If you haven’t had a chance to read the first two books of the Castle Keeper Series; Book 1- ‘Shadows in the Stone’, and Book 2- ‘Scattered Stones’, she will have them with her as well.  She is also planning to bring book one in her Mystical Series; ‘Beyond the Myst’.  

If you love stories of adventure mixed with magic and romance set in archaic landscapes, you’ll love Diane Lynn McGyver’s Castle Keepers and Mystical epic fantasy series.
