Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen

Welcome to a mystic world of witches and shape-shifters, amulets and magic berries, where unlikely friendships persevere across continents, through foreign towns, and into forests thick with thorns, thieves, and horror. Welcome to Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen. 

In this delightful coming-of-age novel, the title character, Libby Frye, embarks on a journey to discover about the truth of her family, their secret magical past, and more importantly, the stunning truth of who she is and who she can become.

This story is a delightful read, rife with details and culture from Germany. The author, J. L, McCreedy, dovetails the story with tales of classic literature from the legendary Brothers Grimm, drawing the reader on a fantastic journey through their homeland and the town of their birth.

The fantasy elements of Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen are sure to delight. For instance, in a story where family trees are real, living things, with long memories and a flair for detail, family takes on a whole new level of meaning.

This novel is sprinkled with splendid insights, woven naturally into the narrative.

"...when your mind is full of ideas, you're never really alone."

"You have a strength about you that gives you courage."

"...sometimes sheer force of will can compensate for what nature doesn't give you."

Order your copy of Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen at amazon. And if you enjoy this first installment, be sure to check out the next two books in the series, Liberty Frye and the Sails of Fate, and Liberty Frye and the Emperor's Tomb.

She holds a B.A. in English and a law degree, freelances as a writer and consultant for charitable organizations, and whenever possible, drags her splendid husband across the globe on ill-planned, shoestring adventures.
