This busy mother of three is a full time medical transcriptionist. She also participates in virtual classroom visits and can be found at home school and book events promoting her writing.
On a dare, Elysabeth entered her first writing contest in 2005 and took second place for Train of Clues, a children's mystery story. She was then inspired to take that story and start writing a series for children, the premise being that each state would be the mystery. Each book in the series concentrates on one state and there are supplemental study guides available, which take the series cross curriculum.
This is the cover of one of the books in the Junior Geography Detective Squad (JGDS) series. The books focus on middle grade geography of the different states. The series, loosely based on the original Train of Clues story, follows four friends in their handheld game playing adventure. The game gives the four friends clues and they need to guess which state is being described.
