Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.
She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.
She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in.
Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.”
Strange noises in the middle of the night lead the little vampire girl Valentina, her friend the ghost, Jerry, and her brother Vlad to investigate. The trio follows the noise to the museum room, where they find an opened sarcophagus, and a mummy wearing a mask.... With full color illustrations, this story comes to life for kids 3-8 years old -- spooky, but in a fun-not-frightening way.
It’s not every day that a witch gets stuck in your chimney, dangling upside down. When Valentina and her newfound friend Jerry play dress-up in the attic, the Whackadoodle Witch comes crashing down the chimney. She claims to be one of the most powerful witches of all time, but even she can’t free herself without a spell book. Just one problem: that spell book was snatched by Meanie Muggers.
¿Una niñita vampira que le tiene miedo a los fantasmas, los monstruos, y la oscuridad? Oh sí. ~ Evolved Publishing te trae el primer libro de la serie "Las Espeluznantes Aventuras de Valentina," de Majanka Verstraete. Con ilustraciones a todo color de la artista Noelle Giffin, es perfecto para niños de 4 a 9 años de edad.
From the moment Valentina started exploring her new home—an ancient, gigantic mansion in the middle of nowhere, filled with dark, unsettling rooms—she’s felt someone watching her. Strange things start to happen all around her: footprints appear in the dust, a disembodied voice sneezes... and just because Valentina is a vampire, doesn’t mean she doesn't get scared like any other little girl.
