Readings

My book, The Co-Walkers, Awakening is a fantasy-adventure for middle graders. It is based on Celtic myths. It is the story of three children (siblings) who embark on an epic quest of survival that takes them to the Faery Realm to learn the truth about their existence and prevent both their worlds from destruction.

I can adapt my readings/presentations to suit the needs of the school. The major themes of my book and that I am prepared to speak about are:

  • the issue of resiliency
  • our vital connection to nature
  • the power within us to create our own story/future
  • The Co-Walker Philosophy
