Part of growing up is facing challenges no matter their difficulty,” Chester says, “and those who would discourage you.”

Author Malcolm Chester’s new book “The Magic Keys of Tanglewood” (published by Trafford Publishing) has been selected for inclusion in the Trafford Publishing Gold Seal program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential.

Peggy, Jade, Carly and Skylar are 14-year-old best friends with great talents. They call themselves “the Fab Four” and aspire to be the next female superheroes. When Skylar tells the other girls a spooky, supposedly true story about Tanglewood, the high school they will be attending, they resolve to unravel the mystery of the magic keys.

Throughout the course of the girls’ quest, they face many difficult challenges and learn some important life lessons. They also learn that old legends can be true … and dangerous.

“Part of growing up is facing challenges no matter their difficulty,” Chester says, “and those who would discourage you.”

An excerpt from “The Magic Keys of Tanglewood”:

“Truly frightened now, the young girl began to turn around when a hand that looked more like a claw with its blood-red nails, reached from inside this smelly world and grabbed her gown. Before she could tear herself free, the hand pulled the young girl inside with tremendous force.”
