A Calgary #1 Bestseller, Maddie's first adventure is gleaning praise from adventure authors far beyond the Steampunk world:  

"A priceless stolen mask. A beguiling steampunk setting. And an intrepid heroine you can't help rooting for - absolutely delightful!"   
Melodie Campbell
Author of award-winning Goddaughter series

"a rousing adventure peopled by fabulous characters, combined with a mystery that will keep you guessing right to the last!"
DJ McIntosh, author of the internationally acclaimed Babylon Trilogy.  

The Author in character as Madame Taxus-Hemlock
Miss Maddie Hatter, renegade daughter of a powerful Steamlord, is scraping a precarious living as a fashion reporter when the story of a lifetime falls into her lace-gloved hands.  

Baron Bodmin, an adventurer with more failed quests than fingernails, has vanished in circumstances that are odd even for him. 

While he is supposedly hunting the fabled Eye of Africa diamond in the Nubian desert, his expeditionary airship is found adrift off the coast of England.  

Maddie was the last reporter to see the potty peer alive. If she can locate the baron or the Eye of Africa, her career will be made. 

Outraged investors and false friends complicate her quest, and a fiendish figure lurks in the shadows, ready to snatch the prize . . . at any price.
