Gabe Wrenn is unsettled by his family’s move to the creepy old house on Byrnmor Street. Even more unsettling is the prospect of being the new kid in school on Monday, and the object of everybody’s gawking stares, when all he wants is to be left alone with his sketchpad.
But unsettled can’t begin to describe how Gabe feels when he first stands in The Woods, an old oak grove bordering the park behind his house, and a mysterious voice summons him to “The Door to the East.” It’s a epileptic hallucination for sure, and another sign that his bullying older brother Sam is right: Gabe’s nothing but a brain-damaged freak.
This opinion is not shared by Ellie Yvonne, the impetuous girl next door. With disturbing conviction, Ellie declares that Gabe’s epilepsy makes him special. It could even be the key to unlocking the secret of the Brynmor Witch’s bramble-choked grave at the heart of The Woods.
Into the Mist: Silver Hand is the first book in a two-part fantasy adventure story about an unlikely hero who triumphs over isolation and adversity through friendship and a strange new sense of self-confidence that results when he takes possession of a relic of unknown origins.

My backstory, or what you should know about who I am and what I’m doing.
After more than a decade of running my own public relations and advertising agency, I co-founded an e-learning company called StoriedLearning, Inc. We attracted a world-class management team and board of directors, which included Mike Richardson, president of Dark Horse Comics and Dark Horse Entertainment (production credits include Hellboys 1 & 2, The Mask, Mystery Men, and more).
After StoriedLearning, I worked under Mike’s aegis, writing spec movie concepts, treatments, and scripts for several years before starting work on my two-part Into the Mist novel series, Silver Hand and Bringer of the Dawn.
