[New Release] Wonder Stories Mobile Phone App for Middle Grade Readers

Wonder Stories | Middle Grade Reading App | Mobile PhoneHello! I am pleased to announce that Wonder Stories, an app designed to help middle grade kids read, is now available in the Apple store and on Google Play. This app reinvents the story by allowing kids to help the characters unravel a mystery.

Right now, the app is free. Two of my stories are now available! You can enjoy “The Case of the Popped Balloons” and “The Case of the Multiplying Bunnies” along with several other stories when you download the app to your device. My stories take place in a magical circus-themed school and stars Jesse Chipperfield and Tanner Newbury.

Due to COVID-19, the launch at SXSW was scrapped. If you know of anyone who loves tiny mysteries, I’d appreciate a recommendation. The designer of the app would also love reviews and feedback–especially from librarians! Getting the word out will be a little harder now, but I hope with a little luck we can make that happen.

Thanks and happy reading!

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
