GIRL'S BEST FRIEND: A MAGGIE BROOKLYN MYSTERY, is about a twelve-year-old girl who walks a few dogs after school and stumbles upon some mysteries along the way. I came up with the idea while walking my own scrappy mutt, Aunt Blanche, in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Maggie Brooklyn is inspired by two of my favorite characters: Nancy Drew and Harriet the Spy.
Like traditional sleuths, Maggie cares about truth and justice. But she's got plenty of regular-kid dilemmas, too: a secret crush on a cute boy, a sometimes-annoying twin brother, and an ex-best friend who's still super-mean. Add some missing dogs to the mix, and let the adventure begin!
One of the best things about being a writer is hearing from readers, so if you do get a chance to read GIRL'S BEST FRIEND, definitely let me know what you think!
