Who hasn’t dreamed of going to the moon? That dream for eleven-year-old Leo Gray is about to come true—but he’s in for the surprise of his life!
In the year 2113, most people live in robotically maintained homes, ride around in self-flying cars, and wear ozone-resistant clothes. Most people that is; just not Leo Gray’s parents. They’re stuck in the past, and science know-it-all Leo is completely fed up with his beyond-embarrassing living arrangement with them. But when he enters a rocket-building competition for a chance to attend the Lunar Academy, Leo’s luck finally seems to turn in his favor!
However, it’s not long after stepping foot into his dorm room that Leo discovers the moon’s celebrated city is harboring a world of dark secrets. It’s soon a race against the clock for Leo and his friends Andromeda Groves (a code-hacking whiz from Canada), Pavo Digbi (a history buff from Brazil), and Grus Pinwheel (a musically gifted and comically endearing Aussie) to intercept and foil plans to destroy the city—leaving the group’s leader faced with a decision that no eleven-year-old should ever have to make: save Earth or save himself and the city he fought so hard to reach.
Leo Gray and the Lunar Eclipse is an epic adventure set in a wonderfully imaginative, futuristic world overflowing with robots, anti-gravity sports, superhero-esque suspense, and page after page of laughter and heart that will leave boys and girls equally gripped under its spell!

Ellie’s meddling has consequences she could never have foreseen. This time, she may have gone too far…The Sword of the Spirit works both as a standalone novel and as part of a series.

Circlework is a nurturing and spacious practice that honors the feminine spirit. Developed by Jalaja Bonheim, PhD, it addresses women’s hunger for authenticity and intimacy while also connecting them with their feminine essence. Through a wide range of tools that include not only talking but also movement, touch, and immersion in nature, a space is created that feels equally safe and sacred. Here, women have space to listen deeply, both to their own hearts and souls and to one another. Circlework has also proven its value as an effective peace practice that is being used in the Middle East to unite Jewish and Palestinian women.
Though Jalaja is an award-winning author, none of her previous books reveal the concepts and tools that make Circlework such a magical experience. Until now, the only way to access the secrets of Circlework was to attend her retreats or trainings. Now, for the first time, she explains how ordinary circle gatherings are transformed into true mandalas—fields of sacred presence imbued with love, peace and joy.
The Magic of Circlework includes the stories and voices of many women who are using Circlework to heal their lives and relationships. Inspiring embodiments of feminine power, they have bonded to form a global sisterhood that transcends all national and religious boundaries. Anyone interested in the process of healing and evolution will love their stories of life-altering encounters and awakenings.
Twenty years have passed, and Mandy has helped to raise Laura’s fraternal twins David and Diana. When Laura is suddenly pulled back to Anandria, she must find a way to unite her fractured family. Vaaron is eager to meet his adult children for the very first time – but both are missing.
Diana awakens to find herself the centre of attention in a cult-like gathering. They revere and fear her, and she finds she has to rely upon their High Priest for help.
David opens his eyes to find he’s in a forest with a creature hovering over him. Confused and disoriented, it takes an unsettling act of magic, and the persistence of the creature following him, to lead them into an unusual relationship.
Both siblings eventually discover they are in Anandria – a world they had believed to be a figment of their Aunt Mandy’s imagination – where they must face challenges with their unlikely partners as their guides.
Lucifer is delighted when he lands in Anandria and feels his powers stir. Better still, he discovers that at least one of Laura’s children has come to Anandria, too. And since he still desires the destruction of Laura’s soul, what better way to lure Laura to her death than to use one of her children?
One failed marriage. Two jobs lost. Three maxed out credit cards. “Schex” Schexnaydre was a failure as a lawyer. Until three weeks ago, he had no clients and no cash — no clients except for infamous toxic waste entrepreneur G.G. Guidry, who’s just been murdered, and no cash, except for the $4,452,737 Guidry had stashed with him for safekeeping.
When Schex’s estranged ex-wife, Taylor, is accused of Guidry’s murder, she pleads with Schex to defend her. He refuses, but the more he says no to Taylor, the deeper Schex gets dragged into the fall-out from Guidry’s nefarious schemes, ending up as the target of all those vying to claim Guidry’s millions for themselves.
