Mercy Watts doesn’t believe in ghosts. She might be the only one. When Mercy’s best friend, Ellen, shows up in the middle of the night, shaken and afraid. Mercy starts digging for a truth that might not even exist. Is it a mental illness or has the Missouri drought revealed something that could’ve remained hidden forever?
Some fairies are destined for a quiet life. Matilda Whipplethorn is not one of those fairies. She's already off to a good start with a rebellious streak much larger than her half centimeter height.
On a day Matilda's supposed to be sick in bed, she sneaks out and finds her future deep in the woods surrounding the crumbling mansion she lives in. Humans will decide her fate and she will find out who she really is.
So on a fine summer day, Matilda's adventurous life begins; inside a dog's snout.
A Fairy's Guide to Disaster (Book One)
Tiny fairies. Huge adventure.
Matilda Whipplethorn is about to get what she's always wanted, and it's a bad thing. Being a babysitter isn't much of a dream for the average thirteen-year-old, but Matilda is anything but average. She's half a centimeter tall, invisible to the human eye, and hearing-impaired. Her mother won't let her forget any of that. So for Matilda, adventures are in short supply. Finally agreeing to let Matilda take some responsibility, her mother gives her a list of emergency procedures for babysitting. The only problem; humans aren't on the list.
Minutes into her first job, humans appear in isolated Whipplethorn Manor. They tear her home, the fireplace mantel, right off the wall of Whipplethorn and Matilda's afternoon babysitting job goes long term.
When the mantel ends up on display in an antique mall, the security that Matilda always took for granted is gone. She can lock the doors, but that doesn't keep the kids in or spriggans and the fly-eating phalanx fairies out. Matilda's up for an adventure, if only she could hear it coming.
Fierce Creature (Book Two)
Another day. Another disaster.
After surviving a kidnapping and battling with spriggans, Matilda Whipplethorn finds her life in a suburban human house pretty boring. She's been excluded from school because of her fire-making abilities and her former friends are afraid of her. Salvation comes in the form of a life-threatening illness. Her tutor, Miss Penrose, needs a medication and there's only one place to get it, the spriggans. Matilda heads back to the antique mall to save Miss Penrose even though it just might cost her everything.
A Monster's Paradise (Book Three)
Paris isn’t for lovers. It’s for fighters.
Matilda Whipplethorn thought her mission would be simple. She’d get the cure for Miss Penrose and get out, but nothing is simple in Paris. The fairy revolution is heating up, not cooling down as the Whipplethorns were told. Navigating the city comes with unexpected dangers, blood-thirsty rebels, tyrannical royalists, and monsters of all kinds. The Vermillion clan holds the cure and they’re in hiding. Every time Matilda asks a Parisian fairy about the Vermillion, she becomes their enemy in a city that is now all enemies and no allies. Now time is running out, and Miss Penrose is fading fast. If Matilda doesn’t find the Vermillion, all the trouble will be for nothing.
