The Mystery Of The Hidden Cabin (Bess's Magical Garden)
(Volume 1) by M E Hembroff (Marjorie Eileen Hembroff)

After Bess Silver had settled into her new home in Pineview she thought her biggest problem would be settling into a new school. She was surprised to learn that it was a one room school house which was different from what she was used to. That all changed when Megan Skye, her best friend and cousin, dashed into their kitchen late one afternoon with exciting news. Megan's father discovered an old cabin, hidden behind a wall, when he started kitchen renovations. Megan asked him to take the suitcases, ledgers and trunk they found to Bess instead of throwing them out. Clues turn up in the suitcases and in a secret compartment in the cabin which leaves Bess puzzled. When she first looked around the cabin she sees a ghostly figure that disappears in an instant but was as real as Megan. Dreams about the cabin and occupants haunt Bess. These feel so real that Bess can't shake the feeling that she was actually near them. Who is the figure that Bess saw in the cabin? What is she trying to tell her? Why is she having dreams about the old cabin? Will Bess be able to figure out who the mysterious figure is? Or would these secrets remain secrets forever?

Bess's Magical Garden by M. E. Hembroff

Bess's mother moves them to Pineview, away from her best friend Megan, and she terribly misses her. Six months earlier, Bess’s father died in a car crash, and she’s also in the midst of recovering from the final stages of polio. She's in a sad and lonely place.

From the moment she and her mother settle into their new home, Bess hears whispering voices and encounters a ghostly figure in the well-kept garden and in her dreams. She can’t make sense of everything and so shares her observations with Megan by writing her regular letters.

During the summer, she makes new friends, including an orange and white tomcat that she names Pumpkin, and her new neighbour Josie. With the help of Mrs. O’Toole, the woman who watches her, Bess continues to recover, both physically and emotionally. She becomes more and more curious about the garden and the unexplained clues that she finds there.

In Bess’s Magical Garden, Bess discovers her own true strengths through enduring life’s struggles. She - with Josie and Megan’s help - also finds some hidden items in the garden, including a map, that leave the girls with more questions than answers. Who was the figure that visited Bess? Will Bess and her friends be able to uncover the garden’s secrets? Or will those secrets be mysteries forever?

About The Author: After retiring M.E. Hembroff decided to pursue her dream of writing a book. Her daughter adopting an abandoned cat motivated her to start creating a story and soon the character of Bess was born. For inspiration, she tapped into her childhood from the 1950's when she grew up on a farm in rural Manitoba, Canada, the fourth of five children. M.E. Hembroff now lives in Strathmore, Alberta, with her spoiled Shih Tzu, two cats, and two budgies. Bess's Magical Garden is her first book.

Message From Author: Reading is a great way to escape the hum drum everyday routine. It’s also a healthy way to escape problems if only for a little while. Then it’s possible to go back to them with a fresh outlook. It’s a way of visiting faraway places you wouldn’t ordinarily go. Reading can trigger your imagination as you read stories short or long. My imagination took me places I wanted and helped me create pastimes and games.

I write to escape, entertain and to trigger the reader’s imagination. I have always felt compelled to write and to share with others. I hope my stories will help readers to explore new worlds around them and stimulate their imagination. Writing helps to release my imagination and emotions and is therapeutic.

My writing inspiration: I have always been an avid reader and creative. When I was growing up reading helped to trigger my imagination. At the time one of my favorite authors was L.M. Montgomery who wrote the Anne of Green Gables series and Emily of New Moon series. She still is one of my favorites. After reading her journals she became a real person who struggled with her writing for a long time before she was published. She has been an inspiration for me and her descriptive writing triggered my imagination. I identified with her main character Anne.

It wasn’t until much later in life when I started to write. At first in a journal and then short stories. It wasn’t until my children were grown up that I got the idea for writing a book. I started to have a series of dreams where I was holding a book without any title and blank pages. At one of our art meetings one of the other ladies started talking about dreams. She said that I was supposed to write the book and make the cover. I didn’t think that was possible but a few weeks later an idea came to me. One morning while I was drinking my coffee I started to scribble on a piece of paper and quickly realized it was more than a story. Shortly afterwards I enrolled in an online writing course which helped me to form an outline. At the end of the course I had the first draft of my book. Finally, many drafts later my middle grade book Bess’s Magical Garden was published.

Personal: I grew up in rural Manitoba the fourth child in a family of five. My brother and older sister were much older than me and sometimes took the role of parents. My other sister is four years younger than me. My parents were older than my friends’ parents and almost old enough to be my grandparents.  When I was growing up we didn’t have a TV but did have a radio. I loved music and constantly listened to the radio. I was creative and used my imagination to entertain myself. I would always dream up stories but never wrote them down because they looked pretty dismal on paper. I have always loved animals and every time I went for a walk our dog, Lady, a border collie, and a string of cats followed me. I still have a dog, Odie, and two cats Morris and Patches.

I still like to read and read a wide range of books that include historical novels. I work in my garden and do art work. I do sketches in pencil, pen and ink, colored pencil and acrylic paintings. My subject matter consists of animals, old buildings and landscapes.

I have gone full circle. I grew up on a farm and then moved to the city. I lived in the city for over thirty years but now live in a scenic small town. It took me a long time to learn to get out of my own way. Once I learned to relax the words started flowing and my characters were finally able to get out of my head.

I wrote different blogs on writing but they were mostly the how and not the why. Here I hope that everyone will finally understand the why.

Artist Statement: Writing is as natural as breathing and makes me a complete person. I was taught to keep my feelings hidden and often hide them from myself. Writing gets me in touch with my creative self, spirit and my inner child who finally can express herself. Writing makes me a more rounder and fulfilled person. Writing is a must do not a want to. I have an inner compulsion to write that has to be listened to.

Doing art work has always been the same. I draw and paint because I have to. Drawing and painting releases a lot of pent up emotions and keeps me in touch with my creative side which grows stronger all the time.

There have been different artists and writers who influenced my style at first and I have gone on to develop my own unique style. Reading about other writers’ life’s and meeting other artists has given me a great deal of encouragement during periods when I didn’t feel like continuing with my work.
