Genre: Fantasy Published: 2017 Series: The Antics of Evangeline Read: January 2018 Evangeline is a 17 year old inventor and troublemaker in 1882, in steampunk Melbourne, Australia. In this outing she tackles a mystery involving dirigibles. Both Evangeline and her father confront old nemeses and win the day through derring-do in the skies.

Genre: Fantasy Published: 2016 Series: The Antics of Evangeline Read: January 2018 Great light read for younger teenagers, set in a steampunk Melbourne, Australia, in 1882. Evangeline and her friend Mei track down and confront an evil alchemist who has turned iron into gold, but unfortunately the transmutation is temporary. The girls rely on Evangeline’s inventions, Mei’s martial arts and a small injection of magic to escape with their lives. Fun.
