At the Bedford Celtic Heritage Festival last weekend, I met Christine and Ethan Rose, authors of a new book, Rowan of the Wood (Dalton Publishing). They were also vendors at the festival (I intended to purchase one of their magic wands) and as you can see in the photo below, were in great costume. I wish them all the success in the world. Like me, they do school programs, teach writing workshops, and have a very busy book-signing and appearance schedule. On their website you can read an excerpt of the book and learn much more about them. You can find that site here: The first page of their site says:
RELEASE THE MAGIC & FUN!
