(KEEPER OF THE KEYS CHRONICLES)
A cursed traffic light. A rip in the fabric of the world. A possum sorcerer injured on a quest for revenge.
Kai and Ellie embark on a journey to return the sorcerer to his home. Entangled in events that could destroy the world, Kai must choose whether to accept the role he was born to play, but isn’t sure he wants.

They both deadpanned him for a second, then started laughing. “Come on, man, we’re just messing.”
“I’m Andrew,” continued the first one, who Kai thought might be slightly taller than the other one.
“And I’m Angelo. Our parents apparently had his name all picked out, nice, normal, Andrew. Then found out I’d hitched a ride on the same, you know, umbilical cord or whatever.”
“That’s stupid, Jello, all babies have their own umbilical cord, we just were born at the same time, well, me first.”
“Yeah, see, he has to even, like, lord that over me, he gets the normal name, I get nicknamed after weird brightly colored snacks, right, Drew?”
Kai couldn’t help but feel better at this routine between the brothers. “I’m Kai.”
“Kai short for…”
“Nothing, just Kai. It’s Welsh, like my dad.”
Jello put on a mock pout. “He has a normal name, you have a cool name, I’m stuck with stupid Jello.”
“Not yet you’re not!” Drew grabbed what appeared to be a cup of actual Jello from his pocket, peeled off the top and started chasing his brother around with it.
“Meet your roommates,” William sounded amused. “I’ll leave you three to, er, get acquainted.” He ducked out hastily as Drew tackled Jello and began to try to force feed him.
“Help! Help! Murder!” Jello twisted and writhed and wouldn’t hold still. Sebastian barked in a reproving tone and danced in place.
Finally Drew just gave up, and no Jello, person or snack, was actually harmed in the process. Panting and disheveled, the brothers noticed Kai still standing there.
Once upon a time there was a little girl who read a book and thought, one day, I’ll find another world. Many years later, after a near death experience at a traffic light, she passed a possum dying on the side of the road. She stopped, and with its dying breaths, the possum imparted a tale so wondrously strange, she drove home realizing the new world she’d been searching for was right there all along. So she embarked on a quest of mythic proportions, traveled far and wide to the farthest corners of this world to uncover its secrets. Now she’s bringing the story to you.
Between chasing chickens off the porch and raising her son, A.E. Howard tells tales of the three Realms, and the boy who changed it all.
Rave Reviews To The Beginning of a Spectacular Series!
“Great adult reading in the tradition of Madeleine L’Engle and her A Wrinkle in Time series and Austin Family Chronicles.” -Elizabeth Munzert, blogger
“Evokes memories of epic adventure tales and magic realms we pretend not to imagine as adults… The story makes us think about the reality of the world in the way a good Sci-Fi book does while providing comic relief though a self important, naked Opossum.” -Kate Tagai, blogger
I myself cannot WAIT to read this book. What drew me in was the beautiful cover! I love the design, and yes…I am guilty of judging a book by its cover at times. The story itself sounds amazing and so very different from what’s popular in the mainstream era of all things books. I love that…something new and genuine.
