The Liz & Toby Adventure Series

Liz and Toby are a sister and brother who love exploring the world around them and are always seeking new adventures. Liz is really smart and would do anything to keep her family members, even the furry ones, safe. Toby is very athletic and also passionate about their pets. Could their love of animals be attracting strange things into their lives? Until recently, Liz thought stories about ghosts and vampires were just made up to scare people, but considering what she and Toby have seen lately, it might be that those stories are real!

Join Liz, Toby, their two moms, Melissa and Kim, their dog, Fred, and their cat, Sam for fun-filled, slightly spooky adventures in their hometown of Pinewood and in all the exciting places to which they travel.

The Liz & Toby Adventures are short chapter books, perfect for ages 7-11.

 

My Dog Sees Ghosts

Liz and Toby are having a great evening until their dog, Fred, gets loose and runs directly to Pinewood’s most haunted location. They are determined to get Fred back, even if it means going into the creepy, old haunted house. What is it about the place that makes Fred so interested in getting in? Could it be the same thing that Liz and Toby fear will never let them out?

My Cat Hears Vampires

Liz and Toby are camping out, playing games and having a great time visiting their aunt and uncle when their cat, Sam, disappears. The search for Sam leads to a mysterious tunnel, a strange bat, possible treasure, and tales of vampires! Will Liz and Toby discover the truth of what’s happening before the bat drives them all… batty?

Should You Write for Yourself or Your Readers?

What's the Debate and Who Wins? I’ve been thinking about the classic debate writers and those who advise writers engage in about who we should write for — ourselves or our readers. I started researching both sides so I could understand the arguments. I was about 30...
