Foxglove’s fiction has been called SPECTACULAR by Rainbow Reviews and UNFORGETTABLE by USA Today!
Foxglove Lee is a former aspiring Broadway Baby who now writes fiction for children, teens and young adults. She tries not to be too theatrical, but her characters often take over. Her debut novel, Tiffany and Tiger’s Eye, is set in the 80s and features an evil doll!

While original in its own right, "The Secret of Dreamland" echoes the cautionary tale of classics such as "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "The Chronicles of Narna: the Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe". Melody Mason doesn't do anything different any other kid raised on video games. Wanting to play all day and all night, getting your hands on a new game, and sneaking to play when the parents are asleep. I certainly did my fair share of that as a kid.
Foxglove Lee illustrates the importance of responsibility and not letting obsession take over. Melody's love of video games above all else is the center of her universe, venturing to the arcade after school and sitting down in front of her TV with her own home gaming system, until she realizes how much her family truly means to her, and the world she lives in. As a parent, I recommend this story to my young children. A contemporary fairy tale.
It is a quick read with short chapters. You don't get a good sense of who the characters are and I was hoping for an element of whimsy in this fantasy/game land. But for a young child, the story will do the trick as a fun, relatable tale.
