Harley is about to make her Debut!
Harley James & the Mystery of the Mayan King will be released on May 11, 2022. This is a special date for us because it's also my daughter Savannah's ninth birthday.
Savannah was the inspiration behind Harley James. In the summer of 2021, Savannah was watching a documentary series on National Geographic about a lost Mayan city. When I saw her engaged in the story of the Maya, I had an idea. What if we wrote an adventure story together that took place in the famous city of Tikal?
The rest is history. After some back and forth banter, we came up with the character of Harley James. Savannah even helped come up with some of the plot points for the book.
Harley also has some special skills. She is an amateur cryptologist, or someone who excels at solving riddles and decoding messages. I love this idea of incorporating riddles into the story, because it engages kids beyond just reading the words...they have to solve the puzzles, too.
I'll be sharing more about Harley in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can pre-order the eBook on Amazon.com here.
Enjoy the Adventure!
