Author mixes sorcery, fairies, gnomes, and witchcraft in the new young adult fantasy novel, Jasmine and the Lamps of Spells.
After three children mysteriously vanish from their village, eleven-year-old Jasmine is warned by her father to stay near home. But when she learns that she is targeted as the fourth child, she ignores his wishes and escapes to the dreaded Bantok Forest.
Lost, hungry and frightened in the dark woods, she is befriended by an elfen king, who gives her a powerful lamp to take to her witchlike friend, Maudella. But Maudella is accused of witchcraft and driven from the village. An upset Jasmine sets out to find her and in the process is given the powerful Lamp of Spells for safekeeping--a gift that changes her life forever.
Confronted by giant crows, black hounds, an evil queen and a revengeful king, Jasmine struggles to protect the lamp as she sets out on a quest to save her world from the powerful forces of evil. With a major battle for her kingdom looming, Jasmine must make the difficult choice of what to do.
