Awards and Latest Book
Good news! California Trail Discovered and Underground Scouts both recently won Five-Star Readers Review Awards. Underground Scouts also won honorable mention in the YA historical novel Angel Award’s category. Last year, Yosemite Trail Discovered won 1st place in the YA historical novel Angel Award’s category.
Even more fun than winning awards, is meeting young people who enjoy reading. Honestly! I had several opportunities to meet with students in California this year, as well as in Texas. I will have more visits next spring as I meet with parents and students during homeschool conventions in Texas, Missouri, and Ohio. I’m really looking forward to those. If you live in any of these areas, let’s try to get together! My husband and I may also try to drive up as far as Wisconsin to visit with my aunt and cousins. I haven’t seen them in quite a while!
Another exciting event was the publication of The Alabaster Jar & the Hidden Tomb. You can view a trailer for this middle-grade historical novel here. It was previously published by Sunbury Press, but has an updated cover and text published by WordCrafts Press. Don’t miss this exciting follow-up to The Bronze Dagger & the Stolen Jewels.
