The Slug Queen Chronicles
She never believed in fairies... until one set its sights on her little brother. Now, she must risk everything to get him back.

On her twelfth birthday, Cricket Kane uncovers a chilling secret--tooth fairies have stopped collecting single teeth and have resorted to kidnapping children instead. When her brother is taken, the fairy leaves a changeling and a toxic black dust in his place. The dust soon infects the rest of her family, but to her surprise, she's immune!

With the guidance of a mysterious cat, Cricket follows the fairy to a magical land where legendary creatures are real. When Santa himself takes her under his wing, Cricket learns she's the only one who can harness the power of the dust to rescue her brother and the other missing children. But doing so might cost her life.

Can she summon the courage and strength to save her family and herself?

Tying the Leaves
Jamie, a timid Virginia boy, and his three friends time travel seventy years into the future where they are horrified at a barren Earth devastated by climate change and dirty energy pollution. They return to the present and launch an international kids’ crusade to save the planet from the same toxic gases that are threatening the life of Jamie's little sister.

Insisting that the U. S. lead the world in changing the future, Jamie and his close pals team up with a maverick U.S. senator on a controversial environmental bill, fight the fossil fuel industry, and counter Washington backroom politics. But things are often not how they seem, and what the youths experience shocks them all.

This magical realism, cli-fi tale tracks an improbable activist as he and his millions of global followers race against time to beat the forces starting to imperil the human race. This is also a story about the power of sibling love and the discovery of a power much greater than that.

The Science of Santa Claus
Nine-year-old Oliver Winter sees through every fairytale he was ever told. Especially those about Christmas. A logical, methodical, scientific mind like his refuses to believe in the improbable legends of flying reindeer and elves at the North Pole.

But one night in January, when Oliver is amid the post-festive blues a mysterious stranger taps at his attic bedroom window and changes his life forever.

Recruited by Enzo, a top agent of the secret Order of Saint Nicholas Oliver begins to uncover the practical truth behind the folklore. Enzo reveals that his organisation have been using an algorithm to pick candidates for which they leave an inspiring gift. For centuries the Order has sought to encourage children to be the best version of themselves they could be. A doctor, a musician or maybe even… a scientist? Fascinated, Oliver swears to do good all year round – and agrees to monitoring via fantastic wearable tech – essentially the naughty or nice list in real-time - over wi-fi. Oliver’s twelve-month journey of discovery begins and he learns that Christmas is NOT just for Christmas.

But it seems that not all children have the right stuff. When Oliver’s older sister Megan falls under the spell of Arthur MacGregor, she learns of other youngsters whose experience with the Order has gone awry. Believing her little brother to be in danger, she teams up with MacGregor’s band of misfits, bent on exposing the Order of Saint Nick and uncovering truths the world may not be ready to learn.

Can Oliver and Enzo, rescue Megan from MacGregor’s evil influence before a twisting of the Order’s technology, places the entire world in jeopardy?
