Criminally Funny Fables – Boxed Set

The perfect holiday gift for Kindle friends and co-workers.

You loved Wendy and the Lost Boys, The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, and Zo White and the Seven Morphs. Now share the fun as a boxed set of snarky laughs and giggles.

Wendy and the Lost Boys

Be aware, this is not the Peter Pan story you want your kids reading. It is clearly intended for adult readers. Yet it appeals to the childlike part of us that loved the classic original stories. Combine that childlike love with modern politics and technology, and you get this smart, snarky, hilarious mystery. The story is richly developed and leaves you guessing until the very end.

Zo White and the Seven Morphs

Zo White, aerial dancer and star performer in the Grimm Brother’s Cirque is stalked by an unknown assassin. The Seven Morphs acrobatic team tumble to her rescue while preparing to leave on a covert mission. What secrets are hidden by their bright colored spandex body suits and will Zo find love with Green Morph?
Throw in outrageous plot twists, a magic mirror, 400 baby turtles, a giant python, Miami mobsters, and a few murders on the side, and it all adds up to a zany whodunit that keeps you laughing and guessing until the end.

The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters

Alice Harte’s life is falling apart. Her boss at the real estate firm where she works is a litigious and murderous man with ties to “The Mob” in Florida. She KNOWS he has literally beheaded someone in the past.

Her whole life she has dreamed of living in England and meeting a man similar to John Cleese. In an attempt to start breaking away from her boss who is threatening her with a lawsuit, she flies to England to meet Nigel Channing, who has been charming her through e-mails and phone calls.

As her life in Miami falls apart, with mobsters and a pending fraud lawsuit, her romantic savior in England looks more and more tarnished by the hour. And then she stumbles across a beheaded mob boss. How will she ever keep her head and win the lawsuit? And what about love?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This was the craziest yet fun read I’ve read in a long time. Just plain silly, when you really need a bit of silliness in your life! A lite read that will keep you enchanted and up all night reading! – from Zo White and the Seven Morphs

*******

While fractured fairy tales is not my usual reading fare, I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating little excursion with Zo White by Barbara Silkstone. Not only were there enough bumps in the night to keep me interested, it was laced throughout with refreshingly humorous characters. Kudos to this imaginative writer. I will make it a point to blend her other works into my reading experience. Well done! – from Zo White and the Seven Morphs

*******

This is not a mystery like your usual mystery, nor is it simply a humorous novel; it is the most perfect combination of the two. Knowing Silkstone’s writing, I expected Wendy and the Lost Boys to be clever and funny, but I didn’t expect such a wild ride of a mystery and a rapid repeat of thrill, laugh, thrill. The novel isn’t just non-stop fun, there’s substance here as well. It is truly one of those can’t-put-it-down gems! – from Wendy and the Lost Boys

*******

I just love Barbara Silkstone’s books and her fantastic book covers! She knows how to tell a story and really knows the craft of writing, which in combination, provides for just a wonderful experience. Throw in her imagination, and bam…a fantastic book is created! I just LOVE the way she takes old stories and puts a current spin on it. – from Wendy and the Lost Boys

*******

Barbara Silkstone takes a brilliant new spin on the Lewis Carroll classic by having her heroine bring echoes of Alice in Wonderland into our “real” world. The story is a captivating urban fantasy, a totally topical chick lit, all coupled with laugh-out-loud sophisticated humor. Silkstone hits a home run first time at bat. This would make a terrific movie. – from The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters

About The Author


Barbara Silkstone is the best-selling author of The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters ~ Wendy and the Lost Boys ~ London Broil ~ The Adventures of a Love Investigator, 527 Naked Men and One Woman.

Silkstone’s writing has been described as “perfectly paced and pitched – shades of Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen without seeming remotely derivative. Fast moving action that shoots from the hip with bullet-proof characterization.” She has attended writing workshops with Stephen King, Robert B. Parker, P.D.James, and James Michener.

Wendy and the Lost Boys topped the charts in comedy, climbing over Tina Fey, Sophie Kinsella and Ellen DeGeneres. The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters has been a consistent best seller in comedy. Both Wendy and Alice have been in the top 20 Amazon comedies at the same time.

“I enjoy doing playful things with language, blending two distinct words to create a new word. If I’m laughing out loud when I’m writing, then I know I’ve hit the mark. I laugh so loud while I’m writing that the neighbors think I’m having wild parties. I’m not. I live in South Florida where I survive on buttered popcorn and Kentucky Fried Chicken… extra crispy.”
