I grew up almost living in the local library. Reading was my escape and the library was my portal. I loved boys adventure stories and have been amazed at the reports that say boys don't read. So I decided to write the kind of stories I remembered. The result is A Stairway To Danger. More edgy than what I read, maybe The Hardy Boys on steroids. It's probably PG. Some mild cursing and violence. Nothing too terrible, but there are guns and dead bodies.

The setting is a small town in Kentucky that is now a preserved village. In 1923, when the story takes place, it would have been a rural community with houses build in the early 1800's that were in bad condition. The book sprang from stories family members told me about growing up in this town called Shakertown. Tales of lost gold and river caves, and of adventure. 

Here's a blurb:

Will flips the body over with his boot. The eyeless face shocks Tom.
It's 1923 and two small town boys' curiosity about a rusty barge immerses them in a harrowing mystery.
Tom's past haunts him as the boys and their friends battle a shadowy group. Will Tom's "crazy" book ideas save them, or get them killed? And where does the stairway to danger lead?

Thank you
