Paige and her joyful Aunt Glo have learned that the home they inherited comes with a magical library. They put together a book club group of loveable kooks to explore the magic. They’ve recovered from their first book journey, and they all agree on their next book which takes place on a cruise ship bound for Hawaii. Problem is, they were so excited about the cruising idea that they didn’t read the entire blurb on the back of the book. (“It was entirely too long,” explains Zell.) Once on the ship, they meet a charming and likeable man who blends seamlessly into their motley group. Too bad they don’t know why he’s so scarce during the day but shows up to join them every evening for dinner, drinks, and a show. When a dead body shows up on board, their new friend is labeled a suspect. Can they help him out by finding the real murderer? Or is he the real murderer? The book club will need to solve the case to get off the ship, out of the book, and back to their home.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always been interested in stories that explored fate and destiny. Why we are who we are and if there is any choice in that. Wishless started out as an idea for a picture book that focused on the tooth fairy that just grew into a novel as I started poking at the idea and asking why.
Take a fantastic journey across the Land of MarBryn where the magical metal-horned unicorn tribe from Unimaise was accidentally stranded years ago. After a century, the entire tribe has nearly been decimated by a powerful wizard who collects their horns and hooves to increase his own magic and control over the land. The prophecy that a savior would come along to lead the unicorns back to their home world seems to have turned into a cruel hoax but the least likely candidate steps forward to answer the call. He has no metal and he has no magic and that seems to spell only doom but the tribe has no choice other than to trust that he will be the one to save them all.
