Can you keep a secret?
My family and my extended family, including nieces and nephews, kept a very BIG secret from last summer until Christmas Day!
And they blew me away! Two years ago, we started editing what I had written about Johnny and Mr Fredericks — a fisherman sea captain and an orphan boy who became partners, and had many surprising adventures. “We” was my niece Carol, and myself, with the help of a dear friend, Heather.
It went through nine drafts before we thought it was really ready.
Johnny and Mr Fredericks were given a treasure map, so there is a treasure hunt, and pirates, and dragons and a rescue from an iceberg. It is filled with adventures.
The secret… they had my book published!!
I’m posting some pictures that my son, Ra, took of me as I realized what was in the box!
