No One Dies in the Garden of Syn (The Garden of Syn #1) by Michael Seidelman
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy


Synthia (Syn) Wade is a teenage girl who struggles with cystic fibrosis, an incurable life-threatening disease. One day she is pushed into a pond by an unseen figure and wakes up in a new world – a mysterious garden where illness and death don’t exist.

Welcomed by the garden’s residents and now free of her symptoms, Syn decides to stay. But, before long, she realizes that this apparent utopia holds many dangers and dark secrets. 

Surrounding the garden is a fog that Syn is warned never to enter. She encounters bizarre creatures that defy reason. And always lurking in the shadows is a masked woman - a woman who may have a connection to the disappearance of Syn’s parents many years ago. A woman whom no one will speak of, but whom everyone fears.

While No One Dies in the Garden of Syn, Syn will soon discover that some fates are worse than death.

Stumbling, I grab the flashlight, accidently flicking it on, and run as fast as my feet will carry me. The beam lands on two creatures squatting to the left of me. If the light wasn’t shining on them, I would say they were large dogs. Alas, these creatures are covered with shiny green scales, similar to the patch of skin on Flint’s back. They have a head that resembles a dog except for their snouts, which extend like a crocodile’s. Long, heavy tongues are hanging out of their panting mouths. Long tails vibrate and crackle like a rattlesnake’s. They growl at me, baring razer-like teeth. Drool rains from their mouths.
The whispers promptly return. Louder and louder. Run! Run away! Hurry! I do just that, with the terrifying beasts right on my tail.

~About the Author~

Michael Seidelman

My name is Michael Seidelman.  I was born in Vancouver, BC Canada where I continue to reside. When I was growing up, my passions were reading, watching movies, nature and creative writing. Not much has changed since then. In high school when I had an opportunity to write short stories in class, I relished reading them out loud to my classmates who would gasp at the unexpected twists and applaud when I was done. I took several creative writing classes and have continued writing over the years while working in Interactive Marketing.

About two years ago, I decided to take some time off to focus on my writing and work on a Young Adult trilogy. The first book in The Garden of Syn series – No One Dies in the Garden of Syn – will be released on April 26th. Meanwhile, I am working hard on the second and third books in the series.
Getting up every morning and sitting down to create new characters and bring new worlds to life is the most fulfilling job I have ever had. Beyond the trilogy, I have many ideas plotted out and I look forward to sharing them all with the world!
