The Tyrants of the Tangle

“Nothing real had a tongue like that.”

From THE TYRANTS OF THE TANGLE

A Middle-Grade Fantasy (60,000 words)

When twelve-year-old Game Master Angus Gale enters the forest to search for his missing brother, the dangerous world he created in his game comes alive. To save not only his brother but himself, he must make a deal with his characters to protect their world … or they’ll destroy the real one.

His hand needed no encouragement to close around the dodecahedron, pressing into the golden curlicue numbers on its twelve faces—its own little world, full of possibilities based on the question you asked and the roll you got.

From THE TYRANTS OF THE TANGLE

A Jumanji-style tale of a game come to life in a dangerous forest, it’ll appeal to fans of The Gauntlet and the Maya and the Rising Dark series. Similar to Roll for Initiative, the game in my novel brings kids together and helps them face their fears.
