A Great Summer Read: Mary Baker and The Eye of the Tiger
A new Children’s Fiction that will endear you to four best friends, a substitute parent, a whole school of magic and an adorable white cockatoo named Busby.
Your heart will never forget this book.
Mary Baker isn’t happy. She’s bullied by a mother who hates her and her mother’s boyfriend, a redneck plumber with a big gut. It’s only the mysterious surprises that keep happening to her that make her life fun. Or interesting. Like the anonymous gifts that come in the mail or the flocks of black birds that follow her. Then one day, a death and a mysterious, magical stone with symbols on it, called The Eye of the Tiger, bring her great wealth and a new life attending a school of white magic.
This sometimes amusing adventure includes a spell that hits the wrong person with funny results, and real spells with powerful consequences.
All is going well until a hooded figure steals the stone. Now, her riches in jeopardy, Mary and her friends soon find themselves in real danger as they come up against a young woman who can’t decide if she’s evil or good and a truly evil wizard, who just wants the stone for the wealth it will bring.
Targeted Age Group: Ages 5 to adult.
Book Price: 99 cents through the summer only. A Great Summer Read!
How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Fantasy is a wide-open genre for letting one’s imagination run wild. There are no restrictions, except, perhaps, that it should never be boring. I never find fantasy fiction boring.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing. Don’t stop.
D.M. Cherubim was born in Duluth, Minnesota, a twin city on the shores of the mighty Lake Superior. Cherubim was an award-winning political, government and environmental journalist for two decades. Cherubim’s stories ranged from interviews with U.S. presidents to Disneyland tourists dressed like Mickey Mouse. In 2003, she became very ill. In 2005, after “redlining” in a hospital bed, she had an experience of God in a bright light. When she returned to her body, she felt a new purpose for being here. Doctors at the time gave Cherubim less than three months to live. Since then, Cherubim has had a miraculous recovery. Now that she can walk and talk again, Cherubim has been working on her books from some of the most inspiring and spiritual places in the world, including southern California, Hawaii, and now, south Florida.
