Back when I was a kid, I was captivated by the 1985 movie “The Goonies,” which follows a group of kids on a perilous but thrilling adventure in search of hidden treasure. If only something like that could happen to me in my hometown!
Alas, the only treasure-hunting adventures took place in my imagination, as I explored the dark corners of my basement or back woods.
That’s why (finally, in my early 40s) I decided to write my own exciting tale of mystery and adventure…
This is an idea that was percolating in my mind for years, and I’m so happy that I was able to see it through. I always wanted to write the kind of story that inspired me as a kid, and this is that book! It is written for middle-graders (ages 8-12) but I know that people of all ages can enjoy it.
Thanks for helping me spread the word!
