Jungle Jeopardy, An Adventure Story

Jungle Jeopardy, an adventure novel, will be featured during my book signing today at Discover Teas, Village Shops at Kingsmill in Williamsburg. I'm excited about this book because it's my first adventure story--think Indiana Jones--and it focuses on the Maya ruins in Central America, a subject that fascinates me. Dana and Clifton, the heroine and hero, from Secrets by the Sea  continue their search for the Brasher doubloon in this book. Tyler Hunter is a new character who intrigues me.

While Jungle Jeopardy is a stand-alone book, readers may want to first learn about Dana and Clifton in Secrets by the Sea before opening the new book. I still find it amazing that characters come in and take over their own stories. Things have a way of turning out not at all the way I planned!

Thanks, Hilary, Alex, and Enid! The Maya civilization is fascinating. It's a tragedy that the Spanish destroyed their books and records!

Hi, Monti,

I didn't realize you had your first signing already. I wasn't sure when your book would launch....

It's next on my reading list. This weekend for sure!

I hope the signing went well.
