Author M. A. Gollaabout this book: When Kyte Webber finds a very real garden gnome, her life will change forever. Gnomes aren't supposed to be real, are they? But Kyte's gnome is in danger of becoming the last ingredient in a witch's magical Mythical potion and she's the only one who can save him! Kyte must save the Mythicals, destroy a witch, and get home in time for supper!

Many years ago, I had written a high fantasy novel (THE LEPRECHAUN CONNECTION) targeted toward adults. I loved the story, but it didn't have the right 'feel' for an adult novel. Around this time, I discovered that I enjoyed writing middle grade novels. I understand the character's voice and motivation at this age. So I started thinking about this adult character's history.

What if I wrote a story about how Kyte Webber first learned about Mythicals?

And GNOME was written . . . and rewritten about five times, until I cut the first third of the story and rewrote the beginning from scratch. Actually, I'm not giving up on the original story; I'm simply cannibalizing parts of it to fit in the Goblin's Apprentice series.

Nothing about this story came easily. This is the third title, the third cover mock-up, and I've already mentioned how many times I rewrote it! But I wouldn't trade the experience for the world.

When I read, I want to be transported to another place, another time. I hope that I'm able to give my readers, children and adults, the same enjoyment of escaping to another world.
