Alec Flint in Stores July 2008

My first book, Alec Flint, Super Sleuth: The Nina, the Pinta and the Vanishing Treasure, will be in stores in July of 2008. Bruce Hale, author of the fabulous Chet Gecko mysteries, read an early manuscript, and this is what he has to say about the book: “A sweet and appealing tale with oodles of kid-appeal. It made me chuckle while whetting my appetite for mystery. Welcome Alec Flint to the ranks of grade-school sleuths!” Thank you so much, Bruce Hale!
