Posted by reneehand on March 30, 2016 at 9:35 AM

I visited students at Sequoya Elementary for an author visit on March 29th. These students read book 1 in my Crypto-Capers Series-The Case of the Missing Sock. I had a great time talking with these students and answering their many questions about the book and about me being an author. Thanks so much for the oppportunity.  I had a great time and the teacher and the students were great. I hope you enjoy the other books in the series.

Discover the world of creative storytelling that will send your child's imagination soaring

Posted by reneehand on January 6, 2015 at 12:30 AM

My son would like to start his own business as a creative storytelling game creator. Please help with the campaign if possible to jumpstart his career. It is very much appreciated. There are lots of perks for you to choose from.

What is this about?

Gabriel's Story

This storytelling card game is a way to help inspire creativity by using a child's imagination. Many children get writer's block. They spend half of their time just trying to figure out what to write about. I am one of those children. I thought, wouldn't it be easier to have a picture to prompt an idea? And with that, this storytelling game was born. With wonderfully illustrated pictures children will become inspired to create fun and imaginative stories to write about or verbally tell. This is a card game and can be taken anywhere. Children can use it for their story writing or as a fun game to play with family and friends. This game is engaging. Want to get a group of people to suddenly bond and laugh together? Play the game and instantly fun ensues.

 

The Books

Funding will also go towards the producing of more books in The Adventures of Joe-Joe Nut and Biscuit Bill Adventure Series. These are mystery books that are science based. Teachers in school districts or homeschools will be able to use these books as a cross curriculum for students in 2nd to 5th grades. They fill a niche. They are mysteries that cover topics such as animal tracks, rocks and minerals, and weathering, erosion, and art. The newest book will incorporate Greek Mythology.

Book 4 is The Parade of Heroes

Greek History abounds in this 4th adventure in the Joe-Joe Nut and Biscuit Bill award-winning mystery series. Joe-Joe and Biscuit are visiting Acorn Valley's Greek Festival when mysterious things begin happening. Greek hero balloons for the parade are stolen, as are other Greek related items throughout the town. With the parade being a day away, will Joe-Joe and Biscuit be able to make the connection between the items and solve the case before all events are cancelled? Educational fun is added to the back of the book that will enhance learning as readers dive into the world of a Greek mystery.

This book will satisfy the standards schools are requiring for Greek Mythology. Great to use in the classroom. This is a fun way to cover this field.
