    Interview and Review for Patricia Merker for her Grand Master/Little Master Series

    Come and join me as I talk with author Pat Merker for her The Grand Master/ Little Master Series on Stories From Unknown Authors @ 5pm EST today.

    The Grand Master Little Master Series: The Karate Tournament
    The Grand Master Little Master Series: Love Has Many FacesThe Grand Master Little Master Series: Sink or Swim

    Paperback: 26 pages

  • Publisher: Pick-a-Woo Woo Publishers (October 10, 2011)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0980652049
  • ISBN-13: 978-0980652048

  • Summary:

    The Karate Tournament is the first book and the foundation for all subsequent books in The Grand Master/Little Master Series. This book is your child's introduction to Grand Master and his/her invitation to go on a life-changing adventure! When eight-year-old Haley's mother asks her if she would like to play a game on the morning of her karate tournament, she is somewhat reluctant, given all the butterflies in her stomach! Not quite able to resist the temptation, however, she agrees. Grand Master (who makes His/Her presence known through mom in this first story) tells Haley that she has been chosen to be a Little Master-in-training and there is much to do. What follows is a heartwarming story of a little girl who learns the importance and magic of Cause and Effect; what goes around, comes around. "What you put out in the world comes back, Little Master; cause love, cause kindness, cause forgiveness. Try not to cause sadness or anger. This too, must come back." This is the story of Haley, and how she turns a very scary and nervous situation into a joyous occasion by her conscious use of Law. This book series can be read as any other children's book, or played interactively by downloading the Parental Support Material, accessible on the authors website at

    Author Bio:

    Patricia Merker is a wife and the mother of two great kids, Haley and Jordan, who inspired her to write The Grand Master/Little Master series. She was disillusioned with the lack of spiritual, New Age material available for children. There was no shortage of parenting books, but little for children, on an interactive level, that was stimulating enough to hold a child’s attention. Her wonderful family and supportive friends told her that the parents and children of the world needed to meet Grand Master; that the world would be a better place.


    This story is wonderfully inspirational for children of all ages. The characters help the reader learn about cause and effect. To learn about how we cause good or bad feelings in the world. If we provide forgiveness, we will get it back. If we are loving, we will get love back in return, but the same goes for angry feelings and emotions as well. What great lessons to teach children and adults. The Grand Master/Little Master Series is one children will keep around for a long time.

        Seth Bauman has issues. His Mom split ten years ago, right after his birth, and guardian Uncle Troy won't discuss the past. Seth's only friend is Mexican immigrant Elena, whom he must walk home from school through Silverlake's gang-ravaged streets. When Elena is abducted by local gang 'the Mayans,' Seth has no choice but to follow the Boatman of the L.A. River into the sprawling network of sewers and metro tunnels concealing Mayan headquarters. To Seth the great labyrinth unfolds as a magical realm called 'the Interior,' whose residents immediately deem him the 'Nameless Prince' of prophecy, sent to save them from peril.
        To find Elena, Seth embarks on an odyssey of riddles and self-discovery. Only in 'Interia' is it safe to discover the truth about his past, and the forgiveness that will set him free. In rescuing Elena he rescues his own innocence. In fulfilling prophecy by learning his name, Seth discovers the greatness that lies within.
