Shirley Link is my response to a market that’s saturated with heroes who stumble on victory. I wanted to tell the story of a brilliant 14 year old girl who has zero problems with her own smarts, who knows just how to beat the bad guy and who knows full well that she’d be miserable without her friends. While the adventures are limited to her small town, her small town is prone to big adventures. As the series goes on I’m finding that her home is as much a character as she is. In fact, in the third volume of the series (Shirley Link & The Treasure Chest), Shirley must save her elderly neighbor’s home from foreclosure by hunting down a chest of gold in the hills around her town. – Ben Zackheim

Who is Shirley Link?

“I put on my kindest face for the poor man. I even smile a little. Marie slashes her fingers across her neck, telling me to stop with the fake grin. She must think I look creepy again. I keep smiling, though. I need to practice. I have a problem with people thinking I’m mean.” – Shirley Link

And so it goes, for Shirley Link. Brilliant, brazen and still a whole year away from her driver’s permit. Sure, she’s only 14 years old and has homework to do, but she’ll put it aside for the right mystery!
Shirley Link’s kickoff adventure pits her against a thief who’s stolen thirty thousand dollars from her school’s safe. Usually, she’d wrap that kind of case up before The Big Bang Theory. But there’s one intriguing, frustrating detail. The half-ton safe disappeared too! Shirley must find the culprit quickly, or else her beloved principal, Mr. Reese, will lose his job. As she digs deeper, Mr. Reese looks more and more guilty. Will Shirley save him, or get him tossed in jail?
“This is how it is to be Shirley Link, the best detective in the world, if I do say so myself. I can spot a lie like most people spot a zit. I see connections where they hide best. And I get in trouble every time I try to tell people what I do with my free time. Only a handful know about my talent. I prefer to keep it that way.” – Shirley Link

Genre: Children’s eBooks | Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

Shirley Link loves pirates. Well, she loves the idea of them. She wouldn’t like them if they were running up the street stealing bikes, but digging for treasure and swashbuckling adventure are on the top of her to-do list. So when a clue pops up that there’s a hidden pirate treasure under her hometown, Shirley gets to work.

In Shirley Link & The Treasure Chest, the third volume in the critically-acclaimed Middle-Grade Mystery series, our heroine takes on her toughest challenge yet. But this time the stakes are bigger than ever. If she fails to find the treasure, or if it ends up being a hoax, then Shirley’s elderly neighbor, Mrs. Smiley, will lose her home to the bank.

More Shirley, Dad, Wiley and Marie than ever before. That’s right. Even Mr. Link gets to join in the adventure!
