RECOMMENDATIONS
"Another very good read, the children enjoy going through them. Well done."
"I have been using the I Spy GI Series this year as part of our schooling. The stories are written for all ages, and are easily understood by even the youngest of children. We enjoy reading the stories, based on the Bible, and always have fun doing the activities. By learning one bible scripture each book, the children have found it easy to memorize each verse – and remember it! We would highly recommend this series for any family, Sunday school or children’s group as a wonderful, easy, fun and enjoyable way to learn more about Jesus and the Bible." Brisbane (Au) Mum

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in churches! My parents and grandparents and family were all involved. When I was too old to go to Sunday school I started teaching Sunday school (we only have Sunday school for children in Australia). That's just what you did in those days.
For most of the next 40+ years I was involved in children's ministry. (Of course I can't really be that old??)
Part of that time was as the wife of a small church pastor, so I appreciate the need for good, inexpensive material.
As the mother of four and grandmother of nine, I understand the advantages of good solid Christian foundations.
We all want our kids to turn out well, don’t we? How can we best help them along the path of life?
Exactly how many stories have your written now? How many books?
There are 24 books each with four stories, and 2 books with two stories. This makes a total of 100 stories!
Well, actually they're not stories, they're cases. We're detectives you know! We're spying on God.
There's also a booklet on what it means to be a Christian.
