After reading fantasy for many years, we took up the pen and began writing. Our stories are children’s fantasy tales about travel and discovery. These are not the trips advertised in a colorful adventure brochure. These journeys begin by stepping through a secret door into a gnome world, or using a magnifying glass to slip into a picture. Sometimes worlds merge together in mist, or time overlaps in the darkness of a cave.
In the sunlight, our modest home is not nearly as enchanting as the gnome house of our imagination. The maple and dogwoods in our yard do not have secret doors, at least none that we have discovered. Gnomes sitting in the grass amid the dandelions appear to be simple statuary. But when things are bathed in silky moonlight, when clouds gather and add texture to the sky, or at dusk and dawn when stars are like freckles on the heavens, it is then the shadows and light give delightful hints of things that inspire the imagination.
As any writer will tell you, a story is meant to be shared. We hope you enjoy our books.

I have thought about how I could do this book justice in a review but I’m not sure that I could though I shall try. First of all this is a fantasy tale that should appeal to all ages yet to me it is more the sort of tale parent would great joy from reading to their children. In it we follow Electrum as he travels from his sprite world of silver to the gold realm via the tween world (our world) as he tries to help his charge, the prince of the silver realm. The prince has fallen in love but this is not a love tale but more of an adventure, especially for Trevor who is unfortunately caught in the middle when he is enchanted by accident. The enchantment takes the form of Trevor shrinking each twilight to the size of a sprite. There is much more to this than I could possibly say without giving too much away so I will say no more about the actual story other than it is a must for all fantasy lovers.
