Maycly is a world everyone longs to experience. But for Iona it has become a fading dream. She was left alone to fend for herself, and after years of searching for her missing family she had all but given up hope. But the Grand Wizard SUL had a plan. This epic three part novel is filled with adventure, trials, love, and epic battles. Will Iona ever find her missing family? Will she discover her true destiny? Is Maycly bound to an existence of Evil for eternity? What will happen to Earth? Only the tales of Hidden Earth will tell. Characters, plants, and animals come life through 70+ illustrations. In addition there are 10 maps, family trees, three teaser recipes from the world of Maycly, and so much more.
Using the pen name J.D. Karns, Janet co-wrote, with her 82 year old father, Charles Young, and published the 5 star historical fiction novel 28 Months of Heaven and Hell.
