I am beyond thrilled to announce I will be working with ABDO Publishing’s “Spellbound” division on four illustrated children’s books! The IRON ISLAND series follows the historic adventures of Samuel Oliver, a gutsy 13-year-old deep sea diving apprentice. Born into the dangerous family business of salvaging sunken ships, Samuel seeks to prove himself to his father and uncles amidst a backdrop of mystery, suspense and danger.
