& only Love can save the world.
Famere, Jennelle, and Camette must decide if they are willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for peace, and their men must decide if they will stand beside them.
While F’ahbay attacks the Wild Lands on all fronts, Famere and Jennelle must save their dying true loves. Camette learns that her true love is still alive, but she must fight an army to reach him.
Mike wants to win a race to the mysterious Foggy Cliffs, but then needs all his wits to save his friendships, his friends, and the town, while avoiding becoming a meal for a half-dozen different hungry critters.
Little Peggy Blaha is missing, and Mike is responsible. Thus, he undertakes a dangerous journey with Anna, Skim and Teddy to the Valley of No Return. To rescue Peggy, Mike has to summon courage he doesn’t think he has and use his wits to get past giant bears and a massive toad.
Geoff hopes his readers will find passion, humor, insight, and excitement in the stories he writes.
Geoff’s passion for nature and wildlife led to his nationally endorsed book Green Essentials, and books Great Apes and African Cats. With more than 20 years of experience working in special education, Geoff uses those insights to write about the adventures of young characters.
Geoff is from St. Paul, Minnesota. He has a degree in biology and assisted in field research with hummingbirds and humpback whales. Geoff has sailed on Lake Pepin, on Lake Superior, in the Caribbean, and as far away as Brisbane, Australia. He can often be found looking for interesting critters, and magic, while swimming, snorkeling, sailing, or walking through woods.
