Update of Book 2, Chaos and Light

In a perfect world, childhood is happy and carefree, but life is rarely perfect, as Penelope has discovered. Although she has recovered
from her harrowing ordeal, it is not over by far. She is finding she must leave childhood behind, and behave like an adult, and take on adult responsibilities. She and her Soul Bond, Prudence, and allies Gillian and Rowena, must learn the most dangerous spells in order to defeat Marcus.
They must learn in months what most students took three years or more to learn. However, they do have help, in the form of the redoubtable Hecate, Paddy, Morna, Jacob, Gillian’s mother Sylvania, and Penelope’s father Gwyddion.
In a surprise move, the Lady from the Garden has stepped in to help, something She has rarely done, and she has gifted Penelope and Gillian with magical daggers, which will prevent mortal harm coming to them or their Soul Bonds as long as the daggers are in their possession.

About Susan McCaskill

Susan (or Sue, as she prefers to be called), was born in post war England, and lived there until the age of nine, when she and her mother emigrated to Canada. Her father died when she was nine, and left a huge impression on her. Both her parents encouraged her to read, and learn. She has always believed in fairies and elves, and probably always will, and as a child, she saw things many others didn't, and as a result she was thought to be a little strange.

Sue currently lives on beautiful Vancouver Island with her husband and three demanding cats.

Although she has been in Canada for so many years, she still misses the English and Welsh countryside, and because of this, her novel is based in the ancient, picturesque town of Betws-Y-Coed.

About herself, she says:

"I think I was born a writer, and got more confidence thanks to my grade five teacher, who was wonderful, and fostered my love for writing. I didn't write for almost 40 years, because of raising kids, life happenings, the usual drama. I started again sporadically ten years ago, and finished my first Mid Grade fantasy in 2013. Currently working on book 2.
