“Is it real? Maylie blinked. It was still there. She snapped a photo.

High walls stood strong of golden stone with more lining the top edges like jagged teeth jutting into the sky. Slim towers rounded each corner. The castle was like something from a storybook perched on an island with water spreading out in a wide moat.

Maylie could imagine archers at the ready to defend the castle with bows drawn and arrow tips sticking out between the roof stones.”
M.L. Tarpley, Maylie and the Maze

“Rana immediately scribbled on her paper while Maylie felt the familiar freeze of her mind as she urged her imagination to take her far away.

But twenty minutes later, she longed for a black hole to appear under the table and devour her.”
M.L. Tarpley, Maylie and the Maze

“Search for the possibilities. Let her imagination go. She breathed in deep and focused.”
M.L. Tarpley, Maylie and the Maze

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“And so for a time it looked as if all the adventures were coming to an end; but that was not to be.”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“Search for the possibilities. Let her imagination go. She breathed in deep and focused.”
M.L. Tarpley, Maylie and the Maze

“Your imagination is truly the most powerful thing. And to write you must tap into it.”
M.L. Tarpley, Maylie and the Maze

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
