the Back Cover --
Fwendil was never an unusual
child, aside from his forgotten past, and his strange talent for getting
lost. He never dreamt that he would be entrusted with the safety of all
Zemondraya. However, when a malicious rogue dragon steals the magical
Emerald Leaf, he and his friends have no choice but to journey to the
dark and dangerous lands of Franalisp to retrieve it, and prevent its
great power from falling into evil's clutches.
About the Author --
My name is Erin Oliva, I
live with my mother, father, brother, and mini labradoodle, in Los
Angeles, California. My favorite activities are writing, drawing, making
movies, and hanging out with my friends. My favorite color is orchid. I
love animals, even some that other people find creepy, like millipedes.
My favorite animal is the tiger. My favorite food is mint chocolate chip
ice cream, only the green kind. If my life were a story, probably the
most interesting part would be my recovery from brain cancer. The cancer
is gone now, but that experience continues to impact my life. It was a
difficult problem to overcome, but looking back, it was also valuable.
Having cancer taught me to have more patience, and not to lose hope,
even if the odds are against you. My hope for this book is that it will
help to inspire other people, especially children, to imagine, and to
have a great love for the natural balance of the world.
