TRUTH TELLER captures the innocence of childhood and the essence of real friendship, transcending race, age, and gender, as a young girl discovers real magic and monsters exist beyond her realm.
Ten-year-old Charlotte stumbles upon a strange shop when searching for a present. The creepy shopkeeper gives her an enchanting antique snow dome, but refuses to accept payment except her promise to always tell the truth. She accepts his strange request.
Woken in the night, Charlotte is drawn by the globe’s eerie light and hypnotic power. With a sudden jerk, she finds herself stranded and all alone in a dark forest where she is discovered by a sword-wielding maniac. Elderfield, he calls himself, and he turns out to be a kind and brave elf. He offers to take Charlotte to his family farm on a promise that he will help her find a way home.
They embark on a journey to find out why Charlotte has been brought to this realm and to pursue the one person who might be able to help, but none of them realise just how much is at stake. Strange things start to happen; visions come to her in dreams. They are hunted by monsters that attack with terrifying fury. Despite the odds, she survives the ordeal, but a far greater threat shadows her every move.
Fleeing for their lives, they reach the safety of an ancient mountain fortress and find the shopkeeper who gave Charlotte the dome. Her hopes of returning home are dashed as she is abducted by a druid assassin. She thinks she is defenceless against such a powerful foe, but in this realm, she is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was. Rumours have it that Charlotte is the Truth Teller, an elven folk law legend.
TRUTH TELLER is complete, and the full manuscript is available on request. Although this is part of a series, it can stand alone as a novel.
