★ Purple Dragonfly Award Winner for Middle Grade Fiction ★
Nick Caden is a normal teen with a "supernatural" knack for finding trouble and solving paranormal mysteries. After solving the mysterious disappearance of Billy the Kid's "ghost" in Deadwood, Nick lands a job as a roving reporter for The Cool Ghoul Gazette, a website on paranormal or supernatural disturbances.
When the editor sends Nick to investigate a murder in Transylvania, North Carolina, the young super sleuth finds a corpse with fangs, bite marks and a stake driven through the heart. If Nick proves vampires are real, his job as an investigative journalist is set for life. Except Nick isn't convinced vampires are real.
But once he begins to peel back the clues surrounding the murder Nick finds his new job is not only dangerous but could suck the life out of him.

"The opening line got me in, and the snappy writing kept me going. At first, I thought I knew what was happening, but that turned out not to be the case. This repeated several times, and I enjoyed each turn. Reading took me back decades, to the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. That nostalgia was powerful (though you may have to be about as old as the main character's aunt for it to apply). We didn't have the Internet or cell phones back then, of course, and those can throw a wrench into mystery works. Here, they are incorporated in a believable way (instead of being nerfed out of existence completely). The book is a pleasure to read straight through." - Matthew
"I really enjoyed reading this book, recommend it." - Paul
Vampires: A Myth Based On Real Words from the One Who Is Life
"Everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him will have eternal life. I will raise him up at the last day. The bread that comes down from heaven is my flesh. Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, you have no life in you. Unless you drink his blood you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life. My flesh is real food. My blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me. I also remain in him. The one who feeds on me will live. The one who feeds on me will live forever." - Jesus, 33 A.D.
Parents can trust the Caden Chronicles. There is no sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language, only positive moral values and a wee little bit of humor.: )
