Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series Books 1-6

This series was so much fun to write. I found my fingers flying over the keyboard and the stories flowed with the guidance of the characters. When I write a story, I am truly inside the story along with the characters. They tell the story as I follow along not knowing how the story will end. It is an exciting feeling. I hope you will enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them. Thank you so much!

My goal in writing for MG/PT/YA is to encourage all ages to read daily to enhance their creativity, increase their vocabulary and enable them to live healthier and happier lives. Keep reading and I will keep writing. Thank you! Happy Reading!

MG/PT/YA books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. I appreciate your kind support of my blog and books. Feel free to come back again soon.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
