Most Recent Fan Mail

Hi Tricia,
I wanted to let you know that I ordered and have received my copy of "Zephrum Gates & The 
Mysterious Purple Haze."  I got your first Zephrum Gates book for my granddaughter, but I am taking a peek. I really like it so far... and it has special meaning from meeting you in the Redwoods!
When my granddaughter first saw your Zephrum Gates card, she said "I really like this Gramma."  
Then she wrote a story about a "Mysterious Pond "  and assigned me the illustrator.

wonderful (and helpful to me too).  
I am very happy to find your webpage...and see how you market yourself, with your book, etc...  It's just so imaginative & original... lots of "star quality there."  I wish I had a daughter or sister like you.
Just wanted to share that...and all the best with all that you do.

Synopsis of the New Zephrum Gates Book

What do a greedy goblin, a lovesick Dragon, and a not so helpless girl have in common?  From the moment the floating treasure chest appears above the water, this rollicking fairy tale brings us back to the wonderful world of Zephrum Gates.
Goblins are at work and are doing their best to restore their nefarious leader to ultimate power.  Although Strasidous Rowpe has been reduced to a mere wisp of ether, his malevolent influence continues to inspire Goblins… and threaten Zephrum.
Zephrum is helped by a number of eccentric and magical people at her school, the newly started (Fiddlesticks School for Alternative Thinkers with Unusual Abilities).  There, Zephrum and her friends develop their innate talents, learn circus arts, meet strange magical beings, and end up putting on a lively theatrical show that is “out of this world.”
Although some of the teachers try to use science and earth wisdom to understand the chain of quirky catastrophes that keep happening, they can’t really do much to keep Zephrum and her friends away from perplexing predicaments, strange sightings, and misplaced magic.  Can she escape the dark doom that goblins have created for her?  Can her friends keep her from the clutches of a distraught Dragon?  Will they save the day and thwart the feeble efforts of Strasidous Rowpe… before all is lost?

“Zephrum Gates & The Strange Magical Treasure” will tickle your funny bone and keep you glued to the page as you bounce from one unforgettable event to the next.
