A mysterious secret that changed her world forever…
No one wants to play with the creepy cripple who might spread her disease. So, eleven-year-old Lorena’s only friends in the world are Jenkins the tree and Seraphina, a black cat with a white star on her forehead.
Seraphina was not just any black cat. She lived deep in the woods with two piebald ponies and a gypsy woman who healed wild animals, including a white wolf with aqua eyes.
But, Seraphina and the gypsy were keeping a very magical secret. A secret found out by Lorena that changed her world forever.
Review from "Readers Favorite"
Seraﬁna by Denice Garrou is a stunning fantasy children's book about a young girl named Lorena. Lorena has a disease that prevents her from walking without a crutch. The other children in her village tease her, and won't be her friend. All she has is a tree she calls Jenkins, and a cat named Seraﬁna. One day, Seraﬁna leads her to a house in the woods where she meets a woman named Ravinia. Lorena and Ravinia, as well as Seraﬁna, are soon ﬁrm friends, and from that day onward Lorena would always visit Ravinia, with the help of Seraﬁna. But then one day Seraﬁna doesn't show up. Lorena soon discovers that the bullies have Seraﬁna and are planning on burning her. Will Lorena be brave enough to stand up to the bullies who always torment her. I really, really enjoyed reading Seraﬁna by Denice Garrou. The book is heartwarming and is very beautifully written. The story teaches that how you look at yourself is very important and that you can't be happy unless you're happy with yourself, which is a very important lesson. The characters are all very likeable, because Lorena is very kind to others, and Seraﬁna and Ravinia help her to see herself in a new light. The book is very well written and very descriptive. There were a few parts that made me gasp out loud. Many people will be able to relate to this book, because many people have been bullied. The book is full of action and suspense. I was hooked by the ﬁrst page and I never wanted to put the book down. It is truly amazing. I would deﬁnitely recommend this to all readers.

Book 2 of the Dragonhorse Sage takes us back to how it all began. We go back in time to Shion’s life as Sumayah. She is caught in a web of two loves: the mysterious one who is promised to her and the Fae Prince who is trying to save his realm. This tale of love begins in the ancient realm of Lemuria, a realm of unspeakable beauty and magic thought to be only a myth by the human race.
But there is blood on the moon as impending invasion threatens the lives of those who live there. Sumayah soon learns her life is not her own and is thrust into a world of uncertainties and sacrifice.
Follow Sumayah on her legendary and epic journey, as she saves a dying dragon, battles a long-tooth tiger, learns to control her power of fire, becomes a Priestess by gaining the trust of a fiery horse, is torn between two loves, learns the lethal powers of the darkness, and most of all, calls into existence the dragonhorse.

Excerpt from Dragonhorse and Seeker of the Forgotten Knowledge
Those eyes she thought. Empty. Bottomless. She gulped back the emotion as she took in the blanket of bones. The overpowering stench hit her again and she put her hand to her nose. It was quite evident this horse was dying. Large, fleshy protrusions hung from the front limbs of this suffering animal. Its nostrils flared and blew at her trying to figure out if she was friend or foe. Then a low, tired nicker came from deep within as it took a tentative step towards her. She held out her hand and immediately it began to pulsate. The swirl of white energy lifted from her hand into a stream of glittering gold as it connected with the horse…
