My dear friend Barb has had her second book, Whistle Bright Magic, published, and it comes out today!

It's a fairy story in at least two ways -- the obvious way is that there are fairies in it, but it's also the story of a mother who stays at home with her kids, writes a book in her spare time, and it gets snapped up by Harper Collins. I'm sure she'd disagree with the term "snapped up", because there was a lot of hard work involved, but her friends like to see it as a modern day miracle in a good way, and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving author or person.

If you have young readers (8-12) in your life, check it out. It's a sweet story with a little magic, a lot of interesting characters, and a happy ending, which, when you think about it, is probably just like your life. I will confess that I got a little teary reading it because it was so well done and tender.

Available everywhere, starting today...


  1. Thank You, Betsy, for the nice nod! You make me feel all special.

  2. What a great story - parallels Ms. Rowling to a tee. If you want to check out a fantasy series for the same age group, look here:
