Fourteen-year-old Sophina Murray will be the first to tell you: Bad luck comes in threes. First, her father is lost at sea. Then, the rains start . And don't stop. And finally, her little brother
is taken from his bed by a monster straight from her worst nightmare. A glimpse into the parallel universe of Trellah - a land of giant trees, bizarre creatures, and a glowing red mineral with mystical properties - convinces Sophina that all may not be lost. But first, she'll have to survive in a hostile world where her darkest fears live and breathe.

Trellah is an original and realistic fantasy for ages 12 to 112. Parental guidance suggested for advanced readers ages 10-11 for moderate elements of horror.

The upcoming deluxe edition of this book will include illustrated paintings by artist Ryan Penney. Below is a sample of this talented artist's work.

Here's the Excerpt:

The chatter of cave life went silent as Sophina stepped toward the fissure. The silence alone was unnerving, but she knew that her movement had nothing to do with it—a realization that was beyond terrifying. Something had joined her in the cave; something that hadn’t been there until just now.
Before she could draw a breath, an icy hand fell upon her shoulder. She spun around and came face-to-face with a grotesque old man clad in a tattered yellow raincoat. The decayed skin of his face hung loose beneath the old-fashioned sea captain’s cap that covered the crown of his head; his broken teeth peeked through torn, gray lips, and his clouded, sunken eyes glared above whisker-covered cheeks.
“Where’s my daughter?” he demanded with a gravelly voice.
Sophina stumbled back as mangled hands reached for her throat.
“You stole her from me!”
The old sailor lunged as Sophina turned on her heels and sprinted away through the giant stalagmites. She ran faster than she ever dreamed possible toward the fissure, but could still sense him closing in.

About Author T.S. Graham
T.S. Graham was born and raised in midcoast Maine. He has worked as a sea urchin diver, fish monger, home renovator, and in several group homes for children and adults with disabilities. His original screenplay, Stone's Point, written as Clint Elliott, has won multiple awards. He studied English Literature at the University of Southern Maine, where, despite developing a strong dislike of the traditional curriculum focused on old, dead (and boring) scribes, he somehow managed to graduate with honors. His greatest influences are writers like Stephen King and Michael Crichton, whose talents would have allowed them to write more literary fare, but they chose to thrill and entertain instead. He now lives on a horse farm with his beautiful wife and five daughters, two poodles, two cats, two happy turtles, four playful ferrets, three fish, a corn snake named "Tiger," dozens of chickens, and, of course, four awesome equines. The Chronicles of Trellah, Book One: The Perpetual Rain is his debut novel.
