About the author:
Sue Maynard was born and raised in the rural Canadian village of Creemore, ON (yes, like the beer), but currently hangs her hat in the much bigger metropolis of Mordor...er...Toronto. She is a proud Browncoat, a horror geek girl, and an overall sci-fi nerd. In addition to writing, Sue is a total freak for movies, books, video games, comicons, llamas, paperdolls, willow trees, shiny things, corn, the number 3, and her dorky cats.
EBON BLACK AND THE SEVEN DRYADS is Sue's second book. Her first novel, CARVING THE LIGHT, was originally written for the 2009 NaNoWriMo challenge, but the idea for Ebon was born more from stating aloud one day that she was feeling grouchy, whiny and weepy - and going from there. ;)
Ebon Black and the Seven Dryads
Sue A Maynard
When Ebon Black turns 16 years of age, he will inherit his deceased father's fortune, which will make him The Richest Of Them All. The current holder of that title, Malachite Vert, is determined that Ebon should not live to see that birthday, and hatches a plan to get rid of him. He also happens to be Ebon's stepfather.
Ebon survives the attempt on his life, but loses his memory in the process. He awakens to find that he's been rescued by seven young women known as Dryads, the Keepers of the Trees. They are Joc, Weepy, Cranky, Glitzy, Nerdy, Needy and Pam.
In this new twist on a classic tale, it's a race against the clock as Ebon and the seven Dryads must work together to get Ebon his memory back, teach him the ways of the woods, and return him home in time to claim his rightful place in society.
EBON BLACK AND THE SEVEN DRYADS is suitable for readers young and less-young. It includes an unforgettable cast of characters, some unexpected turns, and a moral for a modern age.
