About the Author

Writing has always been my underlying passion in life. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a formal minor in Sociology, as I felt understanding and studying human behavior on both the individual and collective levels would enhance anything and everything that I chose to do in life. Currently, I am a second-year graduate teaching assistant in the Master of Arts in Professional Writing program for English Composition at Kennesaw State University. The desire to write has always been an integral part of who I am, and as my father's health began to decline, I decided it was time to seize the moment. Placing the rough-draft manuscript for book #1 of the Magdalena Gottschalk series in his hands was one of life's most precious moments. I attended a summer literary writer's camp around age twelve. Having cherished every moment of the experience, these childhood influences are found in MALB's many adventures. I have always been an avid reader of books from intense young adult thrillers to light-hearted summer romances. During middle school summers, I used to stay up to the wee hours of the morning reading because I just couldn't put the book down. This basic idea, not being able to put a book down, is the principal I have built upon while composing this middle-grade fantasy thriller series. It has moments of ease, moments of intensity, moments of spiritual exploration, and moments of humor, all the while encapsulating a paranormal and fantastical world. I have strived to collaboratively portray excitement and innocence of coming of age paradigms along with elements of faith woven through the underpinnings. Hope, teamwork, friendship, and embracing differences are realistic components of life that MALB must face. There is a time for sweetness, a time for seriousness, and always a time for kindness and life lessons. M. Gail

Reviews

"I was especially impressed with the strategies Magdalena and her friends use during their adventure and the way the six of them work as a team." - Jack Mangus for Readers' Favorite"The eye-catching cover complements the story and Grant's prose is as charming as ever. The narrative is vivid, the dialogue is clean, and the moderate pace suits the plot well." - Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite"By chapter four the reader is thrown into an action-packed adventure with this group of friends. It was a good story and I think that it could be very well received in the pre-teen age group. If this was available in my 12 year-old son's school library, I'm sure it would be one that he would want to read. I believe that if elementary school librarians gave this series a chance that it would be well received by young readers. I'll be looking to purchase these books for my son." - Deanna Sweeney for Readers' Favorite"First off thanks to goodreads, the author, and publisher for the chance to read this book. I loved this book even more than the first one and can't wait to read more." - M. Ortiz
