is a young adult fiction/fantasy series about the coming of age of a young woman; the metaphoric journey all little girls must take to become adult women.

Welcome to Maagy’s World…

The Maagy Series, set long-ago and far-away in a land of kings and knights, and swords and sorcery, chronicles Princess Melania Abigail Alice Grace’s tumultuous journey from spoiled child to responsible adult. At thirteen, Maagy is just entering the murky waters of adolescence; an all too familiar path for any woman regardless of century, decade, or origin of her birth. However, unlike most other young women, Maagy must take her dead mother’s crown by her eighteenth birthday. Her impetuous nature and fiery temper threaten to derail her success as the future queen.

Growing up without her mother has left Maagy longing for answers her father refuses to give and a festering rage because of it. As a little girl, her tendency to stomp and throw tantrums is an annoyance. As she matures into womanhood, however, her inability to control her temper could literally be her undoing, as she discovers her true lineage with an odd familial connection to Merlin, the greatest wizard of all time.

Maagy’s destiny was sealed centuries before her birth with foreboding incantations and curses spoken out of revenge. A sapphire amulet, glowing rubies, and the Sword of Aradin are her inheritance from the past and are the keys to her future. Through her friendship with a diminutive non-human trouble-maker named Winnsbo, she discovers she must use mystic charms she has inherited to rid the Earth of a powerful malevolent force. Moreover, she must dedicate her life to keeping the magic pure and white, as the magic alone is neither black nor white. It reflects the color of the heart that possesses it.

This is a classic tale of good versus evil, virtue versus immorality, where one young woman must call upon her courage, grit, and guile to defeat the enemy. She must find the magic within to become the warrior, the queen, the most powerful sorceress the world has ever known.

What Our readers have to say


The Maagy series is so beautifully written! The author is able to transport you back to a time I had tucked away in the far corners of my mind. I cannot imagine ever being able to write such a heartwarming, brilliantly detailed series. Thank you for foregoing the “dumbing down “ of our readers! I wish other authors would make the commitment to raise the literacy abilities of all young readers. As for the price, I’d like to point out that people pay a lot more for a fast food outing with much less benefit. Keep writing we’re reading.
