How far into the hollow would you go?

“After losing her parents in a terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria escapes New York City to Arnn—a farming town with more legends than residents, and a history of witchcraft and secrets best left buried.

Everyone in Arnn knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope when she should be afraid, and a past of missing children and broken promises.  To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness. How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?”

ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW is Jordan Elizabeth’s first novel.  This young adult fantasy, published through Curiosity Quills Press, is now available for purchase.

Jordan Elizabeth, formally Jordan Elizabeth Mierek, can’t get enough of the woods, be it splashing through a stream, sitting beneath an ancient oak, or following a path up a hill.  Some of those adventures have led to abandoned foundations.  Exploring the rocks and crumbling bricks sparked Jordan to imagine who might have lived there before, and that train of thought carried her to a wicked legend and an enchanted hollow.  You can contact Jordan via her website,

THE BOOK OF LIFE - Movie Review

I'm a sucker for an 'ethnic' centered fairytale! So... when my kids asked to see this movie there was no way I would deny them.

Here's the bio from Imdb: Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears.

My Family's Review: Now do you believe there is a 'love triangle' in fairy tales? Well there was one here. I also can say we fell in love with both of the heroes. The movie was visually pleasing. Beautiful, colorful and even had symbolic meanings rather closely tucked within the Mexican culture. As an adult there were a few slow parts, but still captivating. The music was good and the story was fun. My kids (the girls) absolutely loved and gushed over it. My son said, "I liked it okay." My husband - thought it was too much singing (bah-humbug) and me, loved it. We give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
