Carrie Cross performs a Live Reading of Skylar Robbins

Live Reading by Carrie Cross at the Waterford Public Library

It was wonderful meeting everyone at the Waterford Public Library in Waterford, Wisconsin Friday August 7th during my live reading of Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills. The librarian, Tricia Cox, planned some fun crafts for the kids, including drawing with invisible ink pens, and using a fingerprinting kit with different colored ink and stamp pads.

After reading chapter one from The Mystery of Shadow Hills (Author Carrie Cross, Teen Mystery Press 2013), I signed books and took pictures with all of the Skylar Robbins fans. Then we had a drawing for prizes! Five kids won free toy binoculars to start their own detective kits, and one girl won a signed copy of The Mystery of Shadow Hills. Thanks to everyone who attended, and to Marjorie Stark Suto photography for recording the event. It was a lot of fun and I hope to come back again next year after publishing, Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Missing Heiress (Teen Mystery Press, 2016).

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Missing Heiress

VenturaPier

In the third volume of the Skylar Robbins mystery series, Skylar and her new heartthrob Daniel try to discover what happened to the famous heiress, Xandra Collins. She disappeared mysteriously three years ago, without leaving a trace.

Or did she?

One mind-bending clue was left behind: a puzzling poem written in Xandra’s hidden diary, pointing to a clue hidden underneath the Santa Monica pier.

Skylar risks her life to hunt for this clue and figure out whether or not Xandra Collins is still alive.

And it was worth every dangerous second.

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of the Missing Heiress will be available on Amazon in 2016. The first two Skylar Robbins mysteries are available now on Amazon.

Agents: if you are not getting an Identikit email within a week, it is because you are emailing from an address that can not receive emails. I have had repeated requests from prospective agents and have replied to the address they emailed me from, and my return emails did not go through. Some schools, home computers, and libraries have blocks on their computers and can not receive incoming emails. This is for the students’ safety and I respect this!

Skylar responds to every Secret Agent request and fan letter. If you don’t get a response, it is because of your computer’s settings. Please ask your mom or dad to email me from an address I can reply to.

Happy sleuthing!

Love,
Skylar
