Author of: The "Old" Adventures of Hailey and Jared
Hailey and Jared are best friends who
have gone on several exciting adventures. Originally a series, I have now put
six of their fun but scary short stories together for this book. Each story has
suspenseful adventures that always end with a twist. Enjoy!
introduction, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Born in Iowa, I grew up reading the Nancy
Drew Mysteries. As a teen I did a rough draft of a short story but it wasn't until
a year ago that I finally took my time to sit down and re-write it, and then
had it published as an e-short story called Old Jacob. I now have several short
stories and one book with the first 6 stories which is called The "Old
Adventures of Hailey and Jared". These stories were written with my
grandchildren in mind and are based on some adventures from my childhood. I did
write one story for adults "Dying to Write" as once I start a story
it's hard to stop and it occurred to me that I could do a story about it. I
have sold a few and of course would love to sell a bunch more but the feeling
of accomplishment when I finished a story is satisfying enough.
