The 2013 GAYAs were presented on Saturday, June 15 at Kennesaw State College. More than 115 books in 13 categories were nominated for this year’s 49th GAYA event.
“PYRAMID OF THE LOST WORLD” was published in October, 2012 by Brandylane Publishers, Richmond, Virginia. http://www.brandylanepublishers.com
The novel is set among the pyramids and temples of an ancient Maya city. It features 12 year-old Carly Sullivan who accompanies her archaeologist mother on a dig. “PYRAMID OF THE LOST WORLD” is the first title in Ms. Page’s LOST WORLDS adventure series. As Carly and her friend Zoe connect to the mysteries of lost civilizations, they also confront their own deepest fears and real life problems.
2013 GAYA judge Pat Garrett cited Page’s book as “an engaging adventure story,” “fast-paced,” and one that “transports the reader into the Maya jungle.”
The action in Page’s next LOST WORLDS novel, “ISLAND OF THE LOST WORLD,” takes place at an ancient Minoan site on an idyllic Greek island. Publishing information is forthcoming.
Before her career as a children’s author, Sandra Page taught school and enjoyed a long career as a trial lawyer in Georgia. She is a graduate of Florida State University and the Mercer University School of Law.
