Book Description

Welcome to Storyville, where time stops completely, where you never grow old, and where magic lasts forever....

Alice and Jacky-boy are the best of friends. For a year they embark on fantastic adventures, most born from Jacky-boy's relentless imagination. Though as each season draws to a close, another opens with its own special mystery, revealing timeless, unexpected events even Jack and Alice couldn't have imagined.

Castle Juliet is a timeless tale for all ages, for girls and boys, men and women, the young and the old. It is a story for the child in all of us. It will leave you mystified and enchanted. Most importantly, it will leave you wanting more.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book was inspired by a close friend of mine who showed me the cover of a book with a boy and a girl leaning over a horse corral.  You could just see their back sides.  My friend looked at me and said, "This reminds me of us."  And my head exploded with the idea of a ten year old boy and girl, the best of friends, and the adventures they took throughout the year. I wanted this to be a wholesome, fun read, sort of in the vein of Dandelion Wine.  A great, warm, summer read that just makes you laugh and cry and feel good in all the right ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've forgotten... June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Watch and learn" says Jack to Alice. 'Castle Juliet' might just as well have been called 'Your Guide to Childhood.' If you've forgotten what it was like, this charming novel will help you recall all the beauty, pain, challenges and joys of the growing-up years and the important, if unlikely bonds that can sustain us over a lifetime.

In the magical town of Storyville time is malleable. Tigers and aliens co-exist alongside clockmakers and cowgirls. Here, best friends Jack and Alice explore a world of pink lasers, snowflakes, wizards and a pony named Christmas. Yet they also struggle with the realities of school, bullying and the absence of a parent.

The lure of a mystery entwines the story. It is the ultimate mystery--the meaning of life. In moments of intense presence, Alice and Jack find pathways to deeper wisdom and understanding. The wonders of their imaginary world give way to the even more profound wonders of our existence.

"Do you think we'll always be friends?" says Alice. Oh yes, they will. Because every boy needs his Alice, his true companion, and every girl needs her Jacky-boy--her champion--to surprise her, to build her castles and to help her see the magic.

Format:Kindle Edition
Castle Juliet is a creative triumph! The characters and their adventures are vividly developed. The playful banter between the characters breathe life into my own childhood experiences and thought processes. I can easily read this book again. It's a nice break to read a playful adult book!
