Several years ago, after reading the umpteenth Magic Treehouse book with my daughters I decided to write children’s book for them. I asked them what they would like me to write about and I got various answers from fairies to unicorns. After thinking about it for a while, I decided my first children’s book had to be about two little girls and the ocean. I was living in North Carolina at the time and one of my favorite places to visit on this planet is the Outer Banks so it all came together.
The story: When an injured sea turtle shows up near their home on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Jayne and Marie, along with their friends Javier and Monique, search the beach to find the turtle’s nest and protect it from danger. They know the time is getting short and if they don’t find it soon, the eggs might not get a chance to hatch.
This is the most recent review for Swimming With Sharks.
The third and fourth Jayne and Marie children’s stories are currently licensed to the Newspapers in Education program. They are Hurricane! and Fight for Fort Hatteras. Contact your local newspaper and tell them you want them to run the stories..
