Meet Laurel Decher

Read the books in any order. :) Laurel Decher lives on the outskirts of a mid-sized city in Germany, between a medieval chapel on the St. James’ Way and a boundary marker tree carved with a scary face. It’s a little surprising, since she expected to live in Vermont for the rest of her life. You just never know when adventure will call! TROUBLE WITH PARSNIPS is her first book for young readers (ages 9-12). She writes stories about all things whimsical, vegetable, or musical. In LOST WITH LEEKS, Prince Nero has to find his true North and rescue St. Nicholas before it’s too late. In UNDER PRESSURE WITH A SQUASH: The Multiplication Problem, Princess Saffy and Prince Magellan face test after test to save their beloved dragon.

Meet Cimone O’Byrne

I am an author, a mother, a teacher, and a lover of books. I have wanted to be an author since I was a child of 10, when I won a prize for my masterpiece: Peter the Protractor. Inspired by my triumph, my life aim was to publish a book of my own. Thirty years later and I have published the first book in the Children of the Periapt Series. I have started work on the second book; Who is Kitty Midnight? My aim is to write fantasy novels for children that inspire and spark an interest in the fantasy genre. Many of the books available are lengthy and cumbersome, and for some children who love fantasy, can seem a little intimidating. I want to write books that are accessible for those children. My own son included! I am at the beginning of my journey. Feel free to hop along for the ride.

Or will they be trapped forever in a strange world, working as slaves for Bad Babs Bembridge’s evil empire? Buy now to join the magical world of Merryshields, and find out…

Since she doesn’t have a magical mansion of her own, Jen Jones spends a lot of time writing about mysterious events, fantastic feasts and interesting islands hidden inside ordinary rooms.

Meet Archie Weatherly

Hello there, my friends. Thank you for taking the time to meet me here on this wonderful platform. You can also visit Ji-hoon and Elsa on my website, or should I rather say, “Their website,” and get a copy of Ji-hoon and Elsa’s free activities. www.archieweatherly.com I moved to Illinois with my parents when I was two years old from the United Kingdom. I grew up in Illinois and went on to work as a teacher, lecturer, and parenting life coach. I’m married to a lovely woman and have two wonderful children. I like to cook, fish, play table tennis, and go hiking. My true passion is writing, which I intend to pursue full-time soon. When I was thinking about teaching my own children some life lessons about saying sorry, how to treat others, and diversity, I decided to do it in a fun and straightforward way by incorporating it into a story. Jihoon and Elsa were originally written for my two children. Jihoon and Elsa’s stories positively impacted my kids’ lives, so I decided to share them with every other child to inspire them. Adults will tell you about one or two people who made a significant difference in their lives. My goal is to write books for children that they will remember as adults as ‘books or coloring books that changed their lives.’ Your words have the potential to make a significant difference in the lives of children. When was the last time you encouraged a child or a friend, cheered them up, or let them know they were valued? A few words of encouragement can have a positive impact. May the words in these books inspire children to be their best selves by building their characters in a language they can relate to. I’m sure you’ll appreciate a few unique features in the storybooks and coloring books. Soon you can be expecting more exciting books from Ji-hoon and Elsa. These books are dedicated to every child who deserves to laugh, learn, and be inspired to make a difference. We are going to laugh together. We are going to learn together. We are going to be inspired together. We are going to make a difference together. Your friend Archie www.archieweatherly.com
