Fern from The Wandering Adventures at Hobart Mill

DUSTIN C KINARD'S DEBUT MIDDLE GRADE FICTION NOVEL 
THE WANDERING ADVENTURES
AT HOBART MILL 
JUST RELEASED!

Eleven-year-old Malachi’s life immediately shifts after a horrible accident, and he must relocate from New York City to the other side of the world. Now, residing in Tasmania on an isolated beach outside of town, Malachi must make a new home with his outgoing and adventurous great-grandmother, Granny Annie. 

One day, when Malachi decides to journey deeper into the Tasmanian forest than ever before, he discovers an abandoned mill. Curious, he steps across the threshold of the eerily high iron gates and stumbles upon a group of other-worldly characters. Together, they magically transport to a foreign land where the line between imagination and reality is blurred—where legends, folklore, and mythology come to life—and the promise of returning home is not guaranteed. 

The Wandering Adventures at Hobart Mill is an adventurous debut novel exploring the mysteries of childhood and imagination, coping through grief and loss, travel and intercultural relationships, and finding and establishing trust amongst your tribe.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Over the last decade, while writing this book, I've spent much of my time traveling the world, gathering stories, and collecting experiences. These opportunities have taught and inspired me along my journey.

I can't wait to share some of these highlights with my readers in a fun, fantastical, and magical way. Come and join me on this adventure!
