LURE Your KIDS into READING


If your child turns up their nose at READING,

Plus a little writing "Magic" to keep them turning the page.

FINALLY!

NO WAY could your young teen not "GET" a ghost that was
channeled into the story by the author - NAME and ALL!

Her MOTHER no less!



Okay!  Okay! It was MY mother, and it took a few chapters before I realized what was happening.  But by then I was on a roll, and something told me (guess what?) that my dear mum was quite tickled by the whole idea of being features in one of my books. . .                  So I kept writing, and channeling, until I had it just the way Mom wanted it to end.

The Revenge of Thelma Hill


Author Margot Finke
Cover Art Art:  "Awesome" Agy Wilson 

When Frannie and her twin brother move to Oregon with their dad, Frannie has no thought of ghosts, creepy basements, or giant arachnid "familiars." Trapping a killer was definitely not on her summer vacation to-do list. As the sibling rivalry between her and Jeff grew more intense each day, Frannie dreamed about her missing mom, and worried about making new friends. But the ghost of Thelma Hill changed everything when she begged Frannie to trap her killer. Could she and her nerdy twin trap him? Or would they both end up sharing their basement with Thelma Hill - forever?
