A Qualicum Beach author recently completed her trilogy of children’s books.

Sally de la Rue Browne has released The Fairy Hollow Gold Treasure Adventure, the third book in ‘The Fairy Hollow Chronicles’ series.

The series follows the adventures of four fairies and the nosy newspaper reporter, Foxglove Squirrel, who writes about the events.

“Each book has a different theme,” de la Rue Browne said. “And the very last one was about challenging yourself to take an adventure. It’s about finding lost gold treasure and all characters, at the end, come together, and the ones that weren’t redeemed are redeemed and it has a happy ending.”

The first book chronicled the four tiny fairies’ quest and how they got their wings, while the second is about Foxglove Squirrel helping her friend, which de la Rue Browne said is an important message for children.

“The last one is about going on an adventure,” she said. “And discovering the gold at the end, the gold treasure.”

De la Rue Browne, a retired health inspector, began writing during the COVID-19 pandemic. After submitting the first book, her editor suggested writing more so readers can find out what happened to the characters. The books were also spread out to allow their illustrator, Barbara Warwick, time to complete all the artwork.

The series’ characters may even make an appearance in some short stories the author is currently working on for an ebook.

De la Rue Browne is also working on a memoir, as well as a book about her mother’s experience working at a club for Canadian soldiers during the Second World War.

The Fairy Hollow Gold Treasure Adventure was originally slated for release in February, but supply chain problems delayed it to June.

It is available online at www.sallydelaruebrowne.com and de la Rue Browne said she hopes to get copies in stores this winter.
