Books for Middle-Graders & Preteens for Christmas!

Sometimes it’s difficult to know what to buy middle-graders and preteens for Christmas, birthdays or any time. One suggestion is books! There are so many techie gifts that the kids ask for nowadays. But do we want them to stick their noses into screens all day? No, of course not. We want them to stimulate their minds, inspire creativity, increase their vocabulary and improve their health and wellbeing. Books can do that the and more! Get reading and get healthier today!

There are so many books to choose from online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and elsewhere. I hope you will check out some of my books there. There are 12 for MG/PT to choose from on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Let’s get shopping for all those special family and friends who are in need of a book. Ha! Well, some may need one! Thanks for letting me share my books with you once again!

I have two series for boys and girls – Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Books 1-6 and Abby & Holly Series Book 1-6. both of these series have plenty of fun adventures, magic, witch, warlocks, ghosts, haunted house, and time travel.

Davey and Derek Donato are twins, but not identical, who love to play detective. They are always ready for adventure living in the sleepy little town of Lindon where nothing happens. The twins overhear about a sixth grader who lost her cell phone. The fifth grader twins kick into detective mode to solve their first case with the help of their friends, Mickey Catonni, aka cat. Things don’t seem to add up when a bully gets into the mix.

This is Book 1 of a series of Abby & Holly books. These two girls were first introduced in Book 5 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series.
The girls are first cousins on their mothers’ side. They moved to the quiet town of Lindon, New Hampshire and live in a grand old Victorian which is haunted.
The cousins are excited about attending the 6th grade dance. When their friend, Justine, is bullied, Abby and Holly, along with the help of a ghost and Davey & Derek, work together to formalize a plan to put a stop to the bullying.

Writing these two series was a joy. They made me feel like a kid again. The books deal with friendship, anti-bullying, family is important and helping others in need. Each of my books carries important life lessons. Kids can read these stories in any order since they are stand alone stories. Though a couple of them will continue with a particular story.

This Davey & Derek Series won (11 book awards) – 5 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards, 3 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards – an Honorable Mention, a Silver Medal, and a Finalist, a Book Excellence Award Finalist, a Silver Medal in the Authorsdb Cover Contest, Top Shelf Awards – First Place and Finalist in Red City Review Book Awards and many 5-Star Reviews from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards.

This Abby & Holly Series has won 8 Book Awards – 6 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and 2 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards – Bronze Medal, and an Honorable Mention!
