Summer in the Wyrd Woods

A few years ago, Michelle and I moved north from the Twin Cities to Duluth, since we needed a bigger house after child #3 showed up, and we wanted to be closer to family and the north woods where I grew up. Now our kids run and play in the woods at the cabin just as I did (one of my favorite activities was making bows and stalking through the boreal forest, imagining I was Robin Hood; as a teen, I retreated to those same woods to write the first professional pieces I published in TSR's Dragon and Dungeon magazines).

Michelle didn't hesitate to adopt Duluth and the North Woods as her own, and it has inspired her creativity as well. One result of this inspiration is Summer in the Wyrd Woods, now available at Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords. The first ebook in the Wyrd Woods series, it tells the story of Sophie, Emma, and Jack as they explore the strange and wondrous Northwoods around their family cabin, full of fantastical creatures and exciting adventures.

The Wyrd Woods is a series of early reader chapter books for lower elementary children. It features chapter lengths, vocabulary, and subjects appropriate for young readers just starting their reading adventures. ”When my kids first started reading — REALLY reading — I had trouble finding really good chapter books for them,” says Michelle. “So I wrote my own for them. Now I’m thrilled to share a really positive and enthralling reading experience with other young children!”
