Amy and Becky, identical 10-year-old twins, find that their grandpa, a retired chemist, had accidentally discovered a formula which will make things disappear as well as another formula that will reverse the process. When grandpa is away, they apply the potion on themselves, hoping to have fun by being invisible while they play a trick on their friends. When they return, they apply the formula which was supposed to make them visible again, but it doesn't seem to work. What will they do? Will they miss out on the rest of their lives because of this?

Prior to coming to live I Lawrence in 2002, I was president of two districts in the California Writers Club and won literary prizes, wrote numerous magazine pieces (including a feature article for Writer's Digest), and helped bring accomplished writers to the club as keynote speakers. One of these was Alex Haley, the author of Roots. Since coming to Lawrence, I became president of one of the districts for the Kansas Authors Club.
I won the Donald Coffin Memorial Book Award for my historical novel Sissy!, a Best Books Award for my second novel of my trilogy called All Parts Together. And I was a finalist for the International Book Award for my third novel of that trilogy called Angels at Sunset. All three books involved a woman who lived in Lawrence during the Quantrill raid and returned to Lawrence in 1920, where she was overwhelmed by the many changes since she left for Washington, DC in 1863--soon after the devastation of the Quantrill raid.
I should mention that the Kansas State Library nominated my first two books (Sassy! And All Parts Together) to be included among the top 150 Kansas books--including such books at Little House on the Prairie and Capote's In Cold Blood. I was also recognized by the Kansas State legislature for bringing attention to the centennial for women's suffrage in Kansas with Angels at Sunset.
I wrote two poetry books, The Uni Verse and The Museum Muse. The Uni Verse won the Nelson Poetry Book Award, and one of my poems in The Museum Muse was a Finalist in the Writers Digest Poetry Competition.
I have a new book out called The Invisible Twins, which is a chapter book for children in the 7 to 10 year age range. I have an interesting background concerning the education of children, having been a paid tutor for 4th and 5th grades at Canoas Elementary School in San Jose, CA, assisted a teacher at St. John's School for teaching children in the first grade how to compose simple stories, and tutored children in the 4th and 5th grades at St. John's for writing stories.
