Quality literature for the next generation

Imaginative book series inspires and engages youth


LONGWOOD, FL " According to author C. D. Koehler, So Many Secrets " The Promise of Zandra ($14.99, paperback, 9781613791271; $22.99, hardcover, 9781613791288) is a creative and exciting adventure that promotes traditional values and strong character. Koehler explains that as an educator he saw the need for quality, thought-provoking literature that would hold the reader’s interest while increasing vocabulary, promoting a time-honored belief system and inspiring the imagination. Years of creative storytelling and a personal love for reading prompted Koehler to create a series that he would want his children to read. So Many Secrets " The Promise of Zandra fills the void of worthwhile literature for the younger reader. 

So Many Secrets " The Promise of Zandra tells the story of Holly Mills, a quiet South Jersey town with the appearance of the ordinary. But far below, a terrible war is being waged in the vast underlands. Making matters worse, a beautiful princess has been kidnapped and is in the clutches of a dark lord. Death awaits if she is not soon returned. A wise gnome demands the assistance of two unsuspecting Jersey girls in the daring rescue. If they fail, an entire race will perish. The dangerous mission will reveal many secrets as it tests the girls’ courage and friendship.

C. D. Koehler has been a school administrator for most of his professional career and holds a Doctorate of Philosophy Degree in Educational Leadership from Kent State University as well as four other degrees. He lives with his wife in Northeast Ohio and has two daughters. The Promise of Zandra is his first published work in the fantasy series entitled, So Many Secrets. The illustrator Stacy M.
