Brad is vastly out of his league, and must learn a new life, a new way of travel, to live without a cell phone, and how to manage a group of friends unlike any he's ever had.
As Brad gets his bearings on Xoviion and begins to learn to deal with rival laboratories, sporadic gravity, and museum galas where he is wildly out of place, mysteries deeper than anything he can comprehend make their way into his life.
It’s real life, only on XOVIION.

Shannon and Myrtle Winterbourne are no ordinary sisters. Not only do they live in an extraordinary house, in an extraordinary hamlet, but they also have rather extraordinary skills…
Nestled among a thicket of weeping willows deep in the heart of Dartmoor, lies a house like no other. A house defying the laws of logic–and gravity for that matter. Some might even say it had a mind, and soul, of its own. They wouldn’t be wrong.
Affectionately known as Willow, this house has been an integral part of the Winterbourne family for over 400 years, and it is very, very protective of the Winterbournes, so woe betide anyone who dares to wrong this family of witches…
Willow Tree Farm is the very first magical novella in The Winterbourne Witches, a Cozy Witch Mystery series. If you like quirky characters, magical mysteries and moments that will have you laughing out loud, then you’ll love Suzy Turner’s Willow Tree Farm.
“What is so different about this Formal?”“For one, there are fifty contestants. For another, Conrad is a contestant.” “No Timur, Not Conrad.” “Alexander, if there is one thing I have always said, it is that if someone wants to take their own life, that is their decision. Not just their decision but their right.” “Timur, please, for a human I agree. But not us?” “For us even more so Alexander. We may have been granted special powers and we may even live forever. But our minds are still human. That never changes. And for some of us it is more than our minds can take. Besides, maybe Conrad will win?” And so begins “The Formal”, the game of death.

In August 2018, I was working nightshifts as a sporting-goods warehouse security guard to fund my educational studies.
No doubt, it was incredibly unpleasant and boring there, but money talked, so I chugged along, imagining better times.
Although this is not to be encouraged, I hadn’t worked there very long before it became patently obvious that sleeping on the job was fine. See, there was no-one there to check on me, and nothing much ever happened. However, on one particularly exceptional night, I got woken by a mixture of bright, booming light and ear-smashing alarms penetrating my dreamy slumber. Having been stirred against my will, then, I sprung up, wiped dribble away, checked the CCTV, found nothing, and snapped into adrenaline-fuelled action.
Feeling wired, I hurried from my office to the warehouse without much thought besides switching that brain-smashing alarm off. Having done that, though, I found a bunch of smashed up boxes, four tennis balls on the floor, and an open notebook belonging to some crazy dropout.
Next up, I called the police, and they actually came within an hour. By then, mind, owing to boredom, I’d read a few pages of the weirdo’s memoirs, and excitingly enough, they were absolutely engaging. They also showed that he needed a break, however, so when the cops questioned me, as nothing had gone missing, I stayed schtum.
The story didn’t end there, because having finished being nosey, stored his nonsense in a drawer, waited for him to come back for it, found alternative employment, and forgot about the silly dude, I got completely bored of life.
As most folks do, I tried a few hobbies to counter that, but all of them required too much effort, involved making uninteresting friends, and generally made me suicidal.
Suffice to say, my head wasn’t where it needed to be, so I drifted into patterns of lazing around, getting wasted, and sneering at everything else. During those moments, though, I remembered the phantom-diary and wondered if I could pick it apart, then use elements to write my own book.
Ever since, I’ve been pruning hard, meaning that it’s been brushed up, changed here or there, and infused with my own creative scribbles. All character names, including that of the diary’s narrator have been amended.
What follows is a version of the original diary, fused with my own creativity, and it’s completely tarnished by the fact that I’ve not been able to track said strange burglar down. By consequence, any profit from this book will be halved and held in a separate account, awaiting its co-author’s claim.
