Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Book 3 The Case of the Magical Ivory Elephant – My 12th Publication – August of 2016!

I will be featuring a different book in each of these posts until I have featured all 31 of my books. In this post the spotlight is on

This series was written for my two middle grandsons who love to read about mysteries. This is a series of adventures for MG/PT/YA boys but girls like it too!

If you are looking for the perfect gift for your MG/PT/YA for Christmas or Birthday Davey & Derek Junior Detectives books are the ones to buy! If your middle-graders, preteens or young adults haven’t read this series now is the time to begin the adventure along with Davey and Derek. Each book can stand alone. I don’t believe in leaving kids hanging. I tell a complete story and go on to the next book with another complete story. Of course, many of the books carry along some of the information about the characters in the next book and so on. I always believe in beginning at the beginning with book 1 to get a feel for the characters. Then move on to book 2, 3, 4, 5 and finally 6.

Of all the books in this series this one was the most intense to write. There were so many characters, things happening and side stories about the magical elephant that I had to keep taking notes. I don’t usually take too many notes because I write as a pantser (by the seat of my pants), or in other words, I let the story evolve as the characters take over and tell their story. It is an exciting way to write but can be hard to keep track of where the characters are leading me. Each book’s ending was a surprise to me. I feel as if I am reading it for the first time like everyone else. I hope you will enjoy it too!

Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series is a fun and magical series with spells, wands, black cat, good witches, time travel, ghost hunting and more. There are also life lessons that include being kind, caring and respectful toward others, listen to parents, be helpful and do chores and bullying is never tolerated or accepted. Parents love this series too! When your MG/PT/YA read these books you will rest easy that they are reading good, clean and wholesome books. What more could you want in a book for your children?

This Davey & Derek Series won (10 book awards) – 5 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards, 3 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards – an Honorable Mention, a Silver Medal, and a Finalist, Book Excellence Award Finalist, a Silver Medal in the Authorsdb Cover Contest, Finalist in Red City Review Book Awards and many 5-Star Reviews from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards.

Blurb:

Davey & Derek Donato are twins who love adventures and enjoy being junior detectives. In Book 3 of this series their help is enlisted to find an ivory figurine that has been taken from the local museum.
There are many suspects and danger is not far from the boys as they learn more magic and use their skills to find those responsible for the theft.
Their Aunt Gigi is close by to lend a hand and at the same time help the twins hone their magical gifts.

This is the complete series of six books. I don’t plan on writing any more. I like to write in different genres and for a wide variety of audiences and subjects.
