The O'Rourke sisters from California return in another adventure of the supernatural. This time, Alex and Jackie are in Ireland, and at the center of a mystery involving Fairies and Vikings. The famous Book of Kells is missing and all of Ireland is searching for it. The sisters don't have to search, they know where it is; it's in Alex's bed. These things tend to happen when you mess with the legendary Tuatha Dé Danann.

About Tom Weston

Boston-based writer and filmmaker, Tom Weston, returns to the fantasy genre for his 3rd novel in the Alex and Jackie Adventure series, Feathered: Being a Fairy Tale.

His novel, First Night, set in Boston during the New Year’s Eve festival, introduced the unlikely heroines, Alex and Jackie, and the ghost of a 17th century Puritan named Sarah Pemberton. First Night won an Honorable Mention in the Middle-Grade/Young Adult category, in the Writers Digest 17th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards. The sequel to FIRST NIGHT, called The Elf of Luxembourg, was published in January, 2010. As with First Night, The Elf of Luxembourg is also a supernatural mystery, with a blend of humor and history that has become Tom’s trademark.

Following the publication of The Elf of Luxembourg, Tom turned to the medium of film to produce and direct the award winning animated short, There Be Monsters!, based on one of his Tales from the Green Dragon Tavern. Tom then wrote the critically acclaimed and award winning Historical Fiction novel, Fission, based on the true life story of scientist, Lise Meitner.

Tom is now working on a new animated short called Dancing Daisy Day.
