First Mid-Grade novel

The Mystical Wand of Quinta, my first mid-grade novel, is now available through all the usual channels. The delay in publication was the choosing of a cover.  I had three I liked, done by two people, and finally chose the second drawing by my son, Tom, who has done all of my other covers anyway.  I chose his because it shows best the image of the story in the novel: Darren, a 12 year-old, walking down a long, red-sand lined passageway in the Underworld, where he meets a Vampire, determined to use Darren and his new found mystical wand to escape his perpetual captivity in the tunnels of the “Underworld.”
