David Page, a Houston-area resident with four grown children, has completed his new book “Now Do You Believe in Magic”: a poignant tale of metamorphosis, acceptance, and renewal.

“As you read this story, you’ll find yourself laughing, and sometimes you’ll find yourself with tears in your eyes. But at the end, you’ll have to ask yourself, 'Now do I believe in magic?' I hope you like the story as much as I did writing it.”         -David Page

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, David Page’s heartfelt tale poses the question of how far one would go for love.

“Now Do You Believe in Magic?” is a story about a couple of teenagers growing up in the late sixties to early seventies. Megan Miller is a sixteen-year-old girl who has a secret: she’s gay. Not only that, she has a bad reputation, the kind most girls would hate to have. She runs into a witch and finds out about a spell that will transfer her soul into another person’s body, but she only has a month to do it. She needs to find a boy willing to do the spell with her. In her search, she finds a boy named David Wilson, who’s also gay. David had graduated the year before and was now nineteen and planning to move to California to start a new life. She talks him into doing the spell with her, and to David’s surprise, it works. Now he, as Megan, must learn how to be a sixteen-year-old girl and back in school.

Megan is now in David’s body, and she, as David, moves to California and starts the new life that he wanted. David, now stuck in Megan’s body, must somehow straighten out the bad reputation had Megan left him with. As Megan, he meets a boy in school and falls in love, and after the two of them graduate, they get married. Decades later as an old woman, she reads a story in the newspaper about witches and is compelled to write to the paper, telling them if they wanted to know about real magic, they needed to come see her. The editor sends a reporter named Jack Dunham to interview her. Her husband had passed away two years prior, and she’s left alone. After meeting Jack, she was quite taken with him. Again, she goes to see the old witch to find out if she can make her young again. The old witch tells her there is a way, but it will be very dangerous. Megan wants to try anyway- she wants to meet Jack as a young woman to see if they would fall in love.
