Meet our next Author on the AuthorTakeOver Event

Lizzie Ross grew up in Tulsa, and has lived and taught in Africa, the UK, and New York City, where she lives. Her first book, Kenning Magic, is available on Amazon, and at Lizzie Ross’s website: LizzieRossWriter.com
Kenning Magic, a new novel by Lizzie Ross, tells the story of Noni, who lives in a world where everyone, including infants, can cast magical spells. Everyone, that is, but Noni herself. But she alone can read; she has what her late mother called the ‘Old Knowing’, and this ability is a secret Noni must keep from everyone, including her best friend, Twig.
When magicians from an enemy country steal everyone’s Magic, Noni knows that she is the only one who can help save them. She must use the ‘Old Knowing’ to find the Book of Spells. Only the Book will enable her countrymen to re-learn Magic and have a fighting chance. Meanwhile, dragons have escaped from the ‘Hold’ and are burning dwellings and eating anything that moves. The enemy mages have learned of the Book of Spells and are also searching for it. Noni, with Twig at her side, must use her wits and whatever luck that crosses her path to reach the Book before it’s too late.

Cover

 

In a world molded by commonality, the Bartleby brothers have always found themselves lost, but when a man from The Agency tests their analytical skills it becomes obvious what their function is.
Gibson “Gib” Bartleby is a fourteen-year-old kid with a genius intellect, and he’s smart enough to acknowledge that he might as well be a single-celled organism next to his autistic brother, Jack, who is literally addicted to reading. Struggling to find the place where he and his brother can thrive, or even function for that matter, Gib has become so cynical that he can barely stand himself. When a government agent walks into his brother’s classroom posing questions and riddles that no one should be able to answer, Gib takes the opportunity to show off what he and his brother can do. Whether a twist of fate or something planned from the beginning, Gib and Jack Bartleby become important liaisons to the mysterious government agency trying to stop a serial killer. This 84,000 word novel follows the first person perspective of Gib as he tries to hold the family he has left together for long enough to stop a killer who wants to challenge his brother’s abilities.
