This month our creative endeavor we’re focusing on is writing. I’m so excited to share about my journey as an author. While I’ve been writing since I was a kid, my writing career was launched when my children’s mystery series Sherlock Academy was published. When the first Sherlock Academy book was released, it held the number 6 spot on Amazon for top Children’s Mysteries, beating out Nancy Drew and coming just behind Hunger Games and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The third Sherlock Academy book The Holmes Brigade received a review and book blurb from notable adult mystery author Charles Finch of the Charles Lenox mystery series. With four published books under my belt, I’ve done multiple book tours (both in and out of state) where I visited elementary schools, spoke at author events, and signed at Barnes’ & Noble stores. I’ve written several articles on writing and given many interviews for newspapers, podcasts, and writing groups.
All this to say, I love writing, I love story, I love kids, and I love connecting with other people on these topics. Set your reminder to return here Saturday October 6 for my full audio interview!
