Hi Ed!

My two girls are actually a good mix for my protagonist in Deceived and I've been very crafty about putting my families names in all of my books in various ways.

The only true to form character is my brother - he's in several books, all of them with him being a player, a punk or a bully. He's none of those things and yet all. HAHA! I love the fact that I can pull a "gotcha!" and he doesn't even get it.

Thanks for asking!

Hi Lozzi. Thanks for reading the book. :)

I actually don't. They are one boy in my mind, so like I love my 3 kids the same, I love them equally. I'd like to date Nick and marry Marcus! Haha..

What about you? Who did you favor at the end of book one? Let me see if my charms worked. (less)

Howl at the Moon (Children's Books)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 11, 2014 07:34PM
Description: A creation in progress: My Middle Grade series that resembles the Hardy Boys with a bit of a paranormal twist. Ben, Jake and Leah have multiple supernatural experiences all in the name of making a buck and having an adventure. Eighth graders, Ben, Jake, and Leah need cash, and mowing lawns in the winter just isn’t ideal. What they need is a way to make lots of money and quick. Jake has a brilliant idea - they’ll create a detective agency, Liarus (Liars R us) Detective Agency. Ben and Leah reluctantly agree because Jake promises the adventure of a lifetime and loads of money. Besides, no one really meets a private detective, right? They’re private for a reason. Their first client is Old Lady Smitz, who is said to have murdered her three sons and husband. She’s missing a family heirloom, but it’s not just any old trinket. It’s the crest of Lykoi. It’s said to have magical powers, but in order to track it they’ll need to employee the help of a witchdoctor. In the midst of their search, they discover a large wolf that has the town sheriff and everyone’s parents in fits because it’s mauling small animals and roaming the streets at night. But it’s not just any ordinary wolf, it’s a werewolf, and he’s missing his crest. The only two rules Old Lady Smitz has for the detectives are no girls allowed on the case, and to never seal a deal with the witchdoctor. Soon, the three friends find themselves trapped between a scheming witchdoctor and an angry werewolf. Who knew trying to make a buck would cause so much trouble.
