Missy Barrett's Adventures

The amazing adventures of a fictional child

Guess What I’m Up To Next

Probably you guys are not going to guess what I have coming up next this year so I’m not going to make you guys guess at all.  I’m going to share with you what I’m up to instead because sometimes telling is way more fun than guessing.

Sometime in April, I’m going to be kicking off a new series:  The Missy Barrett Detective Series.

In case you’re wondering what kind of detective books they’re going to be, I thought I would share this teaser blurb I’ve been working on so you know exactly what kind of detective books they’re going to be.

This is the city: Sevierville, Tennessee. I live here. I’m a kid.

It was Wednesday in the middle of the week like always. I arrived home from school fifteen minutes earlier, and was enjoying a snack of cheese and crackers with a glass of cold milk when I started thinking about the plaque I saw outside Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre in Gatlinburg last time my family and I were there to see one of their shows.

My name is Missy Barrett, and when I grow up, I’m going to be a undercover private eye supersleuth detective. Until then, I’m a kid.  A kid who likes to solve mysteries.  Mysteries like ‘The Case of the Vanishing Valise.’

Just like with all my other books, people and places that are real are going to be in my books.  Sometimes it’s a good idea to ask people that are your family and friends and fans and followers to help you find people and places that are real to be in a book, so that’s how come I’m posting about this today.

All you have to do is share the link to this blog and ask people you know to look at it and maybe even share it with their friends.  That way, everybody’s going to see it and lots of people that are from around where I live can let me know if they want to be in a Missy Barrett book.  Here’s the poster I made up so people know what I’m looking for.

Maybe you know somebody that sounds like Question #1 or #2 or #3 and fits what I’m looking for.  Maybe your mom or dad or aunt or uncle or grandma or grandpa is that kind of person.  Maybe YOU are that person.

Anyway, that’s just a little tiny part of what’s up next in my life. Stick around to find out what else is going on.  Like I always say:  Come for the fun and stay for the excitement!
