About the Author

Award-Winning Author, Anne Schraff, published her first book when she was just a teenager. Discovering her love for writing at such a young age, Anne used her personal experiences, living amidst segregation in the 1950s, as inspiration. She received her BA and MA from Cal State University at Northridge. She was a high school teacher in San Diego before deciding to write full time. Living through times of racial strife left an indelible impression on her, which continues to inspire her to this day. --This text refers to the CD-ROM edition.

"You don't need a weapon," the creature insisted. "You should know that violence solves nothing."

"Oh, spare me!" Joe objected. "Violence solves quite a lot of things as your need to be rescued violently by us proves! It is rather that violence is not necessarily the BEST way to solve things when there is a peaceful alternative available!"

"Yes, I see your point," the creature admitted.

OK, I made up that last part, but I wish Joe HAD given such a response to this, mercifully, the sole example of PC idiocy in this book.

Saddleback Educational Publishing has come up with a brilliant concept for solving a very serious problem: the great decline in reading among today's students. Their solution? Make assigned reading materials exciting! Their Pageturners books are short novels, designed to entice even the least motivated students into reading.

This confronts both of the major problems with more traditional readers: if they are not mind-numbingly dull, they are excruciatingly didactic, cramming some important "teachings" whether moral, religious, or (these days) politically correct down the throats of children so hard as to turn them off of reading for good.

Joe Stebbins wants no part of Holly Atchison. He had his fill of nosy, dishonest reporters three years ago when he first told his story of being kidnapped by aliens, but Holly has a trump card. Her mother claims to have been kidnapped the very same night from the very same place! An SF story with lots of thrills and lots of twists before the end!

Plus, for what they are intended to be, reading textbooks, they are wonderful.

The former fat girl, now gorgeous actress, from Rollie Torres' high school days walks in the door of the detective agency he now works for, begging for protection from a mysterious stalker, and the "surprise twist ending" will be obvious to most readers from the very first chapter. If Rollie is THIS easily fooled perhaps he should reconsider a career in law enforcement! Hard to believe that the same author wrote the MUCH better The Case of the Bad Seed.

Still, for what they are intended to be, reading textbooks, they are wonderful. The fact that students who learn to read better and to love reading from these books may soon find them skimpy fare for pleasure reading is not entirely bad, assuming their teachers quickly move them on to bigger and better things in the school library or the bookstore if necessary.

Nikki Peters, currently an executive secretary at a bank, had applied for the job as executive secretary to the founder of the Royal Mattress Company for three reasons: the pay was outstanding, the job was described as "unique and challenging", and she wanted out of her current situation. But Hal Dempsey was REALLY hiring an amateur detective, somebody to worm her way into the life of his wastrel youngest son and provide Hal with the information on which to decide whether to finally give up and disinherit him. Thus begins an interesting variation on the detective story with lots of twists and turns before the end.
