Enchanted Trees The Complete Series (Books 1-3)
Enchanted Trees Rescue Book 1
Ash, a young treefolk, is playing with her friends when she comes across a lost human named Marta. The young girl is cold, hungry, and alone. Ash can’t leave her there, but she knows nothing about humans or where they’re from. This doesn’t stop her from trying to help Marta anyway. The only thing standing in her way is one of the elder treefolk; Bitteralder.
Enchanted Trees Remedy Book 2
The treefolk call on Marta for help, and there’s no way she would turn them down. This time the lives of the entire treefolk village are at stake. Their desperate situation forces them to come to the one place they fear being exposed: a human town. Marta soon learns that something is draining the life force of the treefolk and several of them are dying.
Enchanted Trees Truce Book 3
Marta returns to the treefolk village with her father, and discovers that everything has changed. She is no longer welcome. Unbeknownst to her, Bitteralder, who never liked her, took over the treefolk village and banned all humans. When Marta arrives, she is captured and imprisoned. It’s up to Ash and her other treefolk friends to help Marta break free. Doing so means they will betray Bitteralder who won’t take that betrayal lightly.
Below is a drawing of Ash running as she plays one of the treeling games. This is one of several images that goes with book one of the trilogy. I removed them from book one because there were no images for books two and three.
Katherine became inspired to write kid’s books after making up numerous engaging stories for her daughter, who was in preschool at the time. She and her daughter, Marta, spent a lot of time together in the car during very long daily commutes to preschool. On the way, Marta would become restless. So, to help pass the time, Katherine began to make up creative stories and tell them to her. Katherine could see that her once bored daughter was now intrigued, engaged, and actively listening. Marta would even ask questions and suggest alternative endings to the stories. These special story times ultimately created a stronger bond between Katherine and her daughter. Katherine enjoyed creating stories so much that she decided to write them down for other children to enjoy.
