Meet Teen Author Marta Stahlfeld at Burien Books on Saturday, June 18, 2011
Seventeen year old Marta Stahlfeld will be signing books on Saturday, June 18, 2011, from 1:30 pm - 3:30 p.m., at Burien Books, in Olde Burien, 824 SW 152nd Street, Burien, WA, 98166. Stahlfeld has just published "Darkwoods," a MS/YA fantasy novel.
Stahlfeld has six books planned for the series, and has finished the first draft of the next book, "Pasadagavra."
"Darkwoods" begins with the death of the foxes' ruling oracle, Scythe, freeing the foxes to leave their home in Darkwoods determined to conquer the world. Standing in their way is Princess Zuryzel of the Wraith Mice, with the ability to fade undetected into the shadows, and her allies among the Squirrel Tribes, Ranger Mice, and River Otters. Like any good epic tale, "Darkwoods" includes battles, romance, and treachery, as well as the individual heroism necessary to defeat evil.
Interested readers can sample the first five chapters of "Darkwoods" at www.DarkwoodsBooks.com.
Stahlfeld plans to be a novelist for her career, but is also interested in teaching. "Sharing with teens and middle-grade kids, whether its through a good book or in a classroom, is something I look forward to doing."
"I want to really encourage kids to read," says Stahlfeld. "Reading opens up the world, and lets you use your imagination. If you don't like fantasy novels like mine, that's fine, there are lots of other books for kids. Just pick one up and start reading!"
Stahlfeld can be contacted at DarkwoodsBooks at AOL.com or on Facebook at the DarkwoodsBooks fan page (http://www.facebook.com/
