September 29, 2018

Breanne always knew she was different. What she didn't know, was that she was not from this world. She was from a world of monsters, magic, and adventure. Now, she must return to save her homeland, restore the elements, and discover her destiny.

Trent is the author of The Week the Tooth Fairy got Sick (now translated into French and Spanish), The Pictures are Gone book series, and The Galactic Odyssey Science Fiction book series. When he is not writing, he is a teacher, actor, and a member of the local improv troupe. He is married, and the father of two girls who love his stories and keep him busy. He currently lives in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

Meet local author Trent Gillespie and enjoy readings from his latest published work for children. Books for sale! Don’t miss it!
