Editorial Reviews


Readers' Favorite 5 Star Review:
"Chase Tinker takes readers on an exciting adventure and a magical ride. The story is fast paced and the characters - Chase, Andy, Janie, and Persephone - are all real and relatable and kids would love to have the kind of adventure they read about. It's an entertaining book and the author's descriptions are detailed and vivid, helping readers to connect well with the characters and the scenes. The Tinker House will fascinate everyone with its magic, and it is interesting to see how Chase and Andy develop their magical powers. The twist at the end is unexpected, taking readers by surprise. With young heroes, whimsy, evil, and mystery, this book will make readers look forward eagerly to its sequel."

From the Author

Malia's Interview :)

What makes writing this particular genre so special?
It's fantasy and magic and adventure! I have so much fun letting my imagination run wild. And even though my books are MG/Tween Lit, I believe Adults and Young Adults can totally enjoy them, too. I mean, who doesn't love magic, fun, humor, mystery, adventure, secrets, betrayal, murder, fighting, quests, romance, time travel, awesome supernatural characters, and wicked bad guys all in the same series. And since the whole 4 book series is already published, no one has to wait to find out what happens next...

You have so many fun magical rooms in the Tinker house, what's your favorite?
I'd say, the Library. Besides having tons of books, you can conjure up almost anything you want in that room. Plus, it has a pirate ship, a hot air balloon, a tree house, and other fantastic things to have loads of fun with.

Of all your characters, which one would you be least willing to kill off or have die?
Maxwell the ferret. I would never let anything happen to Max. He started out as just the troublemaking pet, but his role has grown until the whole series wouldn't be the same without him.
How much of yourself do you put into your books?
A lot. I gave my main character, Chase Tinker, some of my personality traits, along with his dislike of onions and his terrible math skills. :) Also, as the series goes on, whenever Chase tries his hardest to fix the bad things happening to him and his family, so many times things blow up in his face.That's happened to me way too often in my life, so the anger and frustration he feels are exactly how I've felt. But I had him grow and learn from his troubles and mistakes, too, because that's what life is about, fighting through the storms while continuing to mature and learn and to become a better person.

I also want to add that even though the protagonist is male, the female characters are not wimpy or damsels in distress. Their parts in the story are as important as his.
Night owl, or early bird?
Definitely night owl. I'm so NOT a perky morning person.

Skittles or M&Ms?
M&Ms. The Hershey people were kind enough to monogram them for me. :)

Mexican or Italian food?
Chicken en mole, pizza, tacos, fettuccini! Oooh, I don't think I can pick.

Marvel or DC?
Since I'm a huge Superman/Clark Kent fan, I think DC edges out Marvel.

A common misconception with authors is they are socially inept, how true is this?
I don't know about other authors, but I don't think I'm socially inept. Though, I think it helps that as a Ballroom Dance Instructor, I get to work with other people all the time. So, authors, get out there and mingle! Oh, and dance, too! I think everyone should dance.

If you could jump into any book, and live in that world...which would it be?
Well I'd love to live in the magic house in my Chase Tinker books, but since I can't use that world, then I would pick Harry Potter's world, because it would be so cool to actually have the ability to do real magic. Of course, I'd want to be there after Harry killed Voldemort, since that crazy guy would ruin all the fun.
Does your Chase Tinker Series carry a message?
Yep. Don't give up. No matter what.
