HI, MIDDLE GRADERS!Guess what’s coming in November, 2019?! My new book !
See Seashell Contest Below!
Let your wonderful imagination take you to Nantucket Island in Massachusetts where fishing boats hold scary secrets —
and where Maggie takes on the threats of a grouchy old Cap’n Hatch
with the magical help of her Grammy Apple.
Shsssh. Here she is!
Hi, I’m Maggie and I have something to whisper to you. Ready?
There are witchy doings on the Island of Nantucket. Seriously!
Can you believe sandpipers doing cartwheels on the beach
and dune grasses doing backbends?
My father thinks I’m making it up to be overly dramatic or
just to create awesome drawings for the art fair. But my dog,
Blissful, knows it’s magic. My witchy Grammy Apple’s magic.
Wait. I’m the only one who saw this. Uh, oh.
Does this mean I’m a witch too?
The kids at school will be so mean about it,
put disgusting things on my desk like a dead jellyfish or pinch
their noses when I pass by. Even so, it would be kind of cool—
to be a witch I mean.
Who I Am
Hi, I’m Cynthia Magriel Wetzler. I used to be a journalist and wrote many stories for The New York Times. I loved interviewing
and writing about really interesting people.
But I followed my dream and started to write children’s stories because I love to make up magical worlds with magical characters!
Maybe you would like to be a journalist or a writer some day?
I have grown children and live with my husband, Garrett, in Northern Westchester, New York. Our high-spirited little
dog, Rodney, is the total inspiration for Blissful in this book. Here he is.
