What a week this is going to be. We have so many wonderful folks who want to talk about their books, reviews, and, best of all, the fabulous giveaways that are being offered.
I started writing kids books after working in an elementary school for 100 years and noticed only the little ones got excited about checking out library books. They would run up to show anybody who would listen about the treasure they found to take home and read with mom and dad. Kids, fifth grade and up, not so much!
In today’s world, reading is absolutely essential. I was not a reader as a kid. I hated reading until I had kids of my own (then I started reading to escape reality)! I decided I would try and write some stories for the middle grade kiddos. They have stresses just like we adults do. I wanted stories that would help them escape for just a little while!
Hike Up Devil’s Mountain - (eBook), printed version, and audio

Now add the school bully and his ten-year old brother who also find their way to that basement. The bully wants that stick! A fight ensues and that bully is now a toad.
What you get is a whirlwind adventure of two boys and a toad that have to hike up Devil’s Mountain to find the only person who can help them.
The dangers they meet along the way will keep you turning those pages to find out what happens next! There is a surprise ending you just don’t see coming!
Billy Cooper’s Awesome Nightmare – eBook
Billy Cooper’s seventh grade class has been given a last minute, weekend assignment. An oral book report, due Monday, on some stupid historical figure, he draws from a box.
Who the heck is William Tell?
Billy’s weekend is way too full to worry about some legend – that is, until he meets his subject face to face!
A Float Down the Canal – eBook
Twelve-year old Pam Simpson gets dumped on when her mother is called into work. She must cancel her plans for the mall to babysit her younger brother and his friend and take them to the public pool. To make matters worse her cousin, Candy, is also coming over for the day. She doesn’t even like Candy!
Much to Candy’s dismay, transportation to the pool is on inner tubes, floating down the canal. One thing leads to another and it is Pam who, once again, must save the day.
When things couldn’t seem worse, the day takes a drastic turn for the better and it is Candy, and the float down the canal, that makes this the best day of Pam’s life!
