"Dear Readers: I wrote the Legends of Orkney series for my twelve-year-old son who challenged me to write something he would enjoy reading. The Red Sun is filled with exciting characters who struggle to find their true path. Sam learns so much about his past and how to overcome his anger, but will he continue to use his power for good or will he be drawn to the dark side? I hope you enjoy reading the Legends of Orkney series as much as I enjoyed writing them for you. The picture book series are dedicated to my father, the original Coal Thief! Keep reading!" - Alane Adams

Alane Adams Are you kidding?? It's the best job ever. Writing is a passion, a skin your are born with, A writer who is not writing is secretly miserable.

Alane Adams Winter Olympic Champions


In the spirit of this month’s Winter Olympics, I wanted to share my thoughts on what I consider medal-winning series for middlegraders that you might not yet have heard of. Of course everyone on the planet is familiar with Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. But what are some other podium-worthy series?


I present to you Alane Adams Winter Olympic Champions!
