Magic, sacrifice and the quest for
Courtney Wallis wants nothing more than to
escape St. Augustus boarding school. After uncovering a well-kept secret about
the school’s founder, Isaac Young, Courtney turns to the school’s magic to
convince her dad to let her leave. Things take a turn when she meets Cole, who
lives in the nearby town of Evergreen. He gives her hope that things might not
be so bad. However, the school's fountain has other ideas, and binds Courtney
to her ambition, no matter the cost.
As Courtney struggles to keep the magic from
taking over, she and her friends get drawn into the mystery woven into the
school’s fabric. Everything seems to lead back to the forbidden West Woods.
Together, she and her friends seek out the spirits of the past to ask for help,
and find themselves in much deeper than they’d bargained for. If
they succeed, Courtney could be free of the magic. If they fail, she may never
be the same.
Actually, more of a watch
list. I often have the TV on in the background when doing first drafts of The
Fountain Series. Not the most efficient way to write, perhaps, but it works for
me. When I’m editing, I do it in peace and quiet.
The following is a list of series I’ve watched while
creating first drafts in The Fountain Series over the past six years. Most of
them are targeted at Young Adults, which helps me get in the mood. Some of them
are older, but fun to watch the whole series at once.
