Here’s a link to my three books (so far) for younger readers
The Rainy Day Club – http://www.amazon.com/dp/1492743011
The Intergalactic War On Maple Street – http://www.amazon.com/dp/1493611453
What You Wish For – http://www.amazon.com/dp/1494299739
coming soon, Ghost Smashers Incorporated Book One
All of these books are kid-friendly. I don’t try to preach or teach, there’s no big lesson to learn or moral. My books are about good people facing problems and overcoming them.
The writing is funny, quirky, and smart. I do not ‘write down’ to a level in my books. I believe children 9-12 are perfectly capable of reading on an adult level as long as it’s kept light and peppy. I do write stories with characters who are children and put them in situations most kids might face (like fighting aliens… er). My books entertain readers, and at the same time, present situations and outcomes that are challenging and uplifting and can be assimilated into their real lives.
I feel parents should put as much thought into the authors of the books their children read as they do in babysitters. And I respect and appreciate that trust.
