Read Review
Fans of the classic detective/spy story as well as the popular THE SECRET SERIES will adore this highly illustrated debut middle-grade adventure featuring three young sleuths!

Fear Not the Unexpected.  

Eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow is less than thrilled that her family is moving thousands of miles from civilization to the quiet country town of Ashpot, Connecticut, where she’s absolutely certain she’ll die of boredom.
As if leaving New York City and her best friend, Lizzy, the only other member of the elite Detective Mystery Squad (DMS), weren’t bad enough, Fairday is stuck living in the infamous Begonia House, a creepy old Victorian with dark passageways, a gigantic dead willow tree, and a mysterious past. 
         Before she can even unpack, strange music coming from behind a padlocked door leads Fairday up a spiral staircase and into a secret room, where an ancient mirror, a brass key, and a strange picture of a red-haired lady are the first in a series of clues that takes the members of the Detective Mystery Squad on an amazing adventure.

“The novel builds to an exciting climax that takes magic in stride and suggests that further mysteries await the DMS trio.”–Publisher’s Weekly 

“This paranormal mystery will be of interest to young readers looking for something spooky but not violent or scary.”–Booklist

Inside a multi-million dollar mansion in the quiet well-to-do Belle Meade area of Nashville, a sixty-something widow is murdered. Unsolved after eight years, no one has the nerve to call this one a cold case, at least not in the presence of the victim’s brother, Music City Mayor Harrison Rowe.
Still frustrated by the lack of evidence and convinced he knows who the killer is; Mayor Rowe pulls rank and calls in veteran Nashville homicide detective, Sergeant Mike Neal. Rowe is familiar with Sergeant Neal’s unique past and he’s certain this investigator will have no trouble relating to the case.
The mayor’s appeal is motivated by his knowledge of Sergeant Neal’s most recent assignment. A young attorney was murdered near his home in Brentwood. The early stages of Sergeant Neal’s investigation have produced a person of interest, Nashville financial advisor Barrett Stone, who was the son of Mayor Rowe’s sister’s fiance and the man Rowe is convinced killed his sister.
The morning following Sergeant Neal’s initial interview with Barrett Stone, the offices of Stone Asset Management, as well as all client investment accounts, are found empty. Initial investigations uncover reliable evidence that Barrett Stone has left the country with a new identity and forty-five million dollars.
Mayor Rowe, guided by this knowledge and desiring revenge even more than justice, charges Sergeant Neal with one solitary assignment. Find Barrett Stone, and bring him back to Nashville to FACE THE MUSIC.

Read Review
The warm, tingly feeling that had been smack in the middle of Alvin Fernald’s stomach ever since Miss Peppersmith had closed and neatly lined up her books that Friday afternoon, had grown bigger as he and Shoie walked home from school. Now, here, in his hand, was the reason why! Alvin’s sixth sense tells him that the crumpled note holds a secret message in spy code, which is about to catapult the two seventh grade secret agents plus Alvin’s younger sister Daphne, the Pest, into the intricacies of authentic code detection and the dangers of a newly stirred-up 100-year-old mystery.
Even Alvin’s Magnificent Brain is nearly put on overload before the bang-up solution to the code and the mystery carry the three agents to an ending that is satisfying to all…well, to almost all. This classic tale from 1963 includes Alvin’s own notes on cryptography in an appendix at the back.

Scarlet’s Escape (The Sanctum Series) Book 2
Praise for Scarlet’s Escape, Book 2 of the Sanctum Series:
“There are plenty of red herrings and false trails to keep the reader guessing about who – or what – is responsible. Very much a recommended book for those still a little too young for ‘young adult’ fiction but who have grown out of books such as the Famous Five but still have a taste for adventure with a technological twist and a strong moral center.” ~ Phil Leader, Book Reviewer
Blurb:
Over a year has passed since Avando rescued Jayden from homelessness. Strange things are happening within The Sanctum, and their movements to fight terrorism are continually being jeopardised.

Secrets are discovered at Ernest State College. On the surface, they appear to be working for the good side, but what are they hiding?

What’s up with Scarlet? Has she blown her mainframe?

Reviewer Praise:
“The characters continue to evolve and develop with laughter, tears and challenges to be found at every step. The intrigue builds beautifully with secrets of Ernest State School being revealed and lots of surprises are to be had along the way.” ~ L
“Scarlet’s Escape was much more suspenseful. Two things caused this. I felt myself really trying to turn the pages during the action scenes. And The Sanctum isn’t nearly as safe of a place as it was in the first book.” ~ Jane. H
“Great story. Surprisingly full of insightful metaphors and life lessons.” ~ Amazon Customer

If you like a book that suits
* Late Middle Grade/Early Young adult
* Action packed
* Spy Thriller/Sci-Fi with heart

Anna Mae Shetler is a tomboy who loves nothing more than exploring the woods with her two best friends, Amos and Jeremiah. During a game of hide and seek they stumble upon a mystery that will threaten to tear apart their friendship, and—as they soon discover—it’s a mystery that caused a rift in their families decades earlier. 

Anna Mae and her friends are playing in the old tree house in the woods when a floor board suddenly breaks. No one is seriously hurt, but when they take a second look, they see that a metal box of money and a diary are hidden under the floor in the crook of the tree branches. Upon further inspection, they discover that it is a lot of money.

As the three set out to solve the mystery, they learn that Jeremiah and Anna Mae’s grandmothers were once great friends, something they would have never guessed since the two women have only been distantly civil to each other in their lifetimes. As they search further, Jeremiah and Anna Mae realize there is a missing third party who must certainly hold the answers to this puzzle. Before they can find out, the money disappears again and threatens the trust of the three friends.

Can Anna Mae solve this mystery before it tears apart more relationships? And can God heal decades-old pain and distrust?

Unexplained voices coming from nowhere in the middle of the night, a strange man lurking around them, a quirky great- aunt who has an obsession about a singer who has been dead for years, a homeless teen-age boy with a secret—all mysteries that twelve-year-old Mandi Ferguson must solve during her dreaded stay in Memphis, Tennessee. Much against their will, she and her twin sister have been sent from their home in California to stay with a great-aunt they barely know while their mother is on a two-week honeymoon in Europe.

There is nothing Mandi likes any better than solving mysteries and when she hears voices outside of her room during her first night in Memphis, she is convinced she is hearing ghosts, possibly Elvis Presley’s ghost since her great-aunt’s house is right behind the entertainer’s home, Graceland.

Is there a connection between the voices and the man who is spying on them? What about the homeless boy with a mysterious past who needs their help? What is Aunt Trina’s true connection to Elvis? And why doesn’t her mother call more often—is she so enamored with her new husband that she is unconcerned about her daughters?

Mysteries can be fun to solve, but as Mandi learns the answers to all of her questions, she discovers that the solutions were right in front of her all along. All she needed to do was ask.
