About Neversink

Along the Arctic Circle lies a small island called Neversink, home to a colony of odd-looking sea birds including one Lockley J. Puffin. With their oceanfront views and plentiful supply of fish, the auks have few concerns. But all of this is about to change. There is a famine and the king of the Owl Parliament has long had his scheming eyes on the small colony to the north. An insurgence of owls will inevitably destroy life as the auks know it--unless Lockley can do something about it.

About The Vanishing Island

An engrossing fantasy, a high-seas adventure! A boy, enticed by the tales sailors have brought to his port town home, and inspired by the arcane maps his father creates as a cartographer, he is convinced that fame and fortune await him elsewhere. He meets a dying sailor who gives him a hidden message. Cracking the code could lead Bren to a fabled lost treasure that could change his life forever.
