Meet & Greet with Lynne Shaner at Blue House Books

May 11 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

An enchanting world is under siege by dark-arts mages, and an unconventional mage-in-training must save it in the new magical novel “Journey to Everland Bay.”
Stop by Blue House Books on Saturday, May 11th to chat with local author Lynne Shaner about her debut novel! “Journey to Everland Bay” is filled with magic, terrifying enemies, heroic journeys, and best of all, dragons! Perfect for fans of Fourth Wing and Eragon!
Lynne will be chatting with readers and signing books from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“A beautifully engaging fantasy teeming with dragons, fae, magic, and the importance of family and friendship. A joy to read from beginning to end!” -Julie Boglisch, author of the Elifer Chronicles, the Requiem of Stones series
Jemma Avalon is the daughter of a gentle part elf-fae mother and a father with fiery dragon blood, an unusual combination even in the magical world.
Ten years after her mother’s sudden death, Jemma is working at a major museum in DC, where magic is all but outlawed. Her father wants her to assimilate and live without magic, but Jemma is determined to fully embrace her heritage. She longs to return to Everland Bay, the enchanting world where her Grandmother Annalyn lives, and find a way to join the renowned magical research institute there, like the women in her family before her.
An ordinary day at the museum takes an extraordinary turn, rocketing Jemma to an Everland Bay Institute under violent siege, where dark-arts mages threaten everything important to her. She and her companions work feverishly to overturn their foes, knowing that it may already be too late.
Lynne Shaner has been captivated by fantasy, myth, and fairy tales since childhood, when her mother first read “Charlotte’s Web” and The “Wind in the Willows” to her. She lives in Wisconsin close enough to Lake Michigan to walk to the shoreline every day. Shelves overflowing with books line her home, and there is always a knitting project on her needles. Lynne lives with her husband, and Merlin, her small, adorable pup. When not writing, she can be found reading and knitting in her garden, where she grows herbs, flowers and story ideas. Her work has appeared in various literary magazines. She holds a master’s degree in creative writing/fiction from Johns Hopkins. This is her debut novel.
