Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The idea for writing the Wells Worthy Adventure Series came from my (then) 10-year old son the summer we were studying writing and the elements of a good story. When I asked him what kind of character he would like to write, he described Wells. When I asked what his main character would be doing, he told me Wells would find an old treasure map and go on an exciting adventure. I had so much fun working with my son on his concept that when the project was over I asked if I could take his story idea and run with it. He was thrilled with the idea! 

What makes this series stand out is its setting in Cairo, Egypt, against the backdrop of the Arab Spring. Expatriates living and working in the country must practice extra vigilance in their daily lives, and diplomats are no exception. Even more interesting are the historical elements of the book taking readers back to the late 1800's when England, Italy, and France were in a race to amass the most Egyptian artifacts for their respective museum collections. The story also takes the reader back to the British occupation and the construction and significance of the Suez Canal.

Finally, Wells is a 16-year-old who, like many boys that age, is coming of age. During the course of "The Desert Sands," readers see his struggle with voicing his thoughts and ideas. This theme is carried throughout the series as Wells eventually gains his confidence and learns to trust not only his words but also his instincts.

Elements of conflict include culture, covert government activities, and relationships between family and friends. Subsequent books in the series delve into metaphysics, quantum theory, and issues of government integrity.

About the Author

I love sharing storiesand inspiration through my writing. Whether I'm writing crime fiction, teenadventures or non-fiction self-empowerment books, my ultimate wish is to givereaders a great experience. Regardless of the genre, I want to inspire,educate, and surprise!
When not writing, I enjoy spending quality timewith hubby and kids. Of course, I love reading and have piles and piles ofbooks just waiting for my attention. It's important to me to commune withnature daily, even if it's just going outside with the dogs. 

Because I ama dedicated life-long learner, and I like to incorporate cool scienceinto my fiction, I frequently take online college classes from Coursera or work throughlearning modules on Khan Academy, in addition to reading.

Last, but not least, I love hearing from readers,so let's connect on Twitter (my favorite social media venue), FaceBook,Google+, LinkedIn, or Pinterest!
