Title: Wellspring of Magic
Page count: 128
Author: Jan Fields


What happens when six creative girls accidentally open a SECRET DOOR to a MAGICAL REALM?
It doesn't take long for adventure—and danger—to find them! Upon arriving in the Realm, eleven-year-old Rachel and her friends learn they are the long-awaited princesses of the Six Kingdoms, and each girl has a unique magical power tied to her creative talents. But the kingdoms are in ruin thanks to an evil force that has drained nearly all of the power from the Wellspring of Magic. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the door between the real world and the Realm is stuck! It can’t be opened again—and the girls can’t go home—until the magic is restored to the Wellspring. Rachel and her friends must work together using their creative abilities, such as dancing, painting, and beading, to channel powers they never knew they had and fight the dark forces threatening to destroy the Realm. Their adventure will bring them face-to-face with gigantic grizzly bears claiming to be their protectors, green-skinned fairy folks, a scaly river dragon, vampire spiders, and killer plants—things none of the girls expected to face during their summer break.
Can they master their new powers in time to turn back the dark forces that want to trap them in the Realm forever?

Creative Girls Enchanted Adventures is a fresh, fun take on fiction for creative girls.

About the author:  Since my first magazine publication in the 1980s, I have been steadily writing for money in some form. Today I have over twenty books in print and still more in the pipeline – books for children and adults. I’ve also written for magazines, educational publishers and even a toy company! Writing is the only thing I’ve ever done really well that didn’t eventually become more like work than fun. 

Although I grew up in the South, I have lived in New England since 1998, when I married the kindest, most wonderful man I had ever met, and he proceeded to haul me all the way to Connecticut. He keeps my life, my computer, and my focus in good order. Together we have one brilliant daughter who has spent 15 years teaching me how little I really did know about parenting (and after I wrote all those parenting articles, tsk tsk tsk). Every day my family shows me again the value of laughing, and taking time for other things besides work… I hope they always will. 

These days, I teach as an instructor for the Institute of Children's Literature and serve as their webmaster. I jump back and forth between being a teacher and a learner every day…and I think that is the best thing anyone can be. I want to learn something new everyday, and find someone I can help with that knowledge, as well.
