Although the Chet and Bernie series is for adults, some kids are reading them. I sometimes read adult books when I was a kid. Let freedom ring!

Here’s the kind of reader feedback that any writer would treasure:

“Hi, my name is XXXX and I am 11, live in XXXXXX, and I have read all of your books on Chet and Bernie (and the short ebooks).

Unless you already have an idea, could I pitch some ideas for the 10th book in your series (if you are doing one)? One idea I had was for Bernie and Chet to go overseas to London to see the new job offer that Suzie gave him in Scents and Sensibility. (But your 9th book hasn’t come out yet so if there is something in that book that interrupts the plot of him checking out London, I’m sorry). In London there could be a missing kid case, in which one of Suzie’s friend’s kid goes missing. Another idea I had was for them to go to Wyoming for a missing kid case. Basically, as Chet would say, missing kids are our MO, which is why I am pitching these to you. Sorry if the first one seemed like the plot of Paw and Order.
Again these are just suggestions, thank you for reading!

Have a nice day!”

I certainly will!

The joy of writing for kids – excerpt from an email sent by 12-year-old reader:

I have read Woof, Arf, and Bow Wow, all of which I have re-read at least 10 times. The series is my absolute favorite! Every time I open A Birdie and Bowser novel, I feel like I am there. I am Birdie, with her handsome doggie, solving mysteries together. We are jumping off of bridges together, finding my father’s killer, or finding Snoozy and the mysterious Mr. Nice Guy. I feel this connection to Birdie when I read your books. She is a young Sherlock Holmes, and so am I. I always find out my Christmas and birthday presents before I open them! And although I’ve never jumped off of a bridge, I have jumped a fence when I thought the police were after me for trespassing without knowing it. It was only a pick-up with an orange light on top (one of those over-sized load trucks)!

… re the Bowser and Birdie series:

“hi, I have to read 40 books by may, and I could easily do that until I found out I have to read different genres, I love your series and none other. could you make another book, or recommend me a book? I’m looking at the Chet and Bernie series. no rush or sweat to make a new book, but it would be great if you did”

A recommendation? How about:
