A YA Fantasy Fiction Series by Tracy Partridge-Johnson
Book One: The Golden Telescope
Book 1 in the series: The Golden Telescope introduces us to twelve year old orphan, Jack Mac Paidin, and his buddy, Bart, who live in Portland, Oregon. We quickly discover that Jack doesn’t know anything about The Dark Cabal who orchestrated his parent’s death and separated him from his brother and sister eight years ago. Nor is he aware of the immense, untapped magical powers currently lying dormant in two of the three children. It isn’t until an Irish butler, named Arthur, materializes into his bedroom one night, and whisks him away to his ancestral home just outside Dublin, Ireland that Jack learns of the key role he will play in locating his grandmother, Lydia, who has been missing in time for more than two decades, and the nefarious plot designed to alter the course of Jack’s young life.
Tracy Partridge-Johnson has always loved books, stories and magic. This series was loosely inspired by a handful of true events from her father’s life. Tracy then sprinkled in lots and lots of imagination and fairy dust to turn those events into a fantasy work of fiction!
Book One: The Golden Telescope is the first of at least six more books in the Jack and the Magic Hat Maker series.
A self-employed artist, entrepreneur, small business-owner, world-traveler, and foodie, Tracy has three adult children, nine grand children, and lives happily in a small town on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon with her life-partner, Jeff.
