One major life change should be the limit for any kid.
About to transition from middle school to high school, Rocky is shocked when his mother announces her intention to marry Ted, a devious man with a devil’s beard, ominous eyebrows in constant motion, and black, beady eyes.
A series of strange accidents convince Rocky that Ted is using evil powers against him, and he is determined to stop the marriage. When Ted arranges to work at Rocky’s summer program, Rocky plots with his girlfriend Olive to expose Ted in an epic showdown.
Rocky’s plans are thwarted when he’s accused of stealing and suspects Ted is framing him. Scared no one will believe him, Rocky flees into the woods and encounters a hermit whose horrifying tale sends Rocky back to search for proof of his innocence.
Rocky must prosecute his case against Ted to reclaim his reputation.

Born in Boston with the accent to prove it, Risa Nyman lived within ten miles of that city for decades until a recent move to the neighboring Ocean State.
For many years, Risa worked for the League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to promoting active participation in our democracy, with a special focus on voting and elections.
Risa’s creative writing journey started when she found three pennies in a neat stack in an otherwise completely empty apartment that had belonged to her mother. It’s an interesting story, and there was definitely some magic in those pennies. Her debut middle grade novel, Swallowed by a Secret, was published by Immortal Works Press in January 2020.
When not writing, Risa is reading, exercising or doing therapeutic ironing (yes, there is such a thing.)
