Amber and Autumn, elementary school sisters, don’t seek out problems to solve, but they often find themselves engaged in uncovering truths, solving mysteries, and helping others in the process. Autumn’s natural curiosity, combined with her boldness, leads her to push for answers to anything she does not understand. Amber, her older sister, more cautious and easily spooked, prefers to let Autumn drive ahead to solve mysteries which come their way, but her keen skills of observation often lead to the resolutions they seek.
In The Secret Room, the girls, during their stay at a  B&B, discover a long-forgotten room in the attic and uncover its secrets. The story takes place at the House of Seasons, a bed-and-breakfast in historic Jefferson, Texas. Their quest to uncover secrets takes the girls on a journey through Jefferson history including a cemetery, a river boat tour, and even an evening ghost walk.






PRAISE FOR THE SECRET ROOM:
“Great book, really enjoyed reading.  I'd guess a target audience would be 7 to 13-year-olds. Thank you for allowing me the honor to preview your book.  I look forward to purchasing your published work.” -- Joseph (Teen Beta reader)

The Secret Room is a fun read. Not only is it a mystery; it also contains some of the history of Jefferson, Texas, and the surrounding area, as well as pictures of some special places there. Children and adults will enjoy reading it, just as I did.  -- Carol (Adult Beta Reader)

“Overall I thought it was a great book. I would be excited to read the next book in the series.” --Madeline (4th grade Beta Reader)

 “The whole time I liked the suspense and the mystery side of it.” – Beta Reader

“I relate more to Amber because she doesn't like a situation without light and she doesn't like doing scary things first. She sends her little sister in to do it first and I do that. Amber is the older sister and so am I.” – Beta Reader

SNEAK PEAK: The Amber-Autumn Series, Illustrated Editions!

Work by the administration, staff, students, and parents of the middle school art department of Legacy Christian Academy on a special student project allowed me to showcase art work produced by the students. The students did an outstanding job and their work is included throughout the new illustrated editions of the first three books of the Amber-Autumn Mystery series. It was a pleasure to meet the students, see their work, and provide an opportunity for the students to share their work in the books.

The students retain the rights to their illustrations, so I can’t show them here, but I can show you the great new covers and tell you a little about each.


CHRISTMAS GARDEN ILLUSTRATED (Book #1)
In this first in a series debut chapter book, elementary school sisters Amber and Autumn investigate wild rumors of a witch in a haunted house. Enjoy their exploits as they discover the truth and bring the whole town together in the process.



GRANDFATHER’S BLESSING ILLUSTRATED (Book #2)
In this second chapter book Amber and Autumn go to an estate sale in an old home and discover a secret room in the library. They purchase an ornate chest they find in the room and later uncover its hidden mysteries that lead them on an adventure they won't soon forget.


GOLDEN CAMOUT ILLUSTRATED (Book #3)
In this third Amber - Autumn Mystery chapter book the girls enjoy a spring break campout on a farm. Intrigued by the host couple's stories of a bank robber's hidden gold and ghost sightings, the girls explore the attic and follow leads provided by the farmer. Find out what they discover with the help of Charlie Brown, their King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.






John writes chapter books that appeal to elementary school children to capture their imagination and help them discover the love of reading early in life. John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife and his King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Charlie Brown.
John spent his childhood in a small town in east Texas. He attended college at the University of Texas earning a BS in Physics and a BA in Math (minor in Computer Science). His years in the high-tech industry, most of it on the “bleeding edge,” allowed him to develop new technology with software.
John had the privilege of co-authoring two editions of CallManager Fundamentals. The two books sold over 23,000 copies, exceeding the publisher’s goal of 8,000. Having discovered his love for writing while still working in high tech, he began writing fiction in his spare time and published The Enclave, a mystery / suspense novel, in 2010.

After leaving high-tech in 2014, he now spends full time pursuing his writing passion. He loves writing books that help children discover early in life that reading is a fun adventure. He recently released illustrated editions of the first three books in the Amber-Autumn mystery series: Christmas Garden Illustrated, Grandfather’s Blessing Illustrated, and Golden Campout Illustrated. The Secret Room is the fourth book in the series.
