New Book Series Takes Place in Wayne
Children’s author and Strafford resident Leslie A. Susskind has released a new book, “So You Think You Babysit Monsters?”

“So you think you babysit monsters?” is the first book in her new middle grade fantasy series, The Abercrombie Family Business: Totally True, Tir Griffin Story #1. 

It tells the story of thirteen year old Mackenzie Abercrombie, who really does babysit monsters. She’s Tir Griffin’s newest undercover Magic Minder, a role her family has held for generations.But in addition to getting the hang of babysitting monsters, Mackenzie also has middle school and the new boy in her class to worry about… and if her two very different worlds collide, does she have what it takes to save the day?  

While her first series, The Zephram Tales, takes place in a fantasy realm, The Abercrombie Family Business takes place in present day, outside of Philadelphia in the Strafford/Wayne area. 

She is also the author of several manners and good sportsmanship themed books.Villanova resident and artist Carol Chew illustrated the book cover showing Mackenzie and two of her charges outside of Tir Griffin’s entrance gate.  

Print and ebook versions are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Sony and other online and book and mortar retailers.  Anyone interested in winning a copy can enter a Goodreads giveaway, which ends January 11, 2014.
