Darcy Marks

About Grounded for All Eternity (available now):  A group of kids from hell come to Earth on one of the craziest nights of the year—Halloween—in this “entertaining, high-octane” (Kirkus Reviews) middle grade adventure about teamwork, friendship, shattering expectations, and understanding the world (or otherworld) around us.

The Afterlife of the Party, the second book in this fabulous series arrives in July 2023 -- preorder below!

Darcy Marks is a lifelong reader who learned to walk quite well with a book in front of her face, thank you very much. She lives in Vermont with her husband, three genre-defying kids, a very needy cat and an extremely friendly former racehorse, where she writes rebellious fantasy books for kids. When she’s not reading or writing she explains math and science to lawyers as a forensic toxicologist and used her several black belts to help found The Safety Team, a non-profit changing the world and smashing the patriarchy one step at a time.  Visit her online at DarcyMarks.com.

Vermont Almanac: Stories From & For The Land

 

About Vermont Almanac: “What is unique to Vermont’s sense of place has been captured in a new book that really must be added to any Vermonters’ book collection or coffee table. Vermont Almanac . . . is a beautiful compilation. It is breathtaking in its depth of advice and information. It is, in effect, How to Vermont. Broken down by month, it has something for everyone who loves the state.” – Barre-Montpelier Times Argus/Rutland Herald

The Almanac is organized by month and provides a year’s worth of stories, data, illustrations, and photography. Each beautifully bound edition records the prior year’s weather, trends in agriculture, changes in the forest, and developments in the rural economy. But each volume does more than look back; it also introduces readers to the people who inspire hope for the future of the land we all share. The farmers, loggers, conservationists, homesteaders, scientists, hunters – in short, the “doers” – who are preserving and pioneering a rural way of life in an increasingly urbanized culture.

Their goal is for Vermont Almanac to bring together the many individuals and organizations in Vermont whose mission and purpose falls within the land ethic we live by – one that combines economic vitality with environmental stewardship and the values of rural life. 

About the Editors: Vermont Almanac is produced by For the Land Publishing, a non-profit organization. The editors — Virginia Barlow, Dave Mance III, and Patrick White — hail from different parts of Vermont and together have many decades of professional experience in forestry and farming, and nearly equal experience in writing and publishing.
