  1. The Book of Nonsense (Forbidden Books, Vol. I)

    October 8, 2018

    This fast-paced young adult adventure story follows a pair of twins who uncover and attempt to stop a centuries-old plot to unravel and re-form the world as we know it — through the discovery and use of the Words of Power from the First Tongue, the language that is rumored to have brought the universe into being. Reviewers have described it as “a meditation on the power of language” and a “cautionary tale about how the words and ideas contained in books can be warped and used for terrible harm in the wrong hands.” It also is a “celebration of the way those same words have potential to do great things in the right hands.” The book is currently being developed for a potential film.
