it to buy whatever they need. But when they venture down the wishing well, they discover a lot more than a few old coins. The well is a doorway to the magical land of Lunia, home of the Wish Granters. Now Kitsy and Teddy must trek across this fantastical world full of magical creatures treacherous forests, and haunted labyrinths to deliver their wish and save their mom.
A Seymour Christmas:
A Ghost Story
What's the holidays without a few uninvited guests?
Welcome to 203 Seymour Street. Hardwood floors. A big old turret. A fireplace in every room. And ghosts. Yes, you heard that right—ghosts. And not just any ghosts either. These particular spooks only come out during the month of December. Nothing like ghosts popping out of your presents or a poltergeist tossing the ham around the dining room like a football to ruin Christmas. But for twelve-year-old Travis Zolecki living with ghosts isn’t so bad. Sure, there are flickering lights, strange smells, and things have a tendency to move all by themselves, but making friends and dealing with bullies at his new school is much more daunting. However, as December 25th nears, the spirits’ antics go from mischievous to dangerous. Now with the help of his oh-so-perfect sister Katie and his new friends, Travis must undercover what the spirits want or else he might not live to see Christmas morning.

At least until he wakes up to one lurking in the shadows of his own bedroom.
Now Colt and his friends must band together to find a way to stop the monsters and save their neighborhood.
