unnamedAnd so the holiday shopping season begins!

My book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, is the perfect gift for people who love mystery, adventure, and New York City. It’s now available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your favorite independent bookstores. It is appropriate for adult readers and for young readers who are 9 and older. (If the young people in your life have read Harry Potter books, this one will be just fine for them in terms of reading level and themes.)

Thirteen-year-old Emerson Page wants to know what happened to her mother, Nora, a world-renowned anthropologist well-known for her research on ancient cultures and languages. Five years ago, Nora was found on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said the NYPD. “It’s as if she just fell asleep on the steps of the museum and never woke up.” Eventually, the police gave up their search for answers. But Emerson didn’t.

Her journey to discover the answers about her mother’s mysterious death takes her deep below the streets of New York City on a dangerous adventure into a magical world of books. There, she learns the stunning truth about her mother and her own destiny to continue her mother’s legacy.
Time is running out. An alarming threat looms large and too close to home. With the very existence of human imagination at stake, can Emerson find the strength to fulfill her mother’s final wish before it’s too late?

READERS’ FAVORITE 5-STAR REVIEW – “A big, imaginative, and beautiful coming of age tale that begs for a sequel. Able to win my heart from the very beginning with a powerful hook. A fascinating story deftly told, a tale of courage and a gritty investigation. A radiant adventure that is captivating and mystifying. The young heroine is brilliant and inspiring, curious and bold, strong and vulnerable, loving and powerful. A story that will enthrall both young adult readers and adults with powerful themes seamlessly woven into its fabric. It is all go, all the way through. A masterpiece. This story pulled me in deep, and there was no letting go until the last page. I hope that this is the first of many.”
