Video trailer for my upcoming novel. Pretty spiffy.
Here's my super fun, kid friendly website at :
Of a few things Andrew was sure. First, his green thumb was totally gone. Second, because it was gone, he was now worse than a drought, or even a plague of locusts. And lastly, he was going to die for it.
Andrew hadn’t really meant to destroy the field of grain in Nookpot, hadn’t meant to risk Ivory’s life by helping her plant flowers at Krot’s gardens. He couldn’t understand why plants now wilted when he touched them. He had become the dreaded, “weedpatch!” The ultimate enemy to his own profession. Or so he thought---until a mishap during his execution places him in the path of the great Orion, where he is told that his organic failings have purpose. Once bestowed with a weapon that increases or diminishes in power according to the number of good people near him at the time, Andrew sets forth to: restore Orion's stolen belt, kill the Shade's evil trees, help a lost prince return to his kingdom, and unite the strength of 100,000 men in order to destroy the power of the darkened star Agrona.
However, the tasks set before Andrew are not easy ones. Encounters with snakemen, Brittlewambers, dragon fireflies, giant centipedes, and mushrooms with moldy attitudes slow his progress, and threaten to take away everything that’s important to him. Time is running out, and Andrew begins to wonder if he will have to face the greatest Leach of light, alone.ANDREW AND THE QUEST OF ORION’S BELT is an 85,000-word YA fantasy adventure novel, that came about from my stargazing fascinations, combined with my quirky imagination, and adventures of living on a farm, in a little town populated with more sagebrush than people.
