I’m beyond thrilled that The Star Shepherd is finally out in the world this week! It’s such a special story and I’m so proud I’ve had the chance to be part of this project, co-authored and illustrated with Dan Haring. The Star Shepherd is about a boy and his dog, stars and family, saving the world and finding one’s own path. I hope you love it as much as we do!
“Readers will relish this fantasy with high suspense and clever plot twists. Highly recommended.”

THE STAR SHEPHERD
Neil Gaiman meets How to Train Your Dragon in this beautifully illustrated middle-grade novel about a boy, his trusted dog, and his best friend, as they race to save the stars before their light is extinguished for good.
When the world first formed, the night was black and filled with dark creatures. The Elders knew their people couldn’t survive under such a threat. So they gave their hearts to the sky in the form of stars to keep evil away.
Now, eleven-year-old Kyro is a Star Shepherd like his father. He’s spent his life tucked away in the small town of Drenn. There, the family watches the night sky for falling stars―and rushes to rescue them when they do.
When too many stars start falling at once, and disappearing before they can be saved, Kyro’s father journeys to report the threat. But when he doesn’t return, Kyro, with the help of his best friend, Andra, and his trusty dog, Cypher, must find a way to save the stars before the dark creatures make a terrifying return.
