"Your heart has the spirit of wolf, Leela. It's your destiny to leap into the unknown."
-Gray Wolf

"There are many paths you can take. But which one is yours?"

Leela and the Forest of Light is a fantasy adventure story based on Native American wisdom teachings that connect us to the natural world in a beautiful way. They honor all creatures and feel each animal offers a lesson. Hawk teaches Leela to see from a higher view. Mountain lion teaches her about leadership. Gray Wolf and her other animal allies test and teach her the skills she'll need to face the forces that want to stop the children of the new earth.

Follow Leela on an exciting vision quest to the world between worlds where animals speak, trees listen and magic happens.


"Your power lies within you, Leela."
-Mountain Lion

Leela never wanted to be adopted by the wealthy Rumsford family whose spoiled children make her life miserable. She feels utterly alone until a messenger from her future appears.

Raven, the bringer of magic, leads her into a mysterious forest to meet Fox, guardian of the world between worlds. He warns her that the animals, forests and oceans are in great danger because humans have forgotten their place in the circle of life.

But to fulfill the prophecy of the new earth, Leela must gather seven animal allies, shapeshift time and travel through a portal to receive the gift of far-seeing.

Can Leela face the dark forces that want to stop the new earth from rising? It's up to her to trust her heart and lead the way.
