Who are the Philo birds singing about? How will their song play out in the lives of these young people? Will it all be for nothing??
Song of the Philo birds:
Twelve companions all will travel
Eleven this song try to unravel
Ten don’t know which is the way
Nine are going to have to pay
Eight are wondering what they will find
Seven speak with mouth and mind
Six shall get a brand new name
Five will never be the same
Four the enemy will take
Three have choices they must make
Two have powers they must use
Or, One friend in death will lose.
In book 1 (Tunuftol's Fortress of Light)...
A young girl, Krissa, and her little brother, Micah, have been pushed around the foster system until they find themselves in the care of "Grandma" Athey. Krissa begins having unusual dreams and her brother knows more than she thinks. Their new friends, Pin, and her twin brother, Khevin, join forces to unravel Krissa's questions. Krissa has become The Chosen One and is drawn into a mission against an evil faction that usurped the throne from Khevin's family. With a group of friends accumulated from school, Krissa learns to control her new found powers and follow her dreams to a world they all fled from as small children. Who keeps the most secrets? Will Krissa know what she must do when the time comes? Will their mission succeed?

You Must Choose Which Way to Go
For thirteen year old Krissa Wittek, getting dumped from one home to another has become a way of life in the nearly six years since the death of her parents. Finding a permanent family for both her and her nine year old brother, Micah, together is nearly impossible, but it’s her only goal in life. That is until she discovers a glowing key in the attic of their eerie new guardian, “Grandma” Athey Boske, triggering events that plunge her into a life of magic along with Pin and Khevin Hillard, Lonnie Gonzales, and Sealey Kemp, her first real friends ever.
Krissa struggles to adjust to the emotions she feels that aren’t her own, to the strange voice that only she can hear, and to the bizarre and violent reactions both she and her glowing key have towards a fellow student, Marc Jebel. Questions pummel her mind as butterflies ravage her stomach. Why does she feel so instantly comfortable around Grandma Athey and Pin after years of guarding herself? What are her dreams trying to tell her? Why does she hate Marc so much? What’s the strange energy she can feel coming from Khevin? And, why is Micah acting so strangely?

What People Are Saying About It
"Tunuftol's Fortress of Light is a wonderfully woven story full of fun, charisma and entertainment," said Jodie Pierce, author of The Vampire Queen. "She writes in a manner that the reader feels like they are right there... She gives you a whole world where you can immerse yourself for awhile. This is a page turner that is hard to put down."
"Must have second book... Already addicted. Great first book." -- Heather Latsch, fan
I grew up in Vermont mostly and now live in Virginia with my family (those still at home). My husband and I have a blended family of seven kids. My childhood was spent moving around a lot. (non-military) About five years ago, we started home-schooling our youngest children. Now there are only two remaining in home-school. I have tried to nurture the love of books in our children and now our grandchildren -- always nurturing their imaginations. Recently, I have become active in our community with literacy, starting a local (and online) creative writing club and volunteer tutoring at the Adult Learning Center.
I struggle with Fibromyalgia and PTSD. So, have to be careful not to overdo things... I don't always listen to my own advice. I have a dry, sarcastic and corny sense of humor and always try to look at things optimistically. (again not always successful) However, I feel that if I don't give up -- for long -- then things will work out for the best eventually.
