All the woodland creatures love Mr. Chocolate’s amazing garden, but most of all they look forward to the harvest of his Magic Js. They are sweet and juicy, the best fruit any of them have ever tasted. They are so appealing that they draw the interest of an antelope family, Mr. and Mrs. Little House, who rarely venture into the forest.

When Mr. and Mrs. Little House secretly gorge on the Magic Js, they learn a very important lesson about the benefits of sharing with others.

Genre: Children's, 5-9 years
Pages: 25 pages with illustrations
Mr. Chocolate and the Magic Js is available at eTreasures Publishing and Amazon.


Landon and Broden are brothers. Some days they DO NOT get along very well. They spend most of their time fighting, arguing and plotting ways to get revenge on each other.

Then, strange things start happening…

Noises in their room that are not the cat.

Homework is mysteriously finished.

A broken shoelace repairs all by itself.

Clothes are put in the hamper on their own.
The brothers want to share their weird experiences, but they don’t know if they can trust each other. But when they find out who’s behind all the strange things around the house, they are called to battle.

Battle? Whoa! Right there in the forest by their house! A battle with the most unusual creatures and wildest of beasts. And when the battle turns more dangerous than they imagined, Landon and Broden must face their fears, put their grudges aside and learn how to work together.

The Ifs can be purchased at Amazon.


“Full of plot surprises and fast paced action... very appealing fantasy adventure reading for kids age 8 and up.”

“Gage escaped.”

These are the worst words Broden could hear from his big brother Landon—just one day after they battled alongside Slade’s Ifs and his army of forest beasts.

Sure, the brothers had learned to work together to fight and capture the evil If Gage. But, now, Slade has informed them that Gage has escaped!
Fear and distrust have entered the boys’ world. Why should they help Slade if he can’t keep control of his prisoners? Will they be able to fight against a familiar foe? Plus, Landon has more news…

“Gage has magic.”

What kind of magic? Will he use it against them? As the boys are drawn into yet more adventure with the Ifs, they find out just how powerful, and dangerous, Gage’s magic can be.
