Eileen Hobbsabout this book: This book is about four young cousins who meet up at their grandfather's cabin on the coast of Maine. They discover a cave that, upon entering it, leads them into a walled garden where they meet Gemma and her white wolf, Jumani. They go through several adventures before they are able to go home.
I was inspired to write this by my kids and their cousins when they were young. I would watch them play together and see how their imaginations lead them to many different "worlds". I started the story when they were young (about ten years ago) and finished it this last summer of 2017. The title emerged as I wrote the book and as the story came about.
The hardest part of writing the book was letting go of it to the publisher! It is/was so personal. It is hard to let it go for the world to see and read.
I did some research for the book - about the location and some of the stones and gem stone names used in the book.
I learned that I still love to write and that it is very difficult for me to put myself out there and "promote" my book. I also discovered that I want to keep writing and continue this series through a few more books. I just want kids to enjoy reading them and get lost in them just like I used to when I read at their age. I would love for my readers to communicate with me and let me know what they liked about the book and to send me ideas for other types of characters they would like to "meet".
