From the Author
I originally wrote this book for my son, who has Asperger's Syndrome. I wanted to craft a story that was a fun and entertaining read along the lines of all the other young adult sci-fi/fantasy books that my son and I both enjoyed, while providing a glimpse into what a person on the autism spectrum could possibly be thinking and feeling. Most of all, I wanted to provide kids on the spectrum with a literary hero that they could relate to and gain a sense of coolness and empowerment from - a character that saved the day with his special qualities, not despite them.

Secret of the Songshell is an imaginative adventure for all ages. Joel and Felicity are a dynamic pair, both struggling with social issues and trying to find their places in the world. When they are chosen by their rock star idol Marshall to enter a bizarre world of odd creatures where they will hone their musical skills and learn how to become rock stars themselves, they jump at the opportunity. Things don't turn out quite as they imagined, and they are soon in a race to save the world and themselves.
This was a fun read and I rooted for Joel and Felicity the whole way.
