Greetings, young chess fans everywhere!
My upcoming middle-grade fantasy, The Princess, the Knight, and the Lost God, was written
to fill the gap of "chess fiction" for kids, and to share a tale that needs to be told.
In ancient days, the Roman god Mars fell in love with and married the chess goddess Caissa.
This is the story of their twelve-year old daughter, Princess Kassie, and her unexpected journey from the realm of Chess Mountain to Earth. where she must disguise herself as a mortal student to escape a war and complete an important mission to become a goddess. But humans surprise her. The lessons she learns from the mortal students in her NYC classroom will ultimately change the course of chess for children on Earth forever.
Many thanks to the midsouth chapter of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators. Without their guidance and the writerly friends I have made along the way, the road to finishing my novel would have been insurmountable.
Stay tuned for my blog and information about my mailing list so that you can be updated on my book's release and other upcoming events!
