At BookCon 2017, the annual fan convention launched in 2014 in New York City, Inspire the Muse interviewed author Laura C. Cantu about her middle grade novel, BETWIXTERS: ONCE UPON A TIME.

 

About BETWIXTERS: ONCE UPON A TIME:

A mysterious forest near the cozy town of Herogate is more than what it seems. The Gnarled trees appear to breathe, gloomy storms follow you around, and prowling shadows come to life before your very eyes. The forest is guarded by a strange old man and creatures not of this world. Even the locals never set foot in the bewitched woodlands, and trespassers have a way of turning up dead.

When Noah Walters moves to town with his parents, his father makes Noah promise to never enter those woods; but fate has other plans.

Noah and his new best friends, Ethan and Skye, are chased into the woods by Grucker, a schoolyard bully, and their lives are changed forever. They are forced into the heart of the forest, where they discover a lost fairy who needs their help to find her way back home before it’s too late.

Join Noah and his friends on an epic adventure as they race against time and plunge headfirst into the unknown. They are challenged with secrets to keep, a dangerous mission to accomplish, and a test of courage that will bring them face-to-face with magical creatures they thought only existed in fairy tales.
