From a very early age I remember declaring that I was going to be a writer when I grew up. Via a very circuitous route - I'm there!
My series of Dirkle Smat adventure books are stories of mystery and intrigue for kids who are discovering the joy of reading on their own. Each story is a short chapter book in which the five characters, members of their own Explorers Club, seek out adventures that require them to use their ingenuity to solve a mystery. Young readers will be challenged to use their own imaginations and create their own Explorer Club mysteries.
In the fourth book, due soon, the Explorers discover time travel!
I do frequent author visits to elementary schools and libraries and LOVE talking to kids about writing. There is a storyteller in all of us - poke around a little bit and you'll find it.
