When thirteen-year-old Mindy finds a glass fishing float on the beach in Mumbai, India, she discovers it's no ordinary fishing float, but a magic crystal ball, and she has been chosen to save the world. Agamede, the magical being who takes the form of the ball in her dormant state, needs Mindy’s help to stop an evil sorceress named Roxanne Evillovich. Roxie’s diabolical plan is to use Agamede’s powers to eradicate modern technology from the world and return civilization to the days when magic ruled. Roxanne's crystal ball was lost to the sea during transport to her new home, the Crystal Tower, in Portland, Oregon. Mindy must travel alone through time and space to thirteenth-century Spain, the mystical Isle of Avalon, and ancient Egypt on a quest for a spell that'll allow her to use Agamede’s powers against Roxie and save the world as we know it.

She spent twenty-two years in Los Angeles, and then returned to her native Portland, Oregon. Ms. Schwartz died from cancer in 2009.
