Everybody's Talking

There is a new author in town. Eleven-year-old Veronica Huston has written her first novel, The Magic of Fairy Falls. From an avid reader to an astonishing writer, Veronica has always specialized in fantasy and mystery. "It gives you more freedom, you can make up anything you want," she comments.

Veronica got the inspiration for The Magic of Fairy Falls the Christmas of 2005, strangely enough while watching King Kong. "I get most of my inspiration from movies, books, pictures, songs, dreams, and life in general," Veronica admits.

The Magic of Fairy Falls was finished in May 2008. It took nearly two years to write!

This enticing story is about a boy named Danny, who unwillingly goes to Fairy Falls for the summer with his parents. Before the train leaves, Danny's dad presents him with a locket. It turns out that both the present and the location have an ancient secret, older than time. That summer changes Danny forever. This story is exciting and never ceases to surprise you.

"This book is an amazing adventure, seen through the eyes of a kid, not what an adult thinks a kid sees," remarked novelist Jaron Summers.

A lifelong resident of Sherman Oaks, Veronica will be attending the Individualized Honors Program at Walter Reed Middle School in September. Veronica likes to draw, write, and read in her spare time, and has written many short stories and poems.

She has always dreamed of becoming an author.

"It really means a lot to me that my dream has finally come true. My dad always said he would get my book published if I would finish it, but I never really believed him. But here my book is," Veronica grins.

Her book is now available on her website, www.veronicasfavorites.com.

She has also recorded an audio-book version for Blue Kiss Media.

And her next three books are already underway..
