Yoips! I'm an author of a series of early chapter books aimed at young children just learning to read on their own.


Background Information

 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.

 

Birth Place
