The Chosen: Book One of the Portals of Destiny

Finalist in the Indie Excellence 2011 Book Awards

The Mekan hoard threatens all life in the galaxy and only the Chosen, a select group chosen by fate,
can fight these metal monstrosities and save those that call this galaxy home. But when one of the Chosen is murdered, the untimely death could spell doom for all.

This series will bring the reader face-to-face with an age-old question: How much of our lives.

Dangerous Reflections: The Adventures of Alexis Davenport: Book One

Alexis Davenport wants to go home. She hates her new school, her mother for moving her away from her friends, living in her aunt’s guesthouse, and her father for walking out.

To make matters worse, Alex is haunted by the images of strange girls reflected in her mirror. It is bad enough juggling homework, a relentless bully, boys, and a deadbeat dad.

Now, she must save the world from an evil presence hell-bent on changing the past–and our futures. Who knew her A+ in history was going to be this important?

Children’s author, Penny Holguin speaks to educators, parent groups and others about the escalating tide of bullying (which begins in preschool!). She addresses the neurology of learning and how simple acts of kindness taught repetitively and rewarded publicly can make huge shifts in behavior that have a transforming impact on young children.

Penny’s children’s picture book ‘Sarah O’Hara ~ Gift of the Fairy Wings’ has won three national awards. She was inspired to write it because her ADHD daughter had difficulty picking up on social cues. A background in visual arts, aided by Penny’s understanding that lessons told through story and character are a much more effective way of teaching children, helped bring her book to life. It’s about Sarah O’Hara, who receives a pair of fairy wings for her birthday. She’s anything but a princess when she bullies her classmate. Ultimately Sarah discovers the most important gift of all; that it takes more than a pair of fairy wings to be a real princess.

Penny Holguin lives with her husband and two children in Denver Colorado.
