When Aidan and Maggie find a fairy cross while rock-hunting with their grandfather, it’s just an oddity. But when they discover an elf imprisoned in the stone and set him free, they and their grandparents, Nana and Beebop, are attacked by Dark Elves and forced to flee to the magical world of Celahir.
In Celahir, Findecano – the elf the children freed from the fairy cross – leads them on a quest to recover gemstones stolen from the Elven Bow by the Dark Elves. Without the restoration of the gemstones to the Elven Bow, the balance between good and evil in Celahir – and the human world – could tip toward evil.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The Carnelian was the result of a conversation between my grandson Aidan and I while hunting for gemstones in the North Georgia mountains. Aidan, who enjoys playing World of Warcraft, suggested I go home and write a book about elves, magic, and gemstones. I agreed and The Gemstone Chronicles series was born!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Aidan, Maggie, Nana, and Beebop are all based on us! Many of the other characters are named after family members (with names converted to elvish). I took a lot of liberties with the characters, but I tried to stay true to personalities.
