I'm proud to do a shoutout for friend and fellow author C. Lee McKenzie. Her latest middle-grade novel, SOME VERY MESSY MEDIEVAL MAGIC, is full of imagination and humour. A great read for any reader, young or old. 


By C. Lee McKenzie

Pete’s stuck in medieval England!

Pete and his friend Weasel thought they’d closed the Time Lock. But a young page from medieval times, Peter of Bramwell, goes missing. His absence during a critical moment will forever alter history unless he’s found.

There’s only one solution - fledgling wizard Pete must take the page’s place. Accompanied by Weasel and Fanon, Pete’s alligator familiar, they travel to 1173 England.

But what if the page remains lost - will Pete know what to do when the critical moment arrives? Toss in a grumpy Fanon, the duke’s curious niece, a talking horse, and the Circle of Stones and Pete realizes he’s in over his young wizard head yet again...

  3. Hey Joylene,

    How's it goin', eh? I know, it has been ages since I graced your site with one of my um, must-read comments.

    It's like totally awesome to note Lee's book featured here. Even though I'm beyond late, consider your post shared.

    I think I'm somewhat stuck in Medieval England. Jolly good show.

    Hope all is well with you, Joylene.
