Hall of Doors Book Series
My first publisher, Orchard House Press, required lots of "extras" with their books. The intent
was to post them on their website, and to give purchasers a code that would let them access the freebies. So much for good

a bomus short story in the re-issued editions.

In The Secret Door, Sammy feels as though her world has caved in when her
mom has to move to another city to get work. She grasps what may be her last chance to introduce her friend
Kerri to Selena’s world, and the two are off on an exciting adventure to rescue BB and group of homeless refugees.
Their allies include shape-shifting elves who can turn into unicorns, and dragon-hunting, nomadic kizzees, who look
a little like koalas. Both the kizzees and the unicorns are exiles from Princess Selena’s home world,
displaced by The Dark, and parties to an age-old feud, which complicates matters a little.
