Murphy's Law

1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star
Murphy just wants a chance at a normal life – one where people aren’t locked in lockers, don’t throw red jello on classmates, never fall from second-story windows into the hedges and certainly don’t believe in (much less talk to) fairies. When the most popular guy in school, hires the I’ll-Detect-Anything Detective Agency, Murphy thinks she’ll finally be able to rewrite Murphy's Law. More

About Debi Faulkner

A native Detroiter by birth, I left the Motor City in 2001 for the Netherlands with my husband (a chiropractor) and my small children. In December of 2003, we moved again, this time to Ireland. While there, I took part in a mentorship program with the Irish author, Lia Mills, who helped me in making the transition from poetry to prose and from writing verses in poems to writing chapters in novels.

In August 2006, we relocated yet again to the Netherlands. Now, if only I was fluent in Dutch . . .

The upside of this nomadic lifestyle is that I have much more time than I would have had in the states to spend with my writing.

My non-fiction piece, Binder Clips, won first place at the 2002 Feed the Writers Weekend in Amsterdam, and my chapter book, Kissy Frog, won an Honorable Mention in the 2006 W.I.N. Competition. I have also had numerous poems published online and in print literary journals, and several have won awards, including a chapbook shortlisted for the 2005 Listowel Writer's Week Poetry Competition. I am a member of SCBWI and IrishPen, and I have a BA in English/Creative Writing.

Summoning is my first published novel.

Review by: me ik on April 05, 2011 : star star star star star
This is a great book for preteens(and younger/older children, depending on level). In this well written mystery, Murphy gets from point A to point B with some detecting and logical thinking ... and some surprise help from friends, old and new. Enjoy the familiar and unfamiliar scenes, with some fun fantasy sprinkled in.
