I'm G. Leeson, and I'm really excited to introduce my new series to you. Think Quantum Leap meets classic literature, and then throw in an amateur detective!
Thank you so much for dropping by. Please take a minute to look around.
The Legend of Creepy Hollow: A Literatia Short Story
In a world where literary realms collide with reality, Cooper Wellingham embarks on a perilous journey from his tranquil North Carolina home into the enigmatic realm of Literatia. But his quest quickly takes a nightmarish turn as he comes face-to-face with the menacing specter of the Headless Horseman.
Cooper's mission? To unravel the chilling murder of Brom Bones, a pivotal character in Washington Irving's timeless tale, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." However, Literatia is a far cry from his home in North Carolina. The villainous silverfish, mysterious creatures capable of distorting reality itself, have wreaked havoc upon Irving's original story. The once-prominent characters have faded into the shadows, while unknown figures have seized control of the narrative.
As Cooper delves deeper into the twisted tapestry of Literatia, he must solve Brom's murder to restore "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" to its pristine and untarnished state. But the stakes are higher than he could ever imagine. For in this literary labyrinth, losing oneself can be as dire as losing one's life. Cooper's journey is a race against time, a battle against malevolent forces, and a quest to save both a timeless tale and his very existence.
Will Cooper Wellingham conquer the darkness lurking within Literatia and emerge as the savior of a literary masterpiece, or will he too become a forgotten footnote in the annals of literary history? The answer lies shrouded in the mists of Sleepy Hollow, awaiting a hero bold enough to rewrite destiny.
