JOIN THE JOURNEY!
Why is Mud? provides a place to read THE THORN QUEEN and builds upon the “hero’s journey” theme to encourage and embolden tween girls. The site also offers a place for tweens and the adults in their lives to have active discussions and explore and share their own “journeys.”
Along the way, readers have all sorts of opportunities to win prizes—answering questions, suggesting outcomes, even submitting their own chapters if they would like!

Each week you, the reader, will get a new chapter of THE THORN QUEEN. After you have read it, you are invited to submit your answer to the question at the end of the chapter. I will send prizes to all those of you who answer the question correctly! I will publish the answers in “Extra Chapters” the following week. PLEASE NOTE; You may not win prizes for those questions already answered in “Extra Chapters. CHAPTERS 3 – 10 ARE STILL ELIGIBLE FOR PRIZES!.
