This project is dear to my heart. I wrote it as a Bar Mitzvah gift for my friend J. It’s a young adult fantasy/sci-fi/light steampunk novella set partially in Boston and partially… elsewhere.
From the Amazon description:
Fourteen year old Jack Snow is late for baseball practice when a unusual young woman and her brother cross his path. Jack knows answering Calliope and Phineas’s call for help means he won’t make it to practice, but he cannot imagine how far from home he will end up as a result. When a mysterious force draws him through a crack in reality, leaving his two new acquaintances stranded behind, Jack, Phineas, and Calliope must all make their way amongst strangers to find their way home.
At nearly 14,000 words, this short work is only the beginnings of my explorations into this fictional universe. Come along with me, and imagine what could be. It’s my hope that while this was written for a clever teenaged boy, there’s no one who can’t enjoy this story.
