The reviews are in!"Shirley Link is a new girl detective series that my daughter is crazy about. This is an amazing series, my friends! Your kids will be hooked and you'll feel realllllly good about it."

Edward Hemingway, Author/Illustrator for Bad Apple and Bump in the Night
"This Veronica Mars for the tween-set is funny, smart, and full of preternatural wisdom. A thirteen year old gumshoe with mad crazy perception skills, Shirley Link sets out to solve the mystery of a missing school safe while at the same time juggling jealous best friends, boys, and homework. She does this with aplomb and the occasional, hilarious zinger."
Amazon readers" a era of young adult literature full of self-doubting, somewhat wishy-washy protagonists, Shirley (like Sherlock) has full confidence in her own abilities, making her a much more timeless character."
"Shirley Link is just the kind of protagonist I want in books for my children - and for me. I gave this a pre-read before handing off my Kindle to my daughter, and to my delight I was engrossed throughout."

Product description:Thor, Iron Man and The Hulk need some help! A perfect edition of The Avengers #1 comic book is about to be stolen by a supremely confident thief. Can the first appearance of the super-team escape his clutches? If Shirley has anything to say about it, you bet. But even with a ton of clues she senses more is going on than a simple heist. Is her new arch-enemy after more than a valuable comic book?

The idea for the Shirley Link middle grade mystery series (for kids 9-12) came about suddenly. As I spoke with my pre-teen niece about life, the universe and Dr. Who I realized something: Sherlock Holmes' incredible wit and powers of observation could probably only be matched by a smart teenage girl. So Shirley Link was born! I'm having a blast writing her adventures, and look forward to doing it for many more years with your support. Please spread the word if you enjoy Shirley! A little bit about me: I spent 15 years producing online games for Viacom, Sony, ESPN and AOL that have been played by millions of people. While I found the work fulfilling, I wanted to commit myself to writing. So I gave up the New York corporate life for a writerly one in the Forbidden Forest at 42.5098 N, 72.6995 W. I'm working on another series titled The Camelot Kids.
