Cecily Cicada tells the story of the miraculous life of a special 17-year periodical cicada named Cecily.

“Cecily’s 17 years underground are sweetly described in this book. We read it to our preschool class and they loved that one of her pastimes was throwing fits. The ending sweetly wraps up the point of the cicadas journey as well. Really great for the younger set.” – five star Amazon review

Ten-year-old Francie is looking forward to spending the summer at home in Los Angeles as she always does, hanging out at the ice cream shop and at her best friend’s pool. When her mother drops the news that Francie will instead be spending the summer with her estranged grandmother in a remote mountain town in Colorado, Francie is crushed. Even worse, once she arrives, she begins to suspect that her grandmother is actually a witch. And why is a mountain lion following her? Will Francie survive the summer?

“The book also instills a respect for nature while adding just the right amount of magical realism to make readers wish they could do what Francie and her grandmother can do! This book is engaging for children as well as adults!” – Five Star review on Amazon
