the wayward owl
Live a life worth writing
There are a few simple rules Daniel follows.
Rule One: never let an adult see your weakness. Daniel made that mistake and look where he ended up—summer camp.
Rule Two: never make fun of the person who feeds you, unless you like Miss Gunderson’s peppery pancakes and green hamburgers.
Rule Three: stay away from girls who love Glitter Ponies. They have cooties, after all.
And Rule Four: never, ever lose your magic pencil.
But Daniel has broken all of his own rules. Now he’s stuck and starving at Camp Bigfoot with the school bully as his bunkmate and an ooey-gooey girl who won’t leave him alone. If all of that wasn’t bad enough, his prized possession, a pencil that brings his drawings to life, has gone missing and wacky creatures are popping up all over camp.
Can Daniel survive Camp Bigfoot and find his magic pencil before it’s too late?
Camp, bad food, and spiders -- The most dreaded things in a youngster's life. Luckily Daniel has his friend Annie, some yummy Pi-zzabots, and his magic pencil to help him survive. Until, the pencil goes missing. In this book, we go on a grand adventure to find the pencil, escape Bigfoot, befriend aliens, and overcome all the adolescent challenges presented when one goes to camp.
Author, S.J. Henderson, proves once again that she knows kids and big kids alike. DANIEL THE CAMP-ER is a must read for all who loved DANIEL THE DRAW-ER.
A couple of months ago, I announced that my debut novel FABLED would be published in May. There have been many long nights since working out the details, and the day is quickly approaching when my precious (insert Gollum-like voice here) will be available. But I'll save the publication details for later because we both know why you're here -- THE COVER!
Many thanks to the lovely Carrie Butler fromForward Authority for all her attention to detail and for making this a very fun experience. Psst... if you need a cover, I highly recommend her. ;)
FABLED is available for pre-order on Kindle here. Paperback and hardback copies will be available May, 5th 2015. Follow on Facebook and/or Twitter for updates. Until then, feel free to add it to your "to-read" list on Goodreads.
Rowena thinks the Grimm’s infamous podcasts are simply another teen fad until she finds herself trapped in a land of nightmarish storybook characters. She tries desperately to flee Mezzanine and return home, but Dresdem, Mezzanine’s wicked monarch, plans to use Rowena’s access to her world to bring dark magic and absolute rule into Georgia and beyond.
But when Rowena’s dear friend Madeline falls into Dresdem’s grasp, her battle with him becomes war, and all hopes of home are temporarily thwarted. With the help of an invisible hero, a beast, and an owl, she sets out to free Madeline from a deadening sleep. But Rowena must become her own hero when she finds herself bound by the kingdom’s darkest family. She must make the ultimate choice – align herself with her enemies or live on the run forever.
Not all fairy tales are friendly.
